Stinkin Pink

I admit it, although pink is one of my favorite colors, sometimes I get really tired of the whole stinkin pink thing during October Breast Cancer Awareness month.  

I know there are still some of you out there DESPITE HAVING A FRONT ROW SEAT to all my cancer shit and now preaching, who still have not scheduled a mammogram, and are way over due.

What's it gonna take?
I'll do whatever it takes.

See these?
I can't wait till I can retire them.
I'd burn 'em except they'd probably give off toxic fumes and give me cancer.

Lemme tell you, with all that I've been blessed, with all that arrived for me when cancer did, all the Angels on my path,

there are some things
I will never
get back.

More than just my boobs.
I will never be able to take back the day I had to sit my boys down,
the expression of utter grief and fear on their faces,
when Mom told them "I have breast cancer."

What's it gonna take?

Make no mistake about it, early detection saves lives.

Just do it.

I'm glad you made the decision and took action lovely writer girl, so that you could live your best possible life not only for you, but for your family too.

One time I missed a mammogram and my friend had a "talking to" with me!! She said "WHAT?? Are you crazy? People are depending upon you"! Ever since, I do it every year, not just for me, but for those I care about.

Love and Happy Autumn!!
