Raising awareness for Breast Cancer
Be careful, however, that the exercise of your freedom does not become a stumbling block to the weak 1Cor.8:9
Sometimes it may be harmless fun and sometimes what you do or say may not even be anything bad at all...but sometimes we need to ask ourselves... "Is what I am doing or saying being a stumbling block to someone who is weak...?"
Breast Cancer is serious, I know many ladies who have battled it.. who are battling it now... even some of them family members.. So its very important to first off do your own exmination.. I know when I was in high school in sex ed class they taught us and told us the importance of checking yourself for breast cancer.. I honestly did not think about it to much afterward.. well in Sept of 2008 in check up it was discovered I had a lump a very noticeable lump! if only I would have checked myself I would have found it very easy... I had got an ultra scan the doctors said it was okay and that it looked like nothing but on the safe side, I had an biopsy... I think my hubby (he was hubby to be at he time and my dad were more nervous that I was...) It came back as a benign tumor something actually quite common in younger ladies. While yes I was relieved but it also taught me the importance of checking myself, especially since there is record of breast cancer in my family.
So if you want to do something, Donate to money for research, Walk for someone,
Spread news to your love ones and good friends to check themselves... we all need reminders! Most importantly Pray for those who are battling it!!
