Promise to get a Mammogram for you or a loved one http://mam4.me/Em

The Spread the Word Contest is ending in a week, on October 31st, 2009! Please make a mammogram promise by playing the healthiest game in town, powered by the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance.

For women over 40, getting an annual mammogram is one of the most important things you can do to protect your health. That’s why I’m spreading the word about mammograms. What’s more, if you make a Mammogram Promise at mammogrampromise.org, you’ll get the chance to win a glassybaby. All you have to do is click on the link below and make your Mammogram Promise at mammogrampromise.org.

Lots of women, including Washington State Senator Patty Murray and Washington State Governor Christine Gregoire, have promised to get their mammograms, and so should you.
And best of all (at least for me!), your Mammogram Promise could help me win one of four Spread the Word Grand Prizes. That’s something you could win too! Thanks!

Patty Murray

United States Senator, Washington State
“Early detection is critical to surviving breast cancer, and that is why I support campaigns like ‘Make a Mammogram Promise’ that encourage women to make a strong commitment to their health. I am working hard to increase federal funding for screening, treating and ultimately curing this terrible disease, and I encourage women across Washington state to join the effort to save lives.”

Christine Gregoire

Governor, Washington State
“I am not a doctor, but I am a breast cancer survivor, and I urge all Washington women to do what I have done. Learn about the disease. Get regular check-ups. Be aware.”

Fran Bigelow

Chocolatier, Fran’s Chocolates
“A mammogram is so important to me that I have just made it part of my yearly check-up. I schedule it at the same time I make my appointment for my physical, so I always remember it.”
