Think Pink This October

Hello Friends. This is my friendly reminder to do a breast self examination. Not just the ladies but men also. October is Breast Cancer awareness month but checking yourself regularly should be as much of your routine as trimming your nails or getting your hair cut. Just do it. If you find anything that has changed make sure you talk to your doctor or nurse practitioner.

The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation of Ontario has an excellent website to provide you with information about reducing your risk, screening and what to expect. Spend a few minutes educating yourself about breast cancer as early detection dramatically increases survival rate.

To my friends that are fighting this battle right now know that you beat this. Whether it is your first battle or your fifth I know you can do it.
