Dedicated to Breast Cancer Survivors and Victims

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Women are encouraged to do self-exams and have mammograms.  I’d like to dedicate this article to my mother and all others like her who are or were diagnosed with breast cancer and have courageously looked breast cancer in the face with a positive attitude and fought the fight without complaint, and won.  I’d also like to take a moment to remember those who lost the battle.

But the war rages on.  I urge you to do what you can, wherever you can to support organizations that are doing research to find a cure.  Let’s not just make it a snappy slogan–let’s make it happen!  I love you, mom.

Your Future is in Your Hands
Many of the habits you form today can influence your risk of developing breast and ovarian cancer in the future. So from now forward, commit to:

  • A low-fat diet
  • Maintaining a healthy weight
  • Limiting or eliminating alcohol consumption
  • Regular exercise
