It's time again to think Pink Up. Breast cancer is the second leading cancer killer in U.S. women. Take the time today and on the 12th of every month to do a self breast exam.
Breast cancer doesn't have to be life changing nor does it have to define you, especially if it's caught early. That was the case for a Jackson, Mo. survivor. She was adamant about her mammograms and thanks to early intervention she is now 12 years cancer free.
Nichole Cartmell has this month's Pink Up story on The Breakfast Show and Heartland News at 5 p.m. today.
