Tis a gift - The Pink Glove Dance

You have to take a look at this YouTube video that was created to raise awareness of breast cancer.  Medline will make a contribution to Providence St.Vincent Medical Center in Portland, Oregon and will be offering free mammograms to their local community. Way to go Emily MacInnes Somers for choreographing and getting so many hospital employees to participate in "The Pink Glove Dance"http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OEdVfyt-mLw
The video is good fun but by the end be prepared to feel emotional. Many of us have been touched by the effects of breast cancer in some form or fashion either directly or through a loved one.
I had my annual physical yesterday and my regular mammogram appointment is next week.

Thank you Carol for posting this. I had my yearly visit 2 months ago and was given a very pretty ball point pin. Everytime I pull it from my purse to use, someone will comment and I remind them to go get that Mamogram. You would be surprised how many women forget to make an appointment and go get one. Semmy
