October is breast cancer awareness month.

Prof B has the goods, and because I’m busy I’m just going to swipe her whole post. Watch out for that first link if you’re squeamish, it’s a post-op picture of a mastectomy.

This is what breast cancer is about.

Here’s a place to start doing research on the latest news related to breast cancer: disease, diagnosis, treatment.

Here is an animated explanation of how to do self-exams. Do them. If, like me, you forget, order yourself a free shower card to help remind you.

October 21 is National Mammography Day. Call and schedule a mammography for yourself. And/or encourage your wife, sister, girlfriend, daughter, to do so.
