Breast Cancer Awareness Month


While we are honoring teachers, let's check our breasts, get our mammograms and persuade others to do the same. Posted by Picasa

What shephard said....bravo, and thankyou...its a major part of why I wrote the story and posted it about my best friend who died of cervical cancer...

All of my grandpa's sisters (6 of them) have had breast cancer. My grandma on the other side died of it at 42. My mother has had three needle biopsies and one lump removed.

Get checked, people.

I also says you can never check your breasts too often. :-) We need to keep pushing awareness- and FREE MAMMOGRAMS for all women!

You know some of my best neighbors are teachers: Mary and Bonnie and Margaret and FC and the list goes on. I like (and agree with) the quote.

Your tips are timely (except you're a day late and a dollar short with the fruit fly one) and the flowers are so season perfect- I love the greens and golds. It's sort of like mixing MSU fans with Michigan fans. :-)

Great message here! Cancer is such an evil beast that has taken so many of my family...

We have something in my area that I think is pretty cool...called "Call a Pal" and once a month, you're signed up to call another woman to make sure she's done her self breast exam. I believe it's run out of Shands Hospital in Gainesville.
BY the way....has anybody here heard from Minerva at A Woman of Many Parts? Her last post was Sept. 11 and she has me concerned about her most recent mamogram.

This is so important. I've seen many items in the stores with the pink ribbons and have chosen them over others. Every little bit helps.

The direct sales company I work for has a "Help Whip Cancer" month every May. In one months time, over a million dollars is raised for the ACS.

Really it's a very important advise!
