Producer Angie Gets Her First Mammogram

During the month of October, AMP Radio, along with countless other organizations, is putting a spotlight on breast cancer awareness.

Our Pink for October campaign has been a huge success. Just last week, we raised tons of money for the Young Survival Coalition charity at our We Can Survive benefit concert with Katy Perry and friends.

But this cause means so much more than just one big night. The disease has hit close to home right here at the AMP morning show.

Carson’s mother is a breast cancer survivor and Producer Angie had a scare of her own when her doctor found a lump earlier this year.

Luckily, the lump was benign, but the discovery motivated Angie to undergo her first mammogram this week. She described the experience earlier today.

“I was a little nervous about it never having one,” she explained. “It’s so easy, it’s quick, it’s simple, it’s not painful.”

“Even in the last decade, there’s been so many medical advancements. It’s not a death sentence,” Carson added. “Early detection is certainly the key.”

Doctors recommend you begin getting mammograms at age 40 if you have never had a lump before and don’t have any family history.
