October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and I waited until the second to the last day to write this because I didn’t want to. I don’t want to be aware of breast cancer. I don’t want there to be only one Awareness Month when it should be every month. You see, I lost my mom to breast cancer this year after a 2 year battle that was at many times horrific. She was a wonderful woman that touched the lives of anyone she came into contact with and as sad as I am to no longer have my mom I’m even sadder that my children lost their amazing grandma. Regardless of whether you’re a mom, grandma, aunt, sister, wife, cousin – if you’re a woman please create and follow an early detection plan. It is your best weapon against this terrible disease that takes too many of our loved ones.
