Elizabeth Massa Peroulakis
In October of 2015 I had breast surgery. I learned a little too late that I was able to have a mammogram without my doctor’s referral. I had my annual physical with a new doctor at the Hilltown Community Health Center at which she performed a breast exam and found “rice like “foreign matter in my left breast. She sent me to have my first mammogram at 44 and it came back positive in my left breast. I am luckily living a healthy life from that point forward. The experience opened my eyes to the wonderful support network and general positivity and amazing people that help all who have experienced this. I speak at awareness events including supporting #crucialcatch, the NFL #gopink program to raise awareness for mammograms. I started a hiking group two years ago, Western Mass Hilltown Hikers, and do charity hikes and walks with them too. I continue on a regular basis helping others through networking in the Hilltowns and spread the news everywhere I go including telling my story at public events and attending area 5K events like Rugged Maniac and car shows and photo shoots and other fundraising events. I was invited to attend the Patriots/NY Jets pink football game and perform in the opening ceremonies, I did this only three days after my surgery, it was one of the best events of my life! So I believe in the cause and I live the cause.
