Join the Pink Sisterhood! *


I've been tagged again and this time it's by the pretty Mrs. Ezman all the way in Sabah! Thank you for this very simple yet meaningful tag. This one is all about breast cancer, which everyone knows is one of the most life-threatening diseases today. I'm doing my part in spreading awareness on breast cancer by sharing some scary yet so very true facts on breast cancer. Ladies, do take note!

* 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.


Facts taken from Women's Health

PS. Please come up with your own contribution on breast cancer awareness. The facts above are my contribution on behalf of MPG, so a different piece from everyone will be much appreciated and adds more variety to the topic of breast cancer. Jean did an excellent job with her post, so you can check hers out! :)

Oh my gosh I think I am. Oh it will simply make my day so much better if I am!!

Shinade October 28, 2008 at 11:54 PM

Thank s for adding me to the list Marzie.

I am so glad that I finally had time to get this done.

And yes Kathy's story was very tragic.

Sadly her mother also passed away just last year at the age of 64.

She too had cancer but not breast cancer.

She died just 4 months after first starting to feel bloated and sick....causing her to go the DR..

By the time she felt her symptoms and saw a DR. the cancer was all through out her body including the bone.

The last couple of years have been very hard for our family.

But we try our best to keep trucking along.

That is due to our faith and with God's help.

Happy day...better get some drops done:-))))

Grandy October 29, 2008 at 12:40 AM

I probably had a little too much fun with mine.

Grandy October 29, 2008 at 12:41 AM

Such a tragic tale and now you're telling me her mom too suffered a similar fate...sigh! Let's hope our little sisterhood here will help spread the word on cancer and strengthen our fight towards battling this deadly disease. :):):)

Mariuca October 30, 2008 at 3:42 PM
