October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October 1st marked the first day of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Show your support in honor of those who lost their lives in the fight and are no longer with us. Honor those who survived in the fight for their lives that are living testimonies who have overcome and are still with us.

Support, embrace, and encourage warriors who have been diagnosed. They will need your love and support the most. Be there for them as they go through. Reassure them you’re in this together and together, you all will make it through.

Celebrate relatives and friends who have lost the fight as well as those who have survived. You are more than conquerors. You won. You are a breast cancer survivor.

Donate your time. Volunteer. Simply wear pink or a pink ribbon today and this month every day. Together we can make a difference in the lives of others today and every day.

1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lives (National Cancer Institute ). Get tested early with mammogram screenings for early prevention. Regular checkups will aid in early prevention that can save a life.

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast cancer is not the end. Have faith. Surround yourself with the support of family and friends. You’re not alone. You’ll make it through. God is watching over you. God loves you.

Be blessed! -JD
