It is so very important that all of us maintain the health of our breasts. Early detection is the key to survival with this disease. Over the last few years both my best friend's mother and my cousins mother-in-law were diagnosed with Breast Cancer. They are both in remission now and I believe that early detection was key for their survival.
Not all of the stories have a happy ending, unfortunately my "aunt" passed away from this disease as did my close friend's mother. I am sure that if you think about it breast cancer has touched your life too. During this month and every month please honor yourself and care for your breasts. And if you are man this applies to you too -it is rare but men are affected by this disease too.
If you are so inclined you may want to contribute to breast cancer research. Susan G. Komen is the most known organization but there are many others. This year I have contributed to the Boobie-Thon for bloggers that is going on from October 1 - 7th. You may even choose to do a walk or run for breast cancer. Whatever you do just remember pink not only in October but always.
