Breast Cancer Awareness Month
As most of you know October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. I know there are a lot of stories on television and in newspapers of women's heartbreaking, but encouraging stories of survival in the battle with breast cancer. I strongly encourage you to check out Lifetime's original movie: Five. It'll make you laugh, it'll make you cry, but most of all it will make you think. Think about how monthly self checks and yearly mammograms after the age of 40 could save your life. To think of all the pain and heartache you can save your loved ones by taking those 2 simple steps. So talk to your daughters, your mothers, your sisters and make a pact to not only take care of yourself, but to take care of each other.
