Dear Lovely Readers,
October was Breast Cancer Awareness Month. While today is the first day of November, that doesn't mean that the threat of Breast Cancer is gone. Actually, this weekend, I am running in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure here in Austin! Unfortunately I registered this year because one of my dear friends was diagnosed with Stage III breast cancer a few months ago. Getting the news was very scary, imagining what she and her children/family would have to go through as she fought it was heartbreaking. She's well into her treatments now; she's lost her hair but the fight in this woman is HUGE!
Breast cancer statistics are scary- 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed in their lifetime. 1 in 8. So today I'm passing along to you some a Tip from My Fit Foods (well, 10 of them, actually) on preventing breast cancer prevention.
Please keep my friend in your thoughts and prayers!!
