Sad Truths ...

In 1991, an average of 119 women died each day of breast cancer. This year? an average of 110/111 will die each day of breast cancer. While part of this can be explained by higher numbers of women being diagnosed and we have awareness, the truth is most money raised for breast cancer goes to education and early detection (and early detection is not a guarantee that everything will turn out okay). And very little goes to research. I'll talk more about this through out the month.


  1. Thinking of you, praying, and sending peace. I hope you have the windows open tonight. Stars shine for you.

    I want to hear more about where the money goes. A month of awareness seems pointless unless it helps raise money for research.


Seeing your comments makes me smile! Thank you so much =)
