October ~ Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Giveaway

Each year, in October I write a blog post

to raise awareness about Breast Cancer.

The following statistics were taken from the

In 2013, breast cancer continues to be the most
common cancer diagnosis in Canadian women
 over the age of 20 – with 1 in 4 cancer
 diagnoses being breast cancer.

It is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in
Canadian women, after lung cancer.

Fewer Canadian women are dying from breast cancer
today than in the past.

Breast cancer deaths have decreased by 42 percent
since the peak in 1986 due to earlier detection through
 regular mammography screening, advances in screening
technology, and improved treatments.

One in 9 Canadian women is expected to develop breast 
cancer during her lifetime (by the age of 90).

One in 29 Canadian women will die from breast cancer.

Again this year I am including the link to an article from

This article provides information about breast health

and instructs on how to do a proper breast self exam

Please familiarize yourselves with your breasts and learn 

to properly examine your breasts. 

You owe it to yourself to take the 

best care of yourself

Here's the link:

I urge you to examine your breasts

on a regular basis and have your mammograms and

other diagnostic tests as prescribed by your

health care provider as early detection

is of the utmost importance.

and now, as promised

I'd love to win these earrings for my mom, who is a breast cancer survivor of 11 years this month! I myself have a high risk, because my mom, and both my paternal & maternal grandmothers are survivors. I was taught to always give self checks!
