Think Pink ! October - Breast Cancer Awareness month

We know it is there, we can see it all around us. The celebrities reach the news,  but there are many more woman who deal with breast cancer or the fear of having breast cancer every single day.

The truth is that this particular kind if cancer is one of most "treatable" kinds, if you are diagnosed in time. The clue to all this, ladies, is that we have to be aware of our own body and notice changes in it. If the changes are there, and you are not relaxed about it, please do not tell yourselves that it is probably nothing and it will go away. If it is cancer it will not just go away. It never leaves by itself with other woman, why should you be an exception?

Let us inform ourselves well and when in doubt go for a check up.

Life is great and we owe it to ourselves and our families to take good care of ourselves (and outlive at least a few of them).
