A little note...

A few days ago my best friend, Jayme, found out that one of her aunts has breast cancer.
This is not the first time her family has been struck by this unfair disease. Cancer doesn't play fair. She has family that has survived, and family that has passed from the same disease.
I have been a shoulder for her, and will continue to stand by her side through what is sure to be ups and downs. I plan to do everything in my power to be there with her as she goes and gets "squeezed".

On October 18th I will be walking by her side as we complete the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. Watch for a donation button too. I will be walking in memory of her family as well as a close family friend of mine that passed, and in support of her aunt who was recently diagnosed.
Also hop over to my photo blog to see what is going on over there in the month of October!

If you are at risk, or are of the age to begin getting mammograms, PLEASE go!!! I love you all! Go get squeezed! Its so worth it in the end!
