Think Pink for October


{This post is sponsored by Providence Health System which helps to support this blog; the opinions are of my own. Thank you.}

This month is all about raising breast cancer awareness and, so, you know how important this cause is to me. 
My mother passed away from this. So I feel an important need to - not only be aware of this family history myself - but to let others be aware that it can happen to anyone.


I'm partnering with Providence Health System to share that 1 in 8 women develop breast cancer! One in EIGHT?? Shocking, right?! Which is why it's soooo important to participate in early detection. #ProvidencePartner 

πŸŽ€Be sure to schedule annual mammograms starting age 40 - you can do it even sooner if you've had a family history of this (just let your doctor know! I started at age 30).


πŸŽ€In the mean time, you can also do self breast exams at home and pay attention for any random lumps or pain.


As a mom now myself, and knowing this runs in my family, I have more reasons to be more aware of it and get check-ups annually.


Early detection can help save lives!

Have you gotten your mammogram for this year yet? 

If not, there's still a couple months left to schedule it!

As always, thanks for reading and sending you air hugs!
