Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Hey Guys,

So this is a kind of PSA type of post today. I wanted to bring up the topic of Breast Cancer and Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers that kill womean anual besides skin cancer. So in October, which is known for Halloween, it was named a month dedicated to spreading awareness of breast cancer. During this month, many different charities are held like Race for the Cure and Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Both starting in the United States and going global for everyone to help find a cure for breast cancer.

Please, if you are a women that is reading my blog, please please please get a mammogram. If you can't get a mammogram, the alternative best way would be a self examination. Either in the shower or in front of a mirror. Feel your breast; use your left hand to feel your right breast and the right hand to feel your left breast. This self examination can be used for both men and women.

Remember, early discovery of breast cancer is key and gives the most amount of choices for treatment.

rah rah,
