It's been a long time since I participated in Pink Saturday, sponsored by Beverly of How Sweet the Sound. However, I found this little treasure recently at Goodwill for pennies, and wanted to share it with you. It goes well with all of my other pink floral plates, but this one is smaller.
And now for the most important part of my post! October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Please do your self exams in the shower.
And schedule a mammogram if you haven't yet.
They really aren't as bad as women think. I have only felt a little pressure on my breasts, no actual pain.
If you are over 40 years old and need a mammogram or Pap test and you are within 200% of poverty level, have no insurance, Medicaid or Medicare, you may be eligible for free exams. Please call your local health department and ask about the Breast and Cervical Cancer Project. There may be a waiting list, but if you have a family history of any breast or cervical cancers, you will be able to get in more quickly.
I have my exams on November 10. When you click on my button in the right hand column, it really does go to help a woman get her exams and stay healthy. I am one of them!
This is being posted today in honor of my cousin Wendy who died of breast cancer years ago, my Aunt June and Aunt Tiny who were survivors, and my dear friend Carol Jean who passed away just last month from a 6 year battle with breast cancer.
You can find this sweet angel pin on the Cancer Society's website. I thought she was perfect for remembering those brave women.
What are you waiting for? Call your doctor's office and get scheduled today! After all, we want you around for many, many more Pink Saturdays!
