I believe that there will be a cure for some kind of cancer within my lifetime. As a two time survivor, I can tell you that early detection means a longer life. It was an article in GQ, believe it or not, that got me thinking I might be really sick.
Sometimes the information you need turns up in the strangest places.
Today is the start of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Statistics say that 1 in 8 women will get the disease. And lest you think that this is a woman’s issue, I will tell you that whole families are impacted by cancer, wherever and in whomever a tumour is found.
But together, we will make a difference.
If you have a loved one or friend who is fighting against the disease, let them know that you’ve got their back so that they can continue to fight to the front with everything they’ve got.
Get checked by a doctor. Do not delay.
Talk to your children.
Remind your friends.
Share your story.
Raise awareness, even if it’s just by wearing a bit of pink today.
