Observations 10.5, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month & the Dare

My sister and I are both a bit cocky, ok arrogant might be the word. Little did I know that my mini-me was beginning to take it to whole a new level. When I was at home Saturday she wanted me to take some pics of her for her Facebook and I said I would but if I liked them I wanted to post them too. Well she said I could on one little condition.

Now a some background is needed here. We both get our personalities from our mom, Sean and my dad are both totally laid back. Over seven years ago my mom passed away from some form of abdominal cancer, I don’t know that I ever did know the name of it. I do know that it was the beginning of one of the worst stretches of my life.

This being National Breast Cancer Awareness Month K came up with this. I had to do a photo of myself relating to that, I had to show some skin (her exact words), and I had to post it. Basically she was daring me to do it and a dare is a terrible thing to waste. So here is the result, I call it ‘the Dare’ (l).

National Breast Cancer Awareness Month educates women about the importance of early detection. More and more women are getting mammograms to detect breast cancer in its earliest stages. As a result, breast cancer deaths are on the decline. Encourage the women in your life to get mammograms on a regular basis.
