i'm a survivor

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and since I am a breast cancer survivor I just want to take a little time to advocate monthly self breast exams.


I found a lump during a monthly exam when I was only 28 years of age in 1993. I had a lumpectomy and radiation treatments and have been cancer free and healthy now for 14 years! So please..make monthly exams a priority and if you are a man, talk to your partners about this issue. Early detection is important. For more information go to


There, now that I am done doing the preachy thing (which usually isn't my style)..I hope you all have a great October. I will be away much of the month visiting family, but will be checking in every once in a while.


Take care all!
