The month of October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Here at Jens Digi Stamps we want to recognize the 2.5 million women who survived breast cancer, Honor those that are standing up right now and Fighting Like a Girl we support you !
Please take the time to get a mammogram....
About 1 in 8 women in the United States (12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime.
The most significant risk factors for breast cancer are gender (being a woman) and age (growing older).
These statistics came from www.breastcancer.org
I'm so pleased to be part of this hop. We have a program here in Maine called, 'Buddy to Buddy'. Each month we are to remind our 'buddy' to do a breast self-exam - each year we remind our 'buddy' to schedule her mammogram. Here is my card to my 'Buddy', reminding her to schedule her yearly appointment. Hope you like it!
There is lots of candy offered for this hop, but I have a little bit of my own. I'm offering two followers a 'Breast Cancer Awareness' coffee/tea cozy, that I hand knit. Please be a follower and leave a comment and I will draw a winner immediately after the hop.
