Breast Cancer Awareness

My sister was 32 years old when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She noticed that her nipples were bleeding and went to her doctor. After many tests and surgery, she found out it was cancer. She had a mastectomy and her lymph nodes taken out. She went through months of chemo and now has been cancer free for 2 years. Thank goodness she went to the doctor. Even though I am only 30, I now have mammograms every year.

Everybody knows that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. So in honor or memory of anyone that you know who has had breast cancer make a donation at the Susan G Komen website. Also you can Race for the Cure. You can find out if your city is hosting a race here.
