October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and a friend of mine reminded me of how important prevention is.

Then I got to thinking.

I’m not immune to this disease. Not only are 2000 men a year dying from Breast Cancer, but 1 in 12 women will develop it in their lifetime.  When I stopped for a moment and realized I am a son, a husband, a brother and father, I suddenly realized that someone in my family is at risk.

When EpiJunky asked if I was willing to support a group called EMS for the Cure to raise money for research and spread awareness, I agreed.

Then I began to look into what she was asking me to bring awareness to.

After wiping the tears from my eyes I gave the only answer I could: “Hells yes.”

And here is where to get a background or button for your blog or site to help your readers learn more.

I challenge you to go pink and stay pink until the 15th of October and offer links on your site that help folks learn how to prevent breast cancer.
