Breast Cancer Awareness Month

This is your friendly reminder that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Because of the nature of my employment, I see a lot of ladies with Breast Cancer. Every lady(and men too, although not nearly as often) is at risk for Breast Cancer. Ladies remember to check yourself regularly. And if you're of age, then have that Mammogram every year. I get it, it's not fun, and it's totally uncomfortable. But, it beats the alternative. Trust me. Breast Cancer affects all of us in some fashion or another. Just make sure you know your status.

And if you happen to have an Otic Spunkmeyer near you, then you can help support Breast Cancer research by having a cookie. Seriously, it's that easy. I had one yesterday and they are amazing. Locally our Zaxby's carry them. Have some chocolate and help a lady.

Definitely sending out prayers for everyone dealing with breast cancer! And it is also National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month, with October 15th specifically being Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day. This is a great resource:

Thanks for the reminder Nikki! My aunt beat breast cancer once but was not able to the second time... My prayers are sent up daily for those dealing with this and I appreciate your support as well!
