October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast cancer, unfortunately, is alive and well and affecting the lives of millions of women. This year, Breast Cancer Awareness month means even more to me. I lost a friend earlier this year. I don't believe she had to die. But that's a long story, the bottom line of which is: be proactive about your health. Be VERY proactive. Don't settle for a half-assed answer if it doesnt seem right, even if the person giving it to you has "M.D." behind their name.
As part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, my gym does a team challenge. I am taking this challenge seriously and am trying to exercise two hour a day for as many days as I can this month.
The challenge ends with the Race For The Cure. I have signed up for it. I'm nervous to tackle something new, but excited to face the challenge in memory of Elison.
I am also unashamedly asking for donations. If you want to help fight this nasty disease, please go to: http://www.komenaustin.org/goto/gingint
