Unless you live under a rock you are all aware that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Breast Cancer is close to my heart as I have known many people who have been affected by the horrible disease. In February 2010, I am running the Donna Half-Marathon (with Morgan!!!) to support breast cancer. 100% of the race proceeds go to breast cancer research.
I do not want to overdose you with statistics that you can read anywhere. I do however, want to share a few things to spread awareness.
This is my favorite shirt in reference to breast cancer.
I love this one too
For you readers; two Pay It Forward requests:
-Please take a few moments, if you don’t already, and check yourself. Then tell five people and ask them to tell five people. Think about the people you can reach by just telling five people!
-Spread your own message: write you own blog entry about Breast Cancer or post some pictures or if you don’t want to do your own, feel free to link people here. Please…just get the message out.
This post is in honor of my grandmother, a two time breast cancer survivor (1975 &1984). She turned 86 last month. Here she is with me soon after I was born in 1981.
What are some ways breast cancer has touched your life? How are you spreading awareness?
