And then there are all the doctors, nurses, support staff, and other patients I've met along the way who are positive and caring and always wearing a smile and asking how I am. I mean, that has got to get old for the clinicians who are dealing with disease every work day, over and over again. But they never seem to waiver from their positive attitudes.
So the only way I think we can bust down the walls of cancer is to fight it together. AND FIRST AND FOREMOST, is by early detection by breast self-exam and annual mammograms. Next on my priority list would be to find a cure.
But a very important step is by supporting each other and also by supporting many of the wonderful organizations out there doing so much for research and providing resources. By attending Relay for Life events, and other such events that not only raise funds, but also provide a supportive environment for survivors and their families, or families of those who have lost the battle.
So join me in checking out and hopefully supporting one of these wonderful organizations during this month of October, Breast Cancer Awareness month ~ Savethetatas.org and Savethetatas.com.
And did I mention, I've been invited to be a guest blogger at www.savethetatas.org, a special group which commits 5% of every sale to the Save the ta-tas® Foundation. This includes any product sold on savethetatas.com, at any of their authorized retailers and all of their licensed goods. This special group calculates their donations by the actual sale price, not the profits made. From 2004 – 2010 this translated to roughly 50% of their profits. Click here to learn more about the group.
