Have you or anyone you know fought the breast cancer battle? I have had aunts and seen patients fight and win/lose this battle. October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month, so in honor of every woman out there who has fought or is fighting this disease, I would like to ask you to do two things.
Last week on The View they talked about an organization called Army of Women. They are looking for a million women of all ages and ethnicities to participate in breast cancer research studies. The goal is to unite women with the researchers to create a movement beyond a cure by creating ways to study breast cancer and how to prevent it. When I signed up the number was around 154,300 women, today it's over 207,000 women. So I challenge each and every woman to sign up and join this organization.
I also would like for you to remember to visit The Breast Cancer Site daily. Not only do they have the cutest pink ribbon attire and accessories, their sponsors donate money based on how many visits they get each month to help fund mammograms for women in need. You can click once a day. This month their main sponsor will also donate an additional 200 mammograms if they reach enough clicks to donate 500 mammograms. It only takes a second! And while you're at it, add their banner to your blog and pass it to your friends. It will help you remember to click once a day and invite others to do the same.
For all those that have lost the battle, for all those that are fighting the battle, and for all those that have won the battle, this is for you!
