THINK PINK


October is National Breast Cancer Month. I'm sure we all know someone who is suffering from or has survived this terrible disease. As you can see on the image on the left, breast cancer affects men as well as women so we're all at risk.

"Breast cancer may be one of the oldest known forms of cancer tumors in humans. The oldest description of cancer ....... discovered in Egypt and dates back to approximately 1600 BC." ....... In the United States, breast cancer is the third most common cause of cancer death (after lung cancer and colon cancer). In 2007, breast cancer is expected to cause 40,910 deaths (7% of cancer deaths; almost 2% of all deaths) in the U.S.{from "breast cancer" in Wikipedia}.

So go to a rally, enter a race or fundraiser,put a pink ribbon on your car or person and for goodness sakes check your boobs for lumps and bumps and such {if you need instructions for a self-check, here they are).

Even more fun, get someone else to massage your titties for you! At the least it could lead to a little lovin' and at the worse you might catch the "Big C" before it gets too far along to correct.

Hi Junebugg,

I ran across your post and thought I should tell you and all your readers about our breast cancer awareness fundraiser:

For every new caller who uses 1-800-Free411 during the month of October, we'll donate one dollar (up to $25K) to the National Breast Cancer Coalition Fund. For all the details and links to health information, visit us at www.free411.com/pink

Thanks,
Paul

Paul, glad to do my bit for the cause. It's a shame how many women don't find out about their lumps until it's too late.
