Think PINK

Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM) is an annual international health campaign organized by major breast cancer charities every October to increase awareness of the disease and to raise funds for research into its cause, prevention and cure. The campaign also offers information and support to those affected by breast cancer. As well as providing a platform for breast cancer charities to raise awareness of their work and of the disease, BCAM is also a prime opportunity to remind women to be breast aware for earlier detection.

My family, along with many others, has been affected by breast cancer. I hope and pray that one day there will be a cure. Early detection is instrumental is saving lives. PLEASE get a mammogram, do regular breast self exams and remind everyone that you love to do the same.

Please take a moment to click the link on my sidebar to donate a mammogram to those that cannot afford it. Help to save someone's life.
