Meme Pink Sisterthood

Alison RDH mom tagged me for this meme ages ago and I haven't got around to doing it. I think mainly because I thought people wouldn't really appreciate being tagged over Christmas.

* One in eight women or 12.6% of all women will get breast cancer in her lifetime.
* Breast cancer risk increases with age and every woman is at risk.
* Every 13 minutes a woman dies of breast cancer.
* Seventy-seven percent of women with breast cancer are over 50.
* Breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in women between the ages of 15 and 54, and the second cause of cancer death in women 55 to 74.
* Risks for breast cancer include a family history, atypical hyperplasia, early menstruation (before age 12), late menopause (after age 55), current use or use in the last ten years of oral contraceptives, and daily consumption of alcohol.
* Early detection of breast cancer, through monthly breast self-exam and particularly yearly mammography after age 40, offers the best chance for survival."

Breast cancer touches everyone. My MIL had a breast removed 2 years ago. We have someone in our home school group going through it right now. I need to be more on top of things like mammograms. I have been a bit complacent because I check monthly and I am not in the risk groups mentioned.

I scanned down, lovely photos and a wonderful collage and great way to greet the New Year.

Happy New Year to you and your family.
