One of the things I am passionate about is doing whatever I can to promote knowledge and awareness of breast health and cancer prevention. Cancer (especially breast cancer) has touched the lives of my immediate family and several close friends.
I coordinate (along with 4 other “fabulous” women) an annual fundraiser luncheon which joins survivors, friends, and family for an afternoon of hope and sharing. We just had our annual luncheon in August, and we raised thousands of dollars for The American Cancer Society.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. You’ve probably already known about this, saw a banner in a blog, received a note from a friend, participated in a walk or run, or any of the many other ways the word is passed.
From one woman blogger to another, I encourage you to acknowledge this month in your own way.
Visit The Breast Cancer Site and click to provide needed mammography services to others.
If you don’t know how, or just haven’t done it lately, perform a breast self exam.
Remind a mother, sister, aunt, or friend to schedule their yearly mammogram.
Provide a donation to the American Cancer Society
No matter what you do, just do it!
If we all did one thing to focus attention on the issue of breast cancer… imagine what could be possible.
