In honor of October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I changed my profile picture on Facebook pink. As someone who has had breast issues in the past, I know how scary it can be when something is wrong with your body. Recently, I have been reading reports that say self breast exams are no longer encouraged because they haven't been shown to make a difference. I completely disagree with that. I think every woman should know her breasts, that way she can tell if there is something wrong. And make sure you get your mammograms. As much as I feared having one done, it really wasn't that bad. If you are really afraid, take a friend with you. Just make sure you get it done. We all know that the best chance at beating Breast cancer is finding it early.
