Yes, it is November. Enough of the October "Pink". That doesn't mean we forget and still do things for breast cancer, but we need to go on. The "Pink" obviously works as if you saw GMA this morning, Amy was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. This was her first ever mammogram and she did it in October to go along with the "Pink" campaign. 

1. Do you have Thanksgiving plans yet?

2. What is your favorite side dish for Thanksgiving?

3. What is your favorite dessert for Thanksgiving (trying to get ideas as we were invited to a friends home and was asked to bring dessert)?

I know a woman so afraid of finding out the truth, she didn't have a mammo until age 48.  He husband is a doctor.  I believe cancerphobia is a very real phenomenon.

I don't find it uncommon for someone not to go to the dr. My father never went until it was too late.

Wow.  I'm so sorry.  Something to learn from.

The segment where she had a mammogram, was an assignment scheduled for the month of October. I have watched both, why would you claim otherwise?

I don't think it was staged.  I thought there might have been the possibility that they were exaggerating it or putting a spin on it.  After reading the article, I'm less inclined to think that.

I don't find that uncommon either - but that isn't the same thing as lack of discussions with her doctor.

Yes it WAS for October for Pink. It was her FIRST mammogram as she said she had been putting it off and Robin encouraged her to do it on air. 

And? I have said this a few times.

Yes, you needed to read the article to actually believe it. Why? Did you not believe me?

I didn't hear that she was even going to a dr. either. Also, if she was, that does not mean that she actually listened and made an appointment, which obviously she did not.
