A NEW Haw author who overcame breast cancer is hoping her new book will encourage more women to go for potentially life-saving mammograms.
Avril Saunders, 63, was diagnosed with breast cancer in March last year following a routine mammogram.
She said the quick diagnosis was the reason she could now look forward to spending many years spoiling her grandchildren.
Her book, Mammograms Save Lives, dealing with what she went through, was published on Thursday (February 23).
Avril Saunders is the author of 'Chasin’ That Carrot' and her newly released book 'Mammograms Save Lives'
