Calling All Sistahs! It's March 17th!

Calling All Sistahs!

It's the 17th of the month and I'm here to remind you!!
It's all about that early detection!
Please do your self breast exam and schedule your mammogram if you're due for it.

Before we start our Sistahood hop
I want to share with you the letter I received recently from
It made me super happy and even though it's addressed to me,
it's really meant for all of you.

Hi Michele,

I hope you're having a great day!

I have some exciting news to share with you...

We have hit ONE in we have provided one million breast cancer early detection screenings and patient navigation services to those in need. That's one million times that:
  • someone who needed a mammogram, but couldn't afford one, was able to get the screenings needed to help detect her breast cancer earlier or even just give her peace of mind;
  • a patient who didn't know where to turn received guidance, a hand to hold, and help in understanding the next steps in her treatment plan;
  • a woman was provided access to critical resources like transportation vouchers, language translation services, and that she could focus on holding onto hope while facing breast cancer.
And we did this thanks to supporters like you. We are grateful to have been a part of giving vital help and real hope to the women who received these services, but YOU helped us get there. NBCF has been around for 25 years and we're just getting started. We hope to provide the next one million services even faster...but big numbers only tell part of the story. The lives changed are the real reason we are committed to helping people through every step of their breast cancer journeys.

Thanks for helping us hit this one million mark. We look forward to partnering with you to help us hit the next one million.

With appreciation,

1 million.


Every single of one of you who have purchased a set from the

has helped to make this happen.
I donate 50% of the profits from each set sold to

and I'm so happy to do it.
Every little bit helps
and I want you to always remember that
it's far worse to do nothing because you thought you could only do a little.
I knew when I started this that I could only do a little but I believed that little would really matter.
Our little, combined with lots and lots of other littles, has made a really big difference!


On that happy note, let's start the hop!
I'm joined today by my Girl Friday Ink Squad Team
and a few amazing friends from blogland who are here to help spread the word about
the importance of early detection and taking care of ourselves.
We hail not only coast to coast in the US,
but also Canada, Germany,  India, New Zealand, UK, and more!
We may be thousands of miles apart but we are all sistahs.
Your sistahs!
