It's still October and Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Although I'm a week late for "Feel Your Boobies Week" ~ I still wanted to share with everyone this wonderful site ~ "FeelYourBoobies.com" ~ dedicated to increasing awareness of Breast Cancer! Leigh Hurst is the founder and has an amazing story . . . . She says: "Why Feel Your Boobies®? Because you do it everyday anyway, right? Oh come on…sure you do! You take a shower, you feel your boobies. You get dressed, you feel your boobies. Since you know your body better than anyone else does, why not just take a little extra time to really “feel your boobies”. Give those “girls” the attention they deserve. After all, getting in the habit of knowing what’s normal for you increases the chance of noticing changes in your breasts if they occur. If a change does occur it’s important to tell a doctor or clinician immediately so they can determine if more tests are necessary. " ~ As yet another friend of mine has been recently diagnosed with Breast Cancer, please, please everyone ~ Check this site and Feel Your Boobies!

So let's go girls ~ Take a Peek at this awesome website and remember, "Feel Your Boobies"!!

Thanks for all the reminders of an important issue for women. My daughter-in-law had breast cancer about 8 years ago - quite young - age 36 - but she is doing fine now.

Also, I do want to thank you for visiting my blog: http://themommandmeboutique.blogspot.com

I am working on a website - hoping to get it up by middle of November. www.overthetopaprons.com

Bit more difficult than I anticipated; limited computer skills.

Thank you so much for doing this post on such an important topic. I read it a while ago, but kept forgetting to come back and leave a message because I got so caught up in the link to "Feel You Boobies." It is a great site especially for those who are reluctant to do self-exams.
