Take charge of your health by performing routine breast self-exams and scheduling regular mammograms. Having trouble remembering how often you should do these? You're not alone, but there's an easy way to remember. As part of Procter & Gamble's (P&G) partnership with the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc., the GIVE HOPE program seeks to educate women about breast cancer and the importance of early detection in hopes of saving lives.
