Claudia Bennett was 45 years old when she got her first mammogram. As a woman working in a time-consuming and demanding job in the health care industry, she barely had time to fit the test into her busy schedule.
It was January 2001, and she was a radiation therapist at Wenatchee Valley Clinic.
“They had everything right there to do the mammogram, so I just ran over on my break and had it done,” she said.
With no history of breast cancer in her family, she was shocked by the results.
