This Thursday on the Choose 2 Think Podcast, you will hear a story of a beautiful young woman named Kailen (pictured above) who passed away at the age of 25 from breast cancer. Like you, I, too, knew a breast cancer diagnosis was very rare in women in their 20s and 30s. To be sure, according to the American Cancer Society, it accounts for less than 5% of all cases.
In respectful honor of Kailen and others like her, and I want to share just a few facts that I found on the National Breast Cancer Foundation website AND I'd like to pose a challenge for you:
Needless to say, we all probably have a family member or friend who has received this diagnosis.
The C2T Episode 041 with guest Bryan C. Taylor (coming soon) is more about love & loss and death & grief; however, October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month, and it seems appropriate to shed light on this formidable disease.
Matter of fact, although I have annual mammograms, I'm a bit on the lazy side with personal breast exams.
MY CHALLENGE: Let's you and I both commit to doing whatever we can personally to increase early detection. Here's a free guide published by the National Breast Cancer Foundation in case you'll join me!
