What did the ghost say to the bee? BOO BEE!

1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime.  Every 2 minutes, there is a new breast cancer diagnosis.  These are the facts.

But here is another FACT:

When breast cancer has not spread from the the breast the five year survival rate is close to 100%

Mammograms can detect MOST early stages of breast cancer. 

Self-exams are the number one way to detect possible signs of breast cancer.

DO SELF EXAMS. The breast is a beautiful thing (just ask your husband/boyfriend/guy standing next to you right now.) They are soft, they are supple.  FEEL THOSE BABIES UP! DO IT! It may save your live. 

Here is what to look for:
1.  Changes in the look or feel of the breast including lumps
2.  Changes in the look or feel of the nipple
3.  Nipple discharge

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and so many great companies donate proceeds from their sales to research, there are just too many to list.  This fact alone makes me love our nation and proud of humanity.  We have each others backs (and boobies).  I have listed below a few fashion worthy options if you want to help donate to the fight.
