Show Your Support-Grab A Badge!
I recently came across these awesome Breast Cancer Awareness buttons at Blogaholic Designs, and being that Breast Cancer Awareness month is here now, I had to show my support with these amazing buttons that Emily created. These buttons directly link to the Susan G. Komen For The Cure website. Stop over there and see how you can show your support to help find a cure for Breast Cancer Awareness. You can share your story if you know someone who has breast cancer or had it.
My family has been touched by Breast Cancer before, so know how extremely important it is to have your annual mammograms usually beginning at the age 40, or as otherwise directed by your doctor. Don't forget each month to do your monthly breast checks also. You can do it in the shower, or laying in bed, or where ever you are comfortable. It only takes a few minutes, and could help save a life.
If you feel something that is uncomfortable, or a lump that wasn't there before, get to your doctor and have him or her examine you. If your doctor tells you that there is nothing to worry about and you don't feel comfortable with their decision, you can ask for a mammogram to be done. I would rather have a bill to pay, then breast cancer to beat which could have been detected earlier had I had it checked out.
I have a friend who is battling breast cancer right now, and let me tell you this gal is simply amazing, and has such a positive attitude. I don't know if I could handle it the way she has had t been me. She is determined to beat this, and has a wonderful family, and all of her friends supporting her throughout this tough time in her life. Feel free to check her journey with breast cancer out at Becky Beats BC. You can see just how of an amazing woman Becky is, and how she is dealing with breast cancer. Feel free to show support while your their by leaving a comment for her. I know that all of the support she gets really lifts her up.
Thanks again to Emily for the terrific buttons she has made. I have seen them on plenty of blogs so far. Grab one and show your support today !! Check out her other buttons, and her blog designs while your there. She does some amazing work!!
Support the cause !!!
