Did you know 1 in 8 women are diagnosed with breast cancer?

Yikes!  We all know someone who has been touched by this disease.

I lost a dear friend to cancer six years ago.  I only have to think for a minutes or two to figure out when it was, because she died shortly after we adopted Rosie.  As sick as my friend was, she was still thoughtful enough to have someone shop for gifts for my new family.  Among them was the Dr. Seuss books, “One Fish, Two Fish”.  It is one of Rosie’s favorites and whenever we read it, I remember…

About 29,250 women in the U.S. were expected to die from breast cancer in 2011.  But death rates have been decreasing since 1990.  These decreases are thought to be the result of treatment advances, early detection through screening and increased awareness.

Thankfully, today there are many survivors of breast cancer.  One of the reasons that the survival rate is higher now is early detection.  Because of increased awareness women are do self-exams and if appropriate, getting mammograms.  It’s hard to remember those self-exams, isn’t it?  I’ve always been hit or miss, but I’m going to my planner right now to write the word, “headlights” on the 15th of every month.  (I’ll explain in a minute) Brb.  Okay, done, now it’s your turn.  It’s okay, I’ll wait.  Hum, hum, hum.  Back?  Yay, you!

Did you figure out the reference to “headlights”?  Hehehe.  The people at Go Daddy are sponsoring a campaign called, “Check Your Headlights”.  And, it has nothing to do with car maintenance!  Danica Patrick, the Go Daddy girl, just drove a hot pink race car in the Dollar General 300 at the Charlotte Motor Speedway on Friday to promote this program.  Her next race is October 20th, the Kansas Speedway Kansas Lottery 300.
