    You need to look into how to get a free mammogram or go to a free clinic. There are resources. Don't let this go. I am a three month survivor

    Please check with your local County Welfare Department and inquire about medical benefits. Explain your situation if they tell you that can't assist you request to speak to a supervisor or Director and ask it they can refer you to a local free clinic or hospital. Please do not ignore the lump. Continue to be proactive by seeking out medical care. Stay encouraged and know that I will be praying for you. Love and Blessings A Sister Of Hope

    Go to the health department and inquire if there are any free/sliding scale clinics. You may have to pay for a mammogram out of pocket, but it's worth it. You can contact the American cancer society or the komen foundation as well. They may be able to help.
