Breast Cancer Awareness

As I am waiting for my mother to get out of surgery I wanted to remind everyone to do your monthly self check and to do your yearly screening. My mother was diagnosed with breast cancer on Valentine's Day after her yearly mammogram showed a small tumor. The doctor's said the tumor was small and it was caught very early. My mother was NOT going to go to her exam this year but after some pushing from me she decided to go and we are all so lucky she did. I have linked the image below to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. If you are ever in a position to support breast cancer research please do, they provide free screening and grants for cancer treatment to those who can't afford it.
