Calling All Sistahs August Reminder Post

2 years ago today
I did a routine self breast exam and
I found a lump that turned out to be breast cancer.
I got scared.
I got mad.
I got hurt feelings.
Then I crushed it.
2 years ago today I had cancer. 
Today I don't and I'm here to remind you of the importance of early detection.
Next week I get to help my oldest son move into his dorm room for his first year of college.
The week after that I get to take my youngest son to his driver's license test.
The month after that I get to attend my niece's wedding. 
The month after that I get to celebrate CAS-ual Fridays 5th birthday.
My calendar is full of significant events and yet it still has lots of days waiting to be filled. 
I get to have them all because I caught cancer early! 
I don't have to miss a single thing.
no matter how full your calendar is, no matter how busy your day is,
take 5 minutes to check yourself and then make your mammogram appointment if you're due.
If you're not sure how to do it or what to expect,
check out this page from our friends at NBCF that will provide you with information and links to help you.

Today I'm joined by my Encouragement Squad who will delight you with their encouraging creations.


Melissa also included a great sentiment for the inside of her card!
