Today marks the beginning of National Breast Cancer Awareness month. This month holds a special place in my heart because of my Mother who lost her battle to this disease almost 6 years ago. This photo is from lynnieb over at Flickr. It showcases so well the truth of this disease which is that One in Seven will be diagnosed with this disease this year and many more will die from it.
Throughout this month I am hoping to focus on info I find about this disease and my families struggles with it and other brave individuals fighting the battle with it .
Please get your mamograms if you are a lady and do your Breast Self Exams . These two things save more lives than anything else and Men remind and encourage the women in your lives to do the same.
One of my goals in the next year is to walk in the Race for the Cure next year and do the Avon 3-day on the 8 th anniversary of my mothers homegoing in 2009.
Please support this cause and all those who struggle with it.
