What is Breast Cancer?
tissue in the woman’s breast, or a lump. The majority of lumps are not
cancerous; however, women should get them checked by a health care
professional. Medical News Today
What can you do about it?
Susan G. Koman says, “You may be a runner. A volunteer. Or an activist. But however you choose to get involved, just know that everything you do makes a difference. After all, without the support of people like you, we know 10 million people could die of breast cancer in the next 25 years….Breast cancer is still killing and impacting far too many of our loved ones. So, how will you get involved?”
I mentioned in a prior Monday Matters post, you can click a day for free to fund mammograms for woman in need at the Greater Good.
As you know by now, if I have to shop, I LOVE to shop for a cause! You can purchase all the cutest pink gear and purchase with a purpose at ShopKoman.com
Susan G. Komen for the Cure® strives to raise funds and educate people in the battle against breast cancer through global events and legislative actions each year. There are many ways to get involved.
More ways you can help through the National Breast Cancer Association where your support will help provide mammograms, education and support services to women in need.
Do you have an early detection plan?

Also, I’ve mentioned her a million times, but she’s so inspiring: The author of the Cancer Slayer Chronicles, is a breast cancer survivor and now blogs at Green Tea & Chocolate sharing delicious cancer fighting foods we should all be eating to stay healthy.

Great information. My mother was just diagnosed with breast cancer almost 2 months ago.
Oh, she'll be in my prayers! My MIL went through it and thankfully became a survivor. Very hard times, but hoping for the best for your mom!
