Are you aware...

that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month?  Well, it IS in case you were confused.  About a week ago, I  added a new badge to my sidebar stating as such...

Breast cancer has special meaning in my life...  My mom is a survivor.  I was actually born AFTER her radical mastectomy...even more shocking was that I was born within that critical 5 year window.  My parents met AFTER mom's cancer.

All that being said...  Be aware of your "girls"...know your body... something seems odd...get it checked!!
I had my first mammogram at age 26 as a baseline... Nothing to be afraid of. Take charge of your health, of your body...it's the only one you have!

I will now step down off my soap box and return you to your regularly scheduled programing...thank you and good night.

You sound good "on your soapbox." And, you are right! No one is immune and no one it too young to get this!
Thanks for sharing your soapbox.
