October is the month we're asked to raise awareness for breast cancer and breast disease. But remember, posting a pink ribbon doesn't mean anything if you don't support the gesture with an annual mammogram and monthly self-exams.
I invite you to visit the Press Pause Moments blog www.presspausemomentsblog.com where we have a number of writers - both from PPM and guest bloggers - writing about their experiences dealing with breast cancer and diagnosis. Among the writers are Sandra Aylward, Diana Raab and Sandra Freeman. I hope you'll take a moment to visit and peruse, listen to a podcast or read one of the inspiring essays.
I just got back from accepting the Clarion award for Press Pause Moments and seemed to have picked up a frustrating head cold along the way! Pressing pause this week to do a lot of writing and resting to get the energy levels back up!
