October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month where women are urged to get the proper screening and testing to avoid breast cancer. All across the nation men and women are sporting pink as an awareness ribbon to promote breast cancer awareness.
But, there is another group out there – breast cancer survivors. Those brave souls who have fought the cancer demon and won. Now women who survived breast cancer are sporting a new kind of lapel pin – I earned my pink. These pins are a reminder to women of all ages to get their screening done and help prevent breast cancer by exercising and eating properly.
