October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We are going pink in honor of my Mother, Betty Cumbie who lost her battle with breast cancer this year in March. Momma fought that battle for the third time in twelve years. She passed away almost exactly one year from the time of her third diagnosis.Breast cancer affects one in eight women during their lives. I would encourage all of you to please get your annual mammogram and remember to do your breast self exam on the 13th of every month. To learn how to conduct the breast self exam, visit the Susan G. Komen website.
