Why I Love Lily Lark Parasols!

Happy Mammogram

Happy Mammogram

In honor of a very close friend who is a strong and beautiful breast cancer survivor (you know who you are my dear), I had my first mammogram yesterday, at the age of 36. That might younger than you would expect someone to start getting annual mammograms, but I’m a melanoma survivor and studies have shown that melanoma can spread to the breast.

It is never too late to make your health a priority, and it’s never too early to know your body.
