Breast Cancer Awareness

I thought I'd take this time to remind everyone that this month is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Please, take some time to click the link below...and then click the big pink button. It costs nothing, takes only a moment of your time, and helps fund mammograms. You could even save a life.

My mother, Cecelia Seibel, died of breast cancer in 1998. She knew she had a lump in her breast, but put off seeing the doctor for fear of pain
(she also had a near-crippling phobia of needles). Had she sought treatment right away...my kids would not have to know their grandmother from photos and stories alone.

I urge all women to check your breasts every month, and report any changes to your doctor. And if you're over 35 or at high risk...get a mammogram, as often as recommended by your physician. My mother was only 44 when she died, and had been fighting cancer for nearly five years. She died only two days after her 44th birthday. 44 is too young to die, ladies. Don't let it happen to you.

Your mother's story breaks my heart. I'm sorry you lost her so soon and that way.

Last year I lost a friend to breast cancer. She was just over 40. Much too young.

I do believe this is something we can beat, but only when we all band together and decide, as women, as humans, to do it. Thanks for getting the word out.

You rock

Wow that´s a great blog that you have there, mine is slightly differnent but it basically covers the same topics.

I have a national cancer institute site. It pretty much covers Cancer related stuff.
