Be Aware!-Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Since this is Breast Cancer Awareness month I thought I'd put out a reminder to all women out there to have a screening done, and men too! This disease does not discriminate between the sexes, age, race or otherwise! The statistics show that approximately 1 in 4 women will develop breast cancer. In 2008, the expected number of new cases of invasive breast cancer in women is 182,480, and about 1,990 men will be diagnosed with the disease. If you'd like to view some staggering statistics, click HERE to visit this webpage.....I found this to be a very sobering article.

There are MANY places to obtain information about how to donate to the cause or to participate in the thousands of events being held in every state. You can find information on the internet, in the newspaper and even your local shopping centers and grocery chains. PLEASE remember to get your screening done and donate when you can!
