Breast Cancer Awareness Month

21 Oct

Millions each year are diagnosed with breast cancer. Every day, women (and men) have to break the news to their spouses, children and families that they have been diagnosed with cancer. The word alone makes you shutter…Cancer…

Being breast cancer awareness month, this issue is brought a little closer to our every day lives through media and fund raisers. But for some, it is an every day reality.

On August 30, my cousin turned 40. After having her first mammogram, an ultrasound and a biopsy, her doctor told her she has breast cancer. My cousin is a strong woman, the cancer was caught early and she is very optimistic. Please pray for her, her husband and her 2 year old son.

And Please, if you are 40 or older, Please go get a mammogram, it could save your life!
