Good morning! Can you believe that it is already October? Dare I say that soon it will be time to think about the turkey and the mistletoe?

As you know October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and is a cause that is very close to my heart. If you have read my blog for awhile than you may have seen mention that my mother had breast cancer when she was 36, my cousin had it at 35 and sadly passed at 39, her mother was diagnosed several years later and several of my grandmothers sisters passed from the same disease.
Ladies CANCER is a scary and deadly disease but it can be detected early with monthly self breast exams and yearly mammograms. Yes, they are a little uncomfortable (not painful) but isn’t a few minutes of discomfort worth a little peace of mind?
I urge you to take care of your health as well as the health of your friends and family by encouraging them to get yearly mammograms.
If you would like more information please visit The Edith Sanford Breast Cancer Foundation to learn about the current research and tirals being done, to give a donation of to learn more about prevention.

I hope that you have a great day!
