Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Just in case you may have missed this detail, October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Here are two easy things that you can do this month to help be a part of the cure:
 
The National Breast Cancer Foundation provides good information about signs and symptoms, early detection, current research, and also debunks some of the myths about cancer.  One woman in seven either has or will develop breast cancer in her lifetime.  This means that we all know someone who has faced this disease.  Please take a few minutes to read up on what you can do to help.
 
Over at the Breast Cancer Site, a campaign is under way to help fund mammograms for women who can't afford them.  Mammograms are the easiest form of detection for breast cancer, and an early detection increases the likelihood of surviving the disease.  You click on a button on their site to help fund this project.  You can click once each day (hey -- put it on your tool bar, it only takes a minute), and donations are tripled during the month of October.

Thanks for the info. I included a link to both your site and to the plane in a new post.
