Think Pink

So many of us have been touched by the dreaded C-word. So many of us have become warriors in the battle to eradicate it.

My new bloggy friend at Nana's Box is sponsoring a series of giveaways in recognition of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

"Nana’s Box is a nonprofit service committed to providing a photo box to cancer patients who are undergoing treatment. Nana's Box offers this service to the individual patient with the help and support of families, and those volunteers interested in the emotional support of cancer patients."
If you've never sat through chemo, radiation, or the endless rounds of medical appointments associated with cancer, remember those that have. It's tough. Having a tangible link to family and friends can be a real life-saver in more ways than one. A photo box gives patients undergoing treatment something to focus on other than the reason they're sitting in the waiting room, the chemo room, or the lab.
You can go to her site here to make a donation, or to enter the giveaway. There are two count 'em TWO giveaways each month through January. There are tons of fabulous prizes, and all that is requested is a comment and a link to Nana's Box. A donation would be greatly appreciated too.

J'Ollie Primitives is donating a 24-inch Barn Star to Nana's cause. You get to choose any color, and yes, we can custom paint a pink barn star just for you.

JillJillBoBill has donated her boobs. She is such a giving person. She demonstrates How To Do A Breast Exam With Your Shirt On here. And yes, she will work for shoes.
Feel yourself up. Check the ladies every month. If you haven't had your mammogram lately, get it done. If your health insurance is limited or non existent, contact your local Community Resource Center to get information on free or reduced-charge mammograms. Having your boobs squished in a waffle iron is well worth knowing that you won't need to go through the torment of treatment for breast cancer.
think pink!

I just had my first mammogram the other day and blogged about it. It has been one of my most popular blog posts. My aunt is a breast cancer survivor, so getting this mammogram was very important to me.

I'm part of the Secret Santa Soiree - my name is Kristin in the SSS.

Have a fabulous day!

Great post! I think women can get so busy sometimes, they need reminders about this sort of thing. :-)

I am one of the women who needs a little reminder now & then. Thanks! Great article. Priceless subject.

I am walking in the Breast Cancer 3-Day and have several giveaways on my two blogs too. I hope you will come by to see me. I am visiting you from the SSS blogroll.

Is it just me, or is Jill an exhibitionist? :) Actually, Jill won that shirt from me from a blog contest I was having.

I am a year late on my mammogram, and this is a good reminder for me to get on it and get it done already!!!!
