Breast Cancer - The Female Killer

I have been thinking for the past few days about writing on Breast Cancer. But I was thinking I was not ready to write about it. Today, I read on This Day Newspaper about a female lawyer who was dignosed with cancer and I freaked out. She is okay now, thank God....But it got me thinking again.....

Some months ago my younger sister was complaining about a lump on her breast and trust me...I freaked out! But thank God it was not what I thought. Unfortunately for me, she was thinking the same thing...Breast Cancer. That got us thinking of going for Breast Cancer check up...and even for HIV check up,too.

Just last week I was scanning through some old Genevive Magazines. It's good to know that Betty Irabor and her team are doing a good job in creating Breast Cancer Awareness through the Pink Ball event. I also like the way she gets people who have been involved with this dreadful disease either as victims or through loved ones to share their experiences with us. I have a very dear friend of mine who lost her mother to breast cancer. I mean they had to cut off one of her mother's breasts while going through therapy. It hurts me when I remember it.

I really don't have much to say about this dreadful disease that's killing my female counterparts. All I can advise is for every female to try and go for a check up. Prevention is better than cure.

If any of you knows where someone can have a Breast Cancer check up, do give us a contact or/and a link.

Stay Safe!

"STAND UP TO CANCER" got some famous female artist to do a song for their concert. When I hear this song, it makes me smile and also to want to help fight away cancer. Enjoy....listen to the lyrics....very inspiring....
