This month...

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and I'm sure we all know of someone who has lived and/or died of this dreaded disease. I lost two special ladies to breast cancer and this year I've had a cousin diagnosed as well the sister of a dear friend. According to reports an estimated 192,000 people in the US will be diagnosed this year. Early detection is a key factor. So if you have a history in your family get tested. While mammograms are uncomfortable, it can save your life. Check out these sites for more information.
