Breast Cancer Awareness Month
« on: October 17, 2011, 04:34:02 AM »
Just a Reminder....It's Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  I lost my sister due to a delayed mammogram.  By the time "she had time" to go for her exam (which she had put off, as so many of us do, myself included - shame on me), she was stage 3, borderline stage 4.  She fought hard for several years, but eventually lost her fight to this disease.  I think all things considered, anyone who hasn't had one recently, should make a point to do so now, don't you??  Please.....???  Think Pink!!!
