I hope you are one of those few fortunate people who has never found themselves in the waiting room of a hospital, anxiously counting the minutes for the doctor to arrive with the results of your biopsy or the blood tests of a loved one.
I hope you have never heard the word “cancer” come out of the mouth of your family physician, suddenly changing your understanding of the word and shaking your whole existence.
I am not in that group of fortunate people who have been untouched by cancer, and I think it’s important to take time to recognize Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I looked on Delicious, a Yahoo! social bookmarking site, and noticed there are currently 21,504 bookmarks saved on breast cancer.
This is obviously a topic dear to many hearts.
There are many ways we can help like visiting the Breast Cancer Site to help raise money for mammograms and other programs. And for the month of October, you can turn pink. Join the Yahoo! community and share your reasons for joining in the conversation.
Feel free to share your story or any ideas on how we can help.
Let’s dream of a day where people diagnosed with breast cancer can have confidence that they will be not only be cured, but will go on to live rich, full and long lives.
