October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

As you may be aware October is breast cancer awareness month, and if you follow Blyss on social media, you may also be aware that I was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. I wanted to take this moment to urge you to make an appointment to get your mammogram - mine probably saved my life. 
I was astonished to find out how many of my friends are not getting their yearly mammogram! There’s been some confusion about the recommended guidelines in recent years, however the American Cancer Society still recommends women get a yearly mammogram starting at age 40. One in six breast cancers occurs in women ages 40-49. Early detection can be the difference between life and death.
Every year since turning 40, I have gotten my mammogram. I had no signs or symptoms, no family history, in very good health (I ran a marathon earlier this year!), yet I have breast cancer.
Running has taught me many things - persevering and being able to do hard things is at the top of that list. I have no doubt that I will come out of this stronger and wiser. My prognosis is good and I’m already well on my way to being cancer free. I hate to think any of you not having that chance simply because you didn't get your screening. Please get your mammogram!
Find your Blyss,
Alyson
