october is breast cancer awareness month. a disease that hits home hard for me having lost my mom six years ago. she was only 54. while most of us are aware of breast cancer, many of us don't have an early detection plan and often forget to do self-exams and when age-appropriate, mammograms. when detected early, the 5-year survival is nearly 98%. so set up reminders for yourself and the special women in your life. you can also go to to create a plan and get monthly reminders (also available in apple or android stores for free)
