Thanks for keeping the awareness going! Early detection is the key (as with most diseases) & I am personally greateful to the advances made in treating this awful disease.

Gee, thanks, Bear. I'm honored that you feel that way. If we all stick together and get the word out...lives will be saved. Thanks for the linky love. :-)

Thanks for the reminder. It will be time for my annual exams soon. My mother is a breast cancer survivor (with breasts intact) because they caught it early. I am assiduous in making sure about getting my tests and exams and wish others would be, too. If you have financial problems, help is available. In our area, there is something called the Pink Ribbon Project that helps low-income women with the cost of the tests so there's no reason to avoid them. Early detection is the key.

Thanks Bear...I'm all caught up with my mammogram. One of my very best friends is going through radiation treatments from breast cancer right now, so I'm well aware of how important this reminder is.
