Pink for October
Thanks to Mom-101 for the tips on how to change my template to make it PINK for OCTOBER (Breast Cancer Awareness Month)! Of course, I've only been able to figure out how to make the *border* pink, but the intent is there.
My grandmother had a breast removed due to breast cancer, and I discovered my first breast lump shortly thereafter (I was 18). Fortunately mine ended up being due to fibrocystic breasts (which makes monthly self-exams and annual exams by a physician especially important). I had a baseline mammogram done when I was 30.
Do what you can to take care of yourselves, ladies. And do what you can to support the research to conquer this disease. We've lost too many women to it. mk
