Make 'Mammograms Save Lives' a catchphrase

Author Avril Saunders hopes her new book will encourage women to have regular breast checks.
'Mammograms Save Lives', soon to be released book, based on author's experience following breast cancer diagnosis.

A New Haw woman is encouraging people to have a regular check for breast cancer after her life-changing experiences inspired her new book. Avril Saunders, 63, went for a routine mammogram in March and was diagnosed with breast cancer but was able to fully recover because it was caught early. As a result she has written a book called Mammograms Save Lives about her experiences.

Author Avril Saunders said “When this happened in March I realised how my whole life changed and I thought the best way to help others was to put it down in writing. It is wonderful to have my life back again, and live life to the full. Everything is back to normal all thanks to a mammogram.”
