On a personal level - Breast Cancer Awareness Month means a lot to me. Three years ago, just as October was starting, my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer. The irony of her being diagnosed with stage 2, grade 3 cancer during "awareness" month certainly wasn't lost on me.
I stood by my mom as she soldiered through three lumpectomies...and ultimately a mastectomy. Following that was radiation and chemotherapy, in a dose so strong that it put her in the hospital for a week with a pulmonary embolism. She never once complained! I'm so happy that she's come out the other side with a clean bill of health!
My request to you - PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE get your yearly mammogram and do your monthly self-check. Especially if you're high risk. I want you all around for a long, long, time.
This year's giveaway: A KitchenAid grater, aroma therapy eye mask, Bath & BodyWorks lotion and Burt's Bee's lip balm.
