Biz e-Friday Countdown
Breast cancer has been around for decades, but it does not have to be our future. We can be the generation that eliminates breast cancer by identifying what causes this disease and stopping it before it starts.
One person can make a difference.
Now on to the countdown and some very important breast cancer blogs:
5.) Babble.com “Stroller Derby”
Story of a 10-year-old’s battle with breast cancer.
Jayne, a breast cancer survivor for nearly five years, contemplates what it means to be called a “survivor.”
Every 69 seconds, a woman dies of breast cancer somewhere in the world. What will you do to stop the clock?
There are so many women on this site blogging about their battle with breast cancer that I couldn’t possibly choose just one story. Please send them your support and prayers.
1.) Everydayhealth.com “Life with Breast Cancer”
Women AND men can get breast cancer. It does not discriminate. Male breast cancer also comes with a stigma. Men may support breast cancer awareness for women, but they hardly accept that it can be a disease they may have to deal with. In fact, a recent survey of men with a family history of breast cancer found that 79 percent didn’t know about their risk of the disease, and 100 percent stated that their primary care provider had never mentioned the possibility to them.
While not all blogs are success stories in fighting the disease, I hope they serve as a real reminder that anyone you know can be affected. Please support these brave people with a comment, email or prayer to let them know someone cares about their experience and journey.
I hope you found the Biz e-Friday Countdown helpful and enjoy your weekend.
Sleep until the kids wake you up. Goodnight.
