Breast Cancer Quote

On this last Thursday of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I am thankful that my sister-friend of 25 years teamed up with God, sound physicians, and beat the crap out of breast cancer! She is cancer-free and I for one am glad about it!!!

According to the American Cancer Society (ACS), the 5-year relative survival rate of cancer for stages 0 and 1 is 100% and for stage 2, 93%.

Early detection is key!

The ACS recommends annual mammograms for women over the age of 40. If you are over 40 or at higher risk, PLEASEĀ schedule a mammogram today!

    Anytime someone comes through this horrible ordeal, it is huge! I found the best “medicine” is education. I recommend this book to everyone I know and love -Killing Cancer, Not People by Bob Wright.

    Thank you for the recommendation. It’s an awful disease that effects so many of us, including some men, and you’re right education is key. Thankful for hope!
