Jennifer Garner Encourages Women To Get Mammograms In Cute Way

Breast Cancer Awareness Month "Every October I have a standing date". For a mammogram. For me, having the appointment on the books makes it routine, like the dentist. "I know it's scary, sisters, but just do it - the next best thing to an all clear is early detection", she captioned her post.

"You can attend one of the many pink-themed fundraisers this month, all of which benefit the Fiji Cancer Society and assist the wonderful work they do in providing screening, education and support for those in need throughout Fiji", she said.

She commended those already battling the disease with the message: 'To everyone in the thick of the battle-respect and love and strength to you'.

The mother-of-three slipped into a blue smock before filling out some forms with goofy doodles.

In 2013, the Maleficent star revealed in a New York Times op-ed that she had a preventative double mastectomy.

Once it was her turn for the machine, Jen dealt with the temporary discomfort by making amusing faces.

The mutation of the BRCA1 gene, which the actress inherited from her mother, harshly increases the risk of developing breast and ovarian cancer. He and Garner then give the camera a "thumbs up" before the "13 Going on 30" actress performs a celebratory dance.

For every Pink Breast Cancer Awareness ribbon signed in the month of October, Marthaler of Marquette will donate money to the Superior Health Foundation and U.P Pink Power, up to $5,000 total.

Everything looks good here.
