SCCU Breast Cancer Awareness Initiative

Space Coast Credit Union Members remains on track with Watchdog SCCU’s vision and promise to protect members in all aspects of their financial lives using their people, products and practices.  I am proud to be a social media influencer and share my experiences with brands like SCCU who joins the effort to fight breast cancer and save lives. Honestly, I had not had a mammogram for more than 8 years and was so relieved and grateful that SSCU treated me and my sister to a free exam. We are waiting for the results and pray they are negative. Will keep you posted probably with a tweet okis!

Yolanda Medina, branch manager in Coral Gables who has been with Space Coast Credit Union since 1997 was present at the Ambulatory Diagnostic Center and greeted each one of the influencers attending. Yolanda thanked us for being there and talked about how meaningful the SCCU initiative was for her as a mother of two daughters. Please visit SCCU Tribute Wall and help them reach 7,000 comments so they donate $7,000 to the Florida Breast Cancer Foundation.

As a refresh for all of us to know:

  • A mammogram is an x-ray picture of the breast.
  • A mammogram can be used to check for breast cancer in women who have no signs or symptoms of the disease. This type of mammogram is called a screening mammogram.
  • A mammogram can also be used to check for breast cancer after a lump or other sign or symptom of the disease has been found. This type of mammogram is called a diagnostic mammogram.

I want to give a shout-out to the technician, Edith who performed my test and was  gentle and very kind. Thankful for this wonderful experience made possible by the awesome team at Nevarez PR!
