October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month! It's been four years since my dad was diagnosed with male breast cancer. Luckily, it was caught in time and he is doing just fine now. I always try to buy the things that have pink ribbons on them, the packaging that says it donates to this or that breast cancer foundation. I've never made a direct monetary donation but over the years I'm sure I've accumulated quite a bit in donations. So many things I own have the pink ribbon on them. Every little bit helps. I do have it tattooed on my foot too; that's more about awareness though, and in honor of my father. I did a manicure for breast cancer awareness this week.
Stay safe and stay healthy. Check your boobies. Have your doctor check them, too. Early detection is key! Ladies, be sneaky and try to check your husband's boobies, too. Men get breast cancer. Breast tissue is breast tissue. Most men dismiss any lumps; be sure to take them seriously. Don't check any stranger's boobies though. That's assault!
