As October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Sheryl Crow encourages women to get their annual mammograms

Sheryl Crow is a phenomenal person in every single way. Not only is she a Grammy award-winner, nature-lover, activist, mom and all-around kind person, she is also a breast cancer survivor who wants to help people know that early detection is key for defeating breast cancer. This is even more relevant in October, as this is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Sheryl Crow just released her 11th album Threads at the end of this summer. This album is a little different as it is all about musical collaboration. She performs along with greats such as Stevie Nicks, Johnny Cash, Bonnie Raitt, Chris Stapleton, Eric Clapton, Sting, Emmylou Harris and many more.

She says that this will likely be her last album but promises to continue making music.

Sheryl Crow is a breast cancer survivor and she is considered to be cancer-free now, but she still tries to help out in any way she can. In fact, she always carries on a candid dialogue with her female fanbase. Another way she helps is by encouraging women to get yearly mammograms from 40-years-old on. She wants women to “Mam Up!”

Dr. Jessica Shepherd, an OB/GYN who practices at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas, TX who is an expert in regards to women’s health has some important information to share on this important topic.

Sheryl Crow, who was joined by Dr. Jessica Shepherd to discuss the ins and outs of breast cancer spoke to Michelle Tompkins from The Hollywood Digest about her life, her process for writing songs, why Threads will likely be her last album, what she is doing with her kids for fun, what women should do to protect themselves from breast cancer, why she decided to get screened at 40, what Hologic is doing to help, what advice she has for women and more.
