LELAND, NC (WECT) -

Terry Holden says she never thought about doing a breast self exam until she saw a WECT Pink Pack segment one evening on the news.

During one of our recent Fran's collections at the Walmart in Leland, Terry told WECT's Frances Weller the segment saved her life.

"I never really thought about it until you (Frances Weller) came out and said to do them," Holden said.

Shortly after doing her first self exam, she felt a lump. "I ended up with three tumors," added Holden.

Terry is now on the road to recovery but encourages all women to do their monthly exams. She says the monthly WECT reminder, sponsored by New Hanover Regional Medical Center is the reason she's alive.

"I credit it 100%," stated Holden.
