Race for the Cure

This past weekend, I ran in the local Race For The Cure 5K. It was the 7th local race--I've been in each race--and was really great.

Has anyone else walked/run/volunteered in any of the Susan Komen Race for the cure, either as a survivor, as simply because of its importance?

((((((rjsfeminist))))))))) just because.

Have not walked for "the cure", but have gone to benefits for it.

When working met one of the most courageous woman ever. A teacher with so much class. Janet had been diagnosed with breast cancer at a fairly young age. No matter what she went though her strength in carrying on was incredible.

Janet was a recipient of the Susan B Korman foundation Award. For her courage, and work in the breast cancer field.

Janet passed away 3 years ago in Sept. Her family and friends still have functions in her name to help find the cure.

Another friend of mine was diagnosed a year ago. She is doing ok at this time. Keeping an eye for changes etc.

It's a hard battle, a tough battle.

That is why we need to get the message out.

Mammograms are important. Early detection can save YOUR LIFE, or the life of SOMEONE YOU LOVE

If you can't afford a mammogram check out this number 1 800 500 2300

If you put the word Mammograms in search you will find a lot of sites that are helpful.

Click on the Susan B Korman site and oodles of info there. Info on the organization...
BTW It was founded by her sister Nancy so that a cure could be found.

Please please go for your mammograms. YOU are important to yourself, your family, and all those who care about you. DO IT OCTOBER IS BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH! IT COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE.

Signs of breast cancer=

.A lump or thickening in the breast.
.Any sudden change in breast size or shape
. Nipple rash/ an exema type in the nipple area.
. Discharge from the nipple
. Retraction of the nipple.
.Dimpling of the breast
.liquid (puss) leaking from the nipple area.

If you have any of these signs PLEASE see your DOCTOR ASAP.

I care so should you.
Smiles are contagious. It's ok to pass them on. *
