The Crazy Quilters of Park Rapids donate the handmade quilt annually as part of Breast Cancer Awareness and as a reminder to women that mammograms can catch changes in the breast that may be early signs of cancer but are often too small to be felt.
There is no question that mammography is the best tool available for detecting breast cancer. What’s most important is that women and their health care providers discuss their specific, individual circumstances to best determine the safest and most-effective approach to medical care and the use of mammograms. Women need to understand their specific risk for breast cancer so they can make informed decisions with their providers about their individual mammography schedule.
