Letter: Mammograms worth the cost; get one

August 17, 2013 

Mammograms save lives. Kadlec Mammography and Dr. John Droesch saved mine. I had a routine annual mammogram on May 24. Two very small cysts were identified. After various tests and a needle biopsy, breast cancer was identified. I had a mastectomy on July 1 and I am now in chemo at CBHO. Get a mammogram. If you think you cannot afford it, all the hospitals offer low-cost or no-cost mammograms.

Save your life, get a mamm.
