October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but you knew that already, right?? My grandmother is a breast cancer survivor. So, I should know that, right? Come here, I'll let you in on a little secret. Come close now. I didn't realize it was Breast Cancer Awareness Month until yesterday. Tsk, tsk on me. But, since it was only the third day of the month, I think I'll forgive myself.
So, you want to know what blazing pink ribbon reminded me?? Why did I realize it on Sunday? Can you say FOOTBALL?! As in the NFL teaming up with the American Cancer Society!! All the players & even the referees were wearing pink somewhere on them from pink cleats to pink wristbands to pink hand towels. And it was a pretty cool thing to see!
There's someone I would like you to meet. Lisa, of Takin' Life One Day at a Time, is a mother, a blogger, and through blogging, has become a friend. She is fun, witty, comedic, loves life & her grown kids. And after being recently diagnosed with breast cancer, she is currently undergoing treatment. Lisa shares her story in her own words here and here. And this morning, even had a funny story to share, Mom, Is That Mastectomy With An "M"?
Ironically, Lisa held a Squeeze Your Melons giveaway last October, for Breast Cancer Awareness Month and guess who won?! Yup, I did. She sent me a pack of the most gorgeous & fun variety of papercrafting goodness (aka paper, trim, flowers, accents, oh my!). And now, its my turn to ask you to squeeze your melons and perform your own breast self exams and if you haven't before, you can go here for a simple five step set of instructions!
Please do go meet Lisa , say hello, and show her some of that famous blogland love and encouragement!!
She is oh so Worth the Click! :>
