October is pumpkins and football and sweaters and comfort food! It is also Breast Cancer Awareness Month!! I have to admit that I haven’t paid much attention to this because cancer doesn’t run in my family and I have no relatives that have ever had breast cancer. The awareness part of the program though alerted me to the FACT that 80% of breast cancer diagnosis’ do not have a family relationship to the disease! Whoa! That’s staggering and shook me out of complacency and made me make an appointment for a mammogram.
