Race For The Cure Update
As it currently stands, I am 32% of the way to meeting my goal of raising $500 for the Race For The Cure. Thanks to everyone who has helped out thus far. If you are so inclined, hop over to the sidebar and find out how easy it is to make your donation today. What an amazing organization for such a lousy disease. Was in this AM and spoke with my primary physician (for simply a routine physical) but he reiterated that my chances of getting breast cancer are 1 in 3 based on family history. But he was quick to remind me that I have a 2/3 chances of not getting it. They will be doing close observation and possbily baseline mammography within the next year or two. Scary stuff. The possibility of genetic testing was also brought up. I urge you - actaully kind of beg you - please, please support this cause (whether monetary or not!) And don't forget ladies - monthly self breast exams are crucial in detection.
