It’s my day to once again help spread awareness for breast cancer screening.
I hope every woman is aware of how important monthly self exams and especially annual mammograms are each year once you reach 40, or before if like me, you have a family history of breast cancer.
I can attest that mammograms are no fun!
I’ve been getting them regularly for nearly half my life.
Diagnostic MRIs & ultrasounds that some years for me are every 6 months instead of 12, aren’t fun either, but it beats the alternative. I also know that if they find something in their testing they’re probably catching it early & it will hopefully be easily treatable.
Early detection is so important.
There are so many reasons to try to stay healthy &
our precious new grand baby, Emma, is a good reason for me!
I’d like to offer this new little quilt pattern to make for yourself or a friend.
It measures approx. 6″ x 6″ & fits nicely on the 6 x 6 Scroll Stand by Ackfeld.
Use it as a reminder to get your annual screening.

The #SewPink Initiative was created by ByAnnie.com LLC to raise awareness for breast cancer throughout the year. Our efforts culminate in an annual blog hop during October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month to promote self-care, awareness, early detection, and support for those affected by breast cancer.
