Today is October first and begins National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Last year, I wrote about two people in my life that are survivors of this nasty disease. Unfortunately, not everyone diagnosed with Breast Cancer is that lucky. Many brave women lose their battle with this beast.
Below, in the middle, is my friend Debra. She is a fellow Disney fanatic that I spent time with at BlogHer in August.
Debra (A Frugal Friend) lost her mother to breast cancer almost five years ago. In her memory, Debra is hosting her 2nd Annual Breast Cancer Awareness Event . To find out more about the event please click on the button below.
I hope you will join me in supporting Debra’s event in honor of those that have had their lives forever changed by Breast Cancer.
Please remember to check your breasts every month, or remind the women in your life to do so. Don’t put off having your yearly mammogram and be sure to have a baseline done when your doctor recommends it if you have never had one before. Early detection is key!
My question to you this week:
Do you know someone that has battled Breast Cancer? Please take a moment to leave a shout out in their honor.
Thanks to Kailani at An Island Life for starting this fun for Friday. Please be sure to head over to her blog to say hello and sign the linky there if you are participating.
