Breast Cancer Announced

Talk radio host, Laura Ingraham, was diagnosed with breast cancer today.

Ms. Ingraham was not on the air this morning and called her own show to make the announcement herself. She called the morning's fill-in host, Rep. J.D. Hayworth, R-Ariz., directly from the hospital.

She says the tumor was not visible on the mammogram and was detected in a physical breast exam by her OB/GYN. Ms Ingraham further states she had not had an exam in more than three years which says Ingraham was "really stupid."

Please, please, please!!! Ladies do the breast exam regularly. Either by yourself or with your partner, but do it. Early detection can save your life and spare your loved ones a great deal of sorrow.

And gentlemen, you are not immune to the ravages of breast cancer. Men die from BC the same as women, only in fewer numbers. The same exam recommended for women will also save your life.

Let's all examine our breasts and those of our partners tonight. Whether or not we find tumors, it will be worth the extra time and attention.

The life of Indigo Red is full of adventure. Tune in next time for the Further Adventures of Indigo Red.
