In the last week alone, two amazing female writers that I follow on the interwebz have been diagnosed with breast cancer. Xeni Jardin, co-founder of Boing Boing live-tweeted her mammogram today only to find out she does in fact have breast cancer. Last week through her Forbes Blog, Pink Slipped, Susannah Breslin announced she had breast cancer after chronicling her journey through her mammogram, biopsy, and finding out the truth while shopping in a Costco.
Some of you who read this blog know that my mother is a breast cancer survivor and the cause is very close to my heart. So for the love of God can someone tell me what’s going on that all these YOUNG women are being diagnosed with breast cancer?
Ladies, please remember to do your monthly self checks, visit your GYNO yearly, and once its due time- schedule your mammograms- they will save your life.
