Today my aunt is doing fine...I'm excited that I get to see her at Christmas this year! Though I don't call her or email her as much as I should, I am always thinking of her. I wear a small pink band on my finger each and every day as a reminder of her strength and her courage.
Did you know that 1 out of every 7 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime? Despite that number this is a disease that CAN be beat, but it must be detected early. Let's also not forget, this disease affects men too. No one is immune. Self breast examinations (and I'm mainly talking to all the ladies out there) are a very important step in early detection. Be aware of your body and notice changes. This is a huge must ladies. A doctor who examines you once a year is not going to be a good judge of change. Monthly self breast exams are recommended, I mean how hard is that??? Isn't your life and not to mention those great tatas worth it? :)
So, in honor of my aunt and of breast cancer awareness month, I am hosting another giveaway!!! One lucky reader will receive this 100% polyester microfiber bag:
