Breast Cancer Awareness Month Announcement

Yes, it's that time of year when people suspect us of wearing pink for a purpose.  Don't worry, I'm not going to get into the politics of all that right now.

Right now, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I'm going to remind you all about Breast Cancer Recovery, a fabulous organization staffed by a group of women to whom I am very proud to be even vaguely connected.  Link on over to their website, and if you have (or have had) breast cancer, do yourself a favor and sign up for one of their incredible spirit-reviving retreats.  And if you don't have BC, link over and donate a little something, and know that you have made the world a better place.

And if you happen to live anywhere near Wisconsin, consider checking out the folks below who are doing some nice things to support Breast Cancer Recovery during the month of October:

Thank you so much for the link to BC Recovery! They even have a retreat for Survivors who live alone!!! I'm going to see if it would be possible to get a 'scholarship' as there's no way I could afford it myself. It would be SO good to talk to others. My daughter has been my closest supporter but I don't talk to her about cancer much because I don't want to scare her or make her worry about me.

I missed last month's BC Support group meeting because I was back in the hospital for another surgery. I'm planning on going this month.

It's so good to hear from you, Eileen! I worry when you get so quiet for so long. I think I understand though...
