Love Is In the Air

It is the month of love! It's the time of year to show those we care about how much we love them. While cards and flowers and candy are the traditional gifts of love, this year I suggest giving something that could save your life... a mammogram! If you don't have insurance coverage, there are ways to get no-cost or low cost exams. Tulsa Project Woman helps women get mammograms and even helps fund follow up care if necessary. You can contact them by calling 834-7200 or check out their website at

The other thing you can do is talk with your loved ones about their health. Encourage them to get their regular check-ups! Know your numbers! What's your blood pressure? How about your cholesterol level? How much do you weigh and is that in the healthy zone? It's important to see your doctor every year, just for a general check-up!

I know often time we put our own health on the back burner but take this month to do something for yourself... something for your health!
