October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Please make sure that all of the ladies in your life are aware of the symptoms and that they practice self examination on a monthly basis. Have you ladies had your Mammogram? If not, make an appointment to have it done soon. Breast cancer is curable if caught in the early stages. Be proactive, and do what you can to prevent or stop this deadly disease, and remember, although this disease affects women most often, men are not immune. Guys, if you find any abnormality, get it checked. It may save your life.
