Think Pink: Early Detection is Key!

 Last night mom, Jamie, and I went to the Saks 5th Avenue “Celebrate Women and Fall Fashion Show”.  There was a doctor’s panel, reception (pink cupcakes!), and a fashion show.  The panel discussion covered current testing and treatment and surgeries.  Something that was touched upon and I feel the need to reiterate to anyone who will listen is this “Early detection is key!”  Please, please, please get to “know your girls”!  Learn to perform a Breast Self Exam (BSE) and become familiar with your breasts and the various changes they go through each month. Early detection is really key and breast cancer knows no age limit. If you aren’t familiar with how to perform a BSE, instructions can be found here

Here’s a picture of  Lance Armstrong’s momma, Linda Armstrong Kelly, who was the guest speaker and a picture of the audience enjoying the show.
