When a woman mentions the word cancer…we automatically think pink…but sometimes women with cancer don’t always see the world pink. The pink ribbon campaign known around the world and is synonymous with breast cancer…but breast cancer is not the only cancer exclusively to woman.
Too often the gynecological cancers fall to the waist side…the silent killers…the ovarian cancer and the cervical cancer. Surprisingly not too many women know about these particular cancers… and not too many women know that a pap smear only detects cervical cancer...and not ovarian cancer.
So today is the first weekend in the month of October and the first weekend to kick off activities for October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month…And I’ve been up since 4:00 a.m...And I feel like I am preparing for a Black Friday sale...tired and excited!
And whether you have on your Teal Bracelets for Ovarian Cancer or your Pink Scarves for Breast Cancer…remember we are out there for the same reason…A Cure for Cancer.
Thank You to All of our participants and volunteers whose efforts have made all the events around the U.S. possible. Remember to be safe and the "Buddha Beat" for today is... Madonna and Justin Timerlake-4 minutes. Enjoy the video below...courtesy of YouTube.
