Tuesday Tips. Cancer Awareness.

I wanted to post a little something different today because I wanted to bring awareness to something that I had never heard of before until I was reading a post on a friend of mine's blog about a cancer that her Mom is dying from.
A cancer that I didn't even know existed.
A cancer that needs more awareness.
The more people that can spread the word means the more people that will know about it.....and the less people will die from it.

My friend is Michelle and her blog is Faith, Trust and a Little Pixie Dust.  Her mom is dying from Inflammatory Breast Cancer.  Never heard of it before?  Me neither and after I read about it I knew I wanted to tell everyone I know about it.

Please view the video below and tell every female you know.  You just might save someone's life!

  6. Great post Java. I knew about it because of a blog I used to read. She was only 34 with two very small children.

    As a breast cancer survivor myself, I know how important it is to keep everyone informed. Thank you.

    Hugs,
    Kat

  12. Great post - IBC is a beast and has taken more than one of my friends. But please remember (especially all of us over age 35) that all breast cancer patients have the best opportunty to survive if detected early. Monthly self breat exams are vital.

    You are eligible to have a baseline Mammo at 35 and annual at 40. GET YOUR MAMMIES GRAMMIED!

    Don't be too busy to be diagnosed - I was....

    Blessings,

  14. wow, so many cancers arising that never used to exist-I think it is the horrible food we are forced to buy from the supermarkets-its disgusting-they say that girls are maturing at the age of 6-7 (ie-getting periods) and the average life expectancy for the current generation is twenty years younger then our own generation- I am telling you it is the food-eat local-fresh-organic-free range foods-whole foods
