I am just curious to find out how old all of you were when first being dx'ed with BC (I don't need to know the year, I hate math so I wouldn't try to figure out how old you are now anyway).  It just bothers me that they are still promoting waiting until you are 40 to get a mammo.

I was 29 when I was first dx with BC, 34 with loc reoccurance and 36 with Mets to liver. Good thing I didn't wait till I was 40!

My Onc suggests that my daughter get a mammo five years before I was dx'ed.  She is almost 18 now! Also, I don't know if I have the BRCA gene or not, we are gettng ready to start that process but it scares me to know that I could have passed this to my daughter.

First diagnosed at 44, mets now at 47. Mammograms every year since I was 20, the year my 31 year old sister died of BC. Also have another sister who was diagnosed when she was 38, but is a 22 year survivor and still going strong. We are BRCA - but I am meeting with the genetic team again this week. Apparently, there is a new gene identified they want to test me for. I certainly hope there is something that will spare my daughter from this road!

Mammogram never showed my tumor, but with my family history they took the palpable lump seriously from the start and it showed up on the MRI. We treated my first diagnosis very aggressively, and I intend to fight this new diagnosis with all I have.

I'm not a big believer in "catching it early" at this point. I've been diligent for 27 years, found my tumor myself, and still have mets. Enough with the "awareness" campaign, and let's find a cure!!!!
