October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. If you’ve battled breast cancer yourself or it's touched your life through a friend or family member, you know that this is one disease that hits close to home for women everywhere.

I encourage you to take the time to check out the information on our "Staying Ahead of Breast Cancer" page ... and pass the knowledge on to family and friends. Information is our best tool in the fight against this disease.

Be sure to check out the survivor stories from women who've faced this disease and won. Stories of inspiration truly help us celebrate the victories over breast cancer and spread

Thank you for posting this, Brenda! (I'll be reading from your links when I get home Monday and there's uninterrupted time to concentrate. Right now I'm waiting my turn in the kitchen to bake a birthday cake, make two trays of lasagna, and cook a roast - rare, please.)

I'll pop in to remind everyone of the "Pink Outside the Box" conversations going on at http://ivillage.waidev5.com/pinkoutsidethebox/site/
