"As part of the three-step breast health approach, Susan G. Komen for the Cure recommends that beginning by age 20, women become familiar with the look and feel of their breasts through monthly breast self-examination (BSE). Komen for the Cure offers a variety of BSE cards in different languages and for specific populations. You can order a free BSE card."
Also, I came across this video online about a 60 mile 3 day walk for breast cancer: http://www.cnn.com/2007/HEALTH/conditions/10/22/cancer.walk/index.html. Makes 5K look like a walk in the park.
As for the farewell, I'm only saying good bye for one week. I'll return next Friday to post pics from the race and tell you how it went, after I turn in my 20 page research paper for my history class. 1.5 pages down, 18.5 to go! Pray for me!
