Enough of silly vintage words – this is important stuff.

October is Breast Cancer month and as most of you are aware I am a survivor. Read about it starting here. I was lucky, I only had a bilateral mastectomy and now am Cancer free (boob free too, of course). It wasn’t all luck – I had a mammogram. One of my missions now is to encourage all my lady friends to GET A MAMMOGRAM. So tell all the ladies in your life to get one too!! I’m alive (most of the time) and knitting away because I was encouraged by others to GET A MAMMOGRAM. My mother died of Breast Cancer and my sister also had Breast Cancer – so it was a no brainer for me. Even if you don’t have a history – GET A MAMMOGRAM!

Hug the ones you love!
