Richmond, VA – October 2, 2017 –October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month! So in a nutshell, this means to take care of yourself! Check your body! Ladies do a self check BUT also get your breast examination with a mammogram. More than likely it will reveal a good report, BUT if there is a problem, get it taken care NOW and while you can.

“I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in July 2016 with an 8 inch tumor in my left breast. It is no longer there. The cancer is gone and I thank God for healing my body, providing the resources and the right people and facilities to help me through the process. I am grateful for a praying church family, friends and those who have never even met me but kept me lifted up before the Lord,” says Sheilah Belle “The Belle.” “I am forever grateful!”
