Calling All Sistahs Breast Cancer Awareness Blog Hop

Happy Friday!

Calling All Sistahs!
As promised, I'm here to remind you to do your self breast exam!

You matter.
Early detection is key.
Please share this message with all of your sistahs.
If we can catch it early, we can keep working together to take this disease DOWN!
Breast Cancer Awareness
needs to be part of our monthly regiment.
October is great for getting the idea of awareness out there but there are 11 other months in the year
and breast cancer does not own a calendar.
I found mine in August during a routine self exam.
It changed my life, but I have a lot of life left to live because I caught it early.
That is my sincere hope for all of you!

Please do your self exams.
If you are past due on your mammogram, please schedule it today.
I don't want you to have it,
but if you do,
I want you to find it so you can crush it!

I'm joined today by sistahs from across the globe.
They are all just like you and me...awesome women who care :)
Some of us are survivors, some of us have survivors in our lives, and some of us have lost sistahs.
All of us want to spread the word about awareness and the importance of taking care of yourself.
I hope that you will be inspired by their projects,
strengthened by their messages,
empowered by our sistahood.

Before we start the hop,
I have a couple of winners to announce from last month!
I left for CHA the day after the hop last month and then was so distracted by all the hugging and eye candy, I completely forgot about our winners post! My bad!

  11. Thank you so much for doing this great hop! I lost my mom to breast cancer when we were both way too young. She wasn't there for me for all the great milestones in your life when you want your mom around. So do it for yourself, and do it for all the people who love you that you might leave behind.

  12. Thank you for letting me be part of this hop and reminding me to check myself too, cause I do it at the same time as I write my post for the hop! Lol!

  13. Thanks Michele, I know too many people who have been affected by this disease.


I love hearing from you!!
