Think Pink...


Check out the American Cancer Society's website for information about the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks this month... there could be one in your state or even in your own town!

And if you can't participate in Making Strides... at least be sure that you (if you are female) get in for your mammogram!! And tell your mother, sister, grandmother, friend... or any other female you care about, to do the same. We've got to be aware that this disease affects 1 out of 8 women.

Prevention has to be the key until a cure is found!

writing about breast cancer is so important! here is another site i found about it:

This week kicks-off National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Share the life-saving message about early detection through mammography with all the women you know and love. Send them to www.imagesofhealth.com to MAKE A PLEDGE to get a mammogram and join in our fight against breast cancer.

Thanks for visiting today and especially for this post.
As you probably know, most of my posts this month will be about Breast Cancer Awareness.

Yes - I will do my self-check this month unfortunately, being under 40 - no mammogram yet for me - at least insurance wouldn't pay for it....and I think this is wrong. I think that every woman under 40 should have it done every 5 years (25,30, 35) - because every woman gets breast cancer - even young ones!!!
