Ok - so here goes my little public service announcement for all the women that I love and care for in my life and for those women reading this that I don't know but still care about.
Breast cancer is a disease that unnecessarily takes the lives of a lot of women. It can so easily be caught in the early stages and treated with a full recovery.
Being aware of the disease and taking steps to protect yourself is not very time consuming and easy.
Please do a breast self exam monthly. If you aren't sure how to do one either google it on the internet or ask your doctor. Also - go for a yearly mammogram after you turn 40. I've had my mammogram this year - in fact I had it yesterday. They are not horrible at all! It's quick, easy and PAINLESS!!!
Please love yourself!!
