A short personal note.

October will always be a special month for me. Not only is it Breast Cancer Awareness month but October 2014 marks my 9 year anniversary of being a Breast Cancer Survivor. Yes, cancer free and going strong.

During this month I encourage all women to get their mammogram and I hope you will suggest the same to the ladies in your life.

My journey has taught me a number of things and if I may I would like to take a moment and share a bit of advice. Be actively involved in your healthcare. Do not be afraid to ask questions and even more questions until you are comfortable with the answers that you have received. We are our own best advocate where our heath is concerned.
