Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Being a breast cancer survivor myself, I feel very strongly about helping other women learn more about early detection. It’s a scary subject and no one wants to feel vulnerable. But knowledge is power.

We can’t control everything that happens to us but we can do everything within our power to reduce our risks factors as much as possible. We can do self-screening tests and a mammogram when needed. If found early, survival rates are so much greater.

Hopefully, someday soon a cure will be found. More importantly hopefully someday there will be a way to prevent breast cancer so no woman has to go through what I and hundreds of thousands of other survivors and non-survivors have gone through. Knowledge is power and together we can create a brighter future.

So check out these links to get you started on learning all you can. Forward these links to all the women you know so they can gain the knowledge.
