Most women get their first mammogram when they turn 40.

Lora Howard of Seymour started getting hers much earlier.

That’s because her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer when Howard was just a kid.

“At age 30, I started getting regular mammograms,” said the 44-year-old Howard. “Dr. Alice Hartman knew my family history and thought it was a good idea.”
