breast cancer awareness month

It's breast cancer awareness month. I have been thinking about breast cancer lately. Maybe it's because Kyle has been working with a surgeon who does a lot of breast reconstruction after her patients have lost a breast, or two to cancer. Maybe it's because I'm a woman and can't imagine being in that situation. Maybe it's because I'm a mommy and can't even think about if someone else had to raise my kids. I don't know, but this video is amazing. To feel the emotions and see the strength that these women find... wow.

Have you done your self exam lately?

2 tellin' me what I want to hear!:

I have mine scheduled!

In our sorority, out of 20 ladies, four had some form of breast cancer! So, that made us all aware of the need to be checked. We decided to have an annual "Bunko" fund raiser where the monies that are raised go into a fund at our local hospital to pay for mammograms for women who can't afford to pay for one! In the last two years since we started, we have raised about $1,000.00!
