Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month!
I am placing this pink ribbon on my blog as a reminder to all women to do their monthly breast exam. When I was 26 years old I found a lump in my breast. It wasn't Cancer, but thanks to my self breast exams I knew it was there and if it would have been Cancer, perhaps it would have been caught early enough to help me. I am now getting breast ultrasounds done every 6 months due to more non-cancerous tumors being found on the last ultrasound.
Spread the word about how important of a cause this is! My great-grandma, my great-aunt and one of my dad's cousins has all fought this disease. I know several bloggers who have fought this disease as well. This ribbon is for them and all those who have fought and won. It is also for those have fought and lost their lives. Hopefully in the future there will be a cure for this and all Cancers!
