Why are you participating?
My mother for a number of years made note that she “felt something” but never took the time nor effort to seek any cancer prevention/early detection. She said she didn’t want to spend the time or money and was scared of what they might find out, since she had no medical insurance, her excuse was that it was “better to not know." She went to the hospital and found that she had stage 4 breast cancer and it had moved into her bones as well. At that time they gave her 90 days to live, she managed to accept treatment and continue living for the next few years until she ultimately passed away two days after my birthday in 2016. If she had taken the steps to get checked early and often, I feel we would have had a much different outcome.
