Big or Small, Save Them All

As I hope everyone already knows, October is national breast cancer awareness month. Beside skin cancers, breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in America. The statistics are way too high, with 1 in 8 American women diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. In 2013, 232,340 new cases of breast cancer will be diagnosed and 39,620 women will die from breast cancer. That's way too high a number of mothers, sisters, daughters and wives being lost to a disease that develops genetically, without missteps from the patient. Although it is possible to treat breast cancer through radiation, chemotherapy and other kinds of therapy, there is no surefire way to prevent it before it starts. Organizations like The National Breast Cancer Foundation and Susan G. Komen For the Cure foundation raise hundreds of millions of dollars each year to research new ways to fight breast cancer. Someday I hope the geniuses working in medical research will find a single, simple way to successfully cure breast and other kinds of cancers, but for now all we can do is donate our support and money and pray that the cure is close by. This week's manicure Monday is a nod to the American Cancer Society and other organizations working to find a cure, along with all the women and their families battling with this disease.

 Pink for breast cancer and cheetah print for all the strong fighters battling their way through life. Each patient is a brave warrior and deserves to be seen as such. My lovely sister, Monica, models a pink accented outfit to match the breast cancer theme.
