The National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc., knows how dependent we have become on technology, especially our cell phones. So, the organization has created a website and app aimed at making it easier for the digital generation to create early detection screening schedules. The website allows you to create a personalized plan and set screening reminders that can be delivered to your phone or email.

Monthly self-exams, yearly clinical exams (which are performed by a physician) and mammograms for women over 40 are all extremely important. When caught in its early localized stages, the five year breast cancer survival rate is 98 percent. Check out
to set up your personalized plan.
