Breast Cancer Awareness Month...I Love You Mom!
For those of you who know our family, you know that my mom battled breast cancer almost 3 years ago. She had a mastectomy followed by 6 months of chemotherapy and 30 radiation treatments. She is now doing extremely well and is a proud grandmother to Parker. This month is very close to my heart because it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and when I start seeing all the pink ribbons around in the stores it reminds me of how lucky I am to have my mother here! Breast cancer affects thousands of women every year young & old, please remind the women in your family to have their mammograms every year if they are 4o years of age & older. For those of you under 40, remember to do your self breast exams every month! Remember you don't have to have a family history to get this disease, the most common risk factor is just being a woman! Early detection saves lives! Love You Mom! I am so proud of you!
