October is the annual Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Each year we join in our efforts and thoughts to remember those who passed away from this devastating bodily ailment, and to celebrate our strength to continue on the path of finding a cure and supporting those who are going through their battle with cancer.
We are celebrating this time because it gives us all a powerful thing we have in common – an ability to connect with each other on a human emotional level.
Would you like to join in this celebration of the awareness with your message, sharing your own stories, happy and sad, in the Month of October?

A Joyful Coming Together In How To Stay Well
This is the time within a year when we talk about breast cancer: its prevention, the understanding of the symptoms, how people cope with emotional and physical sides of this devastating disease, and many ways that each one of us can contribute to our own well-being.
Other than skin cancer, breast cancer is the most prevalent type of cancer affecting women in this country. The fact is that millions of women survive thanks to early detection. And the early detection in many cases is our monthly breast self-exam. Making it a regular thing in our lives can make a huge difference. Wait not for anything. Postpone not your self examination of the body part that we identify with as women. Treat your breasts with love and respect – give them a once-a-month self-exam!
Another small thing we can do for our own well-being is always be on the path of learning and reading up on health issues, on what can be done to make our lives more vibrant as we grow in age. Whether we want it or not, the bodies change with us as we age. The better we know our bodies, the more aware we are of any small change in them.
