Have you heard of the 'More Than A Mammo' programme?
CANCER Research Initiatives Foundation (CARIF) and Sime Darby Medical Centre Subang Jaya (SDMC SJ) in Selangor have recently launched the "More Than A Mammo" Programme targeted to increase awareness and uptake of mammogram screening for breast cancer.
The programme aims to reach out to 1,000 Malaysian women by offering mammograms at a subsidised rate of RM50.
To participate, you need to be:
- A Malaysian woman aged 40 and above
- No personal history of breast cance
- Have not gone for a mammogram for the last 12 months.
However, if you are less than 40 years of age and have a close relative with breast cancer, you should consult your doctor about the benefits and limitations of mammograms.
With a doctor's referral, you are still eligible for the study.
If you are interested, do register at the Breast Care Centre, 1st Floor Outpatient Centre, Sime Darby Medical Centre Subang Jaya, Mondays to Fridays, or telephone +603-5639 1340 or log on to www.carif.com.my for more information.I remember last year when I brought my mom for the mammogram test at a private medical centre, it costs MYR120.
So, if you fits the criteria and care of your health, I strongly encourage you all to go for the test; this time for a good cause too!

Yesterday I took a day off to send the kids to nursery and also to take some time off to do some mini spring-cleaning after coming back from a 3-day camp (the first camp ever after more than 7yrs absence from attending such motivational camps; it is there where I met my hubby too!)
I like to share something I learn from the radio deejay yesterday. "Ask what we can do to xxx, rather than what others can do to us". And "what should we do to achieve our goal rather than waiting for it to miraculously happen.."
They were discussing with listeners to ask what they like to contribute back to the co. for year 2012. And what actions they should start doing to achieve the new year goals made.
As it is much easier to start the Change from Ourselves rather than hoping others(things, events, condition) to change.
So what I like myself to change this year? I hope to have more patience and peace at heart in everything I do. More patient with the kids.. And enjoy their cheekiness...more at peace with the chores n tasks I need to do daily...
First thing to do is to have a grateful heart and give thanks more.....first thing in the morning while getting the kids
Ready for school and driving thru the jam...Have Patience, sing songs :)
How about you? What do you like to achieve today?

Today marks another milestone for SE who started nursery school today together with KY. See that he's pretty excited&happy to finally upgraded to a "big boy" status. No crying albeit upon seeing me picking him up@school today but teacher said,"No, wait for your sis!" I managed to calm his almost teary-eye with a smile. So proud of you SE! Oh ya just a slight morning "debate" required to change into his uniform rather than gym set ;)
