I survived breast cancer. I should be as rigorous as anyone when it comes to performing a “self-exam” EVERY month.  …and, well, I’m not. I was embarrassed, at first, that I didn’t perform this simple exam – one of the best ways to identify breast cancer early and help survive this damn disease.  To remedy this, I signed up for a monthly email/text reminder on www.NotJustPink.org, which has prodded me to check every month, without fail! Do you check every month (you don’t have to answer to me, but perhaps you might consider a regular reminder?)?  …oh, and the proceeds ($12/year) go toward an awareness campaign directed at high schools and colleges!  Everybody wins!
