Family Fun

There is a great discussion of the new guidelines for breast cancer screening over at the blog “Riding With the Top Down”. Kathleen Eagle shared her views on the subject and a lot of women have added theirs. It is worth the read, but I was disappointed that she included a picture of a woman […]
