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.
A Malden woman credits word of mouth and a self breast exam for saving her life. Dana Gough was diagnosed with breast cancer in February. However, Gough said she would have never even known if she hadn't done a self breast exam after hearing Monica Edmonds' story on KFVS 12. Now, this breast cancer survivor is making it her mission to encourage others to get checked.
Nichole Cartmell has this month's Pink Up story on The Breakfast Show and Heartland News at 5 p.m. today.
