October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Most of my WHY Wednesdays are complaints and most are silly and in good fun. But this post, this is for real.
I don’t think I know anyone that doesn’t know anyone affected by cancer — breast or otherwise. I know far too many people affected by this horrible disease.
Here’s my plea today. Be aware. Get checked. Take care of yourself. Ensure you are aware.
And if you are so inclined, make a donation to one of the many organizations that look to find a cure for any cancer of your choosing – there are plenty.
Just because October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month doesn’t mean you can’t be aware of all the cancers out there. There are plenty of organizations, including the Susan G. Komen for the Cure and Uniting Against Lung Cancer.
Because the biggest question should be WHY. WHY isn’t there a cure?
Full disclosure: A close friend of mine works for Uniting Against Lung Cancer. I have not been asked to include her organization, and I receive absolutely no incentive for doing so.
I know breast cancer survivors and I have a very dear friend whose mother lost her battle. Both of my ‘poppys’ battled with lung cancer. Eradicating cancer is very close to my heart.
