A Poem


Roses are red.
Ribbons are pink.
It's time for a mammogram,
Don't you think?

It's October.
It's Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
This month brings the 2 year anniversary
of my very first mammogram ever
- and my breast cancer diagnosis.
*
Here's some advice based on what
I've learned in the last 2 years:
*
Be good to yourself.
Put yourself first sometimes.
Be good to others.
Let others help you.
Be ever so grateful for your family and friends.
Do your monthly self-exams.
Schedule your mammogram appointment.
Knit something pink.
*
And perhaps the most important bit of advice I can give . . .

Listen to your mother.

Hey Knelley, thank you for the reminder. I saw a breast cancer awareness bumper sticker on a car this morning that I thought you would appreciate. It said "Save the Ta-Tas!" :-)
