Hey Atlanta! October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month! And I want all my friends to take care of themselves, that includes you! Ladies please make sure you are doing self examinations and getting mammograms when needed. I know the exams are not fun & it doesn’t feel great, but early detection is the key to prevention and life saving treatment.
I especially want to give a shoutout to all the fighters & survivors of breast cancer. You are strong, brave warriors! There is one warrior I love dearly and I’m proud to say, she has been cancer free for 14 years! Keep supporting the fight, spreading awareness and Let’s go pink this month, in honor of those who have lost this battle.
Listed below are some events to participate and show your support: donate, join a walk or shop for Pink Awareness gear!
