THINK PINK

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

In honor of those we've lost to breast cancer, those who've survived breast cancer and those who are currently fighting against breast cancer, I support you with my donations for the cure.

Today I thought pink and decided to wear this for you.





Ladies I urge you to save your Ta-Tas by knowing the facts about breast cancer!

*The following information was taken from the SUSAN G. KOMEN website*

Except for skin cancers, breast cancer is the most common cancer in women, but it can be successfully treated. Screening tests can find cancer early, when it’s most treatable.


Susan G. Komen for the Cure® recommends that you:


1. Know your risk

•Talk to your family to learn about your family health history


•Talk to your provider about your personal risk of breast cancer


2. Get screened

•Ask your doctor which screening tests are right for you if you are at a higher risk


•Have a mammogram every year starting at age 40 if you are at average risk


•Have a clinical breast exam at least every 3 years starting at age 20, and every year starting at age 40


3. Know what is normal for you


See your health care provider if you notice any of these breast changes:

•Lump, hard knot or thickening inside the breast or underarm area


•Swelling, warmth, redness or darkening of the breast


•Change in the size or shape of the breast


•Dimpling or puckering of the skin


•Itchy, scaly sore or rash on the nipple


•Pulling in of your nipple or other parts of the breast


•Nipple discharge that starts suddenly


•New pain in one spot that doesn’t go away


4. Make healthy lifestyle choices

•Maintain a healthy weight


•Add exercise into your routine


•Limit alcohol intake


•Limit postmenopausal hormone use


•Breastfeed, if you can



Getting regular screening tests is the best way for women to lower their risk of dying from breast cancer. Screening tests can find breast cancer early, when it's most treatable.
