Save the TaTa's. I Love Boobies. Save Second Base. No matter how you phrase it or wear it, its all about one thing: Breast Cancer Awareness
It was September 28, 2008 when I first discovered the lump in my right breast that I would soon find out was malignant. I had seen a commercial about Breast Cancer Awareness and how important it was to do self check exams and if you were 40 or over to have a mammogram. The truth is I hadn't had a mammogram in 5 years but I had this nagging feeling to do a self check after seeing that commercial. I would schedule a mammogram and then forget about it (because they don't call and remind you of your appointment) but I did keep having that nagging feeling that I needed to get a mammogram scheduled even though I had done self checks and gone for yearly exams. I think God was trying to tell me all along but I kept putting it off. It's that time of year for Breast Cancer Awareness, please make sure you and your loved ones are checked out. The important thing is early detection, I also want to point out that it's labeled as a woman's disease but more and more men are being diagnosed with Breast Cancer each year. By the Grace of God and your support I am finally seeing light at the end of the tunnel. It's been a long journey but I am stronger and a better person for going through it. Thank you for coming along with me through this journey!
What will you do to join in the cause against breast cancer? Support? Educate? Promote awareness?
*At 6:45 p.m. on 10/20/2010 a very dear friend's mother will be undergoing a breast biopsy to examine two lumps that were just found last week. The mother has a history of breast cancer in her family and has had her mammograms regularly. Please keep this family in your thoughts and prayers.
