“Several years ago, my best friend was diagnosed with breast cancer at a very young age. Her experience gave me the courage to raise awareness about breast cancer. I encourage women to get their annual mammograms and to talk with their doctors if they feel something isn’t right. Never discount your instinct. Early detection through mammography can save lives.
“I’m an advocate and fundraiser for breast cancer in hopes to one day find a cure. I want to keep my daughter and her generation safe from this disease.” – Denise Wotton, Owner of High Performance Hair & Tanning and her daughter, Taylor
