Sunday’s PINK RIBBON “Inspiration for Your Perspiration” and Giveaway 10/21/2012

on October 21, 2012

This is going to be a little different from my usual “Inspiration for Your Perspiration” blog.  But it’s that important….let’s talk about BREAST CANCER.

I found this great audio link at “Revive our Hearts” It’s the story of Margaret Ashmore, a breast cancer survivor (along with breast cancer surgeon, Dr. Sally Knox) and how God used this dreaded disease to transform her life and draw her close to His heart.

It’s October and besides being one of my very favorite months of the year cool weather, beautiful colors and of course Halloween (yes I do still dress up EVERY year) it’s also Breast Cancer Awareness Month.   Both my mother and my aunt (my mother’s sister) are breast cancer survivors.  That puts me at a higher risk.  But I have also taken precautions to help put the odds in my favor and reduce my risk here are a few:

  • limit alcohol   – check
  • control your weight  – check
  • get plenty of exercise  – check 😉
  • breast feed – check, check, check (thanks kids)
  • eat the “right” kinds of fats – check   (you know I love my MUFAS)

You can read more information on these and other behaviors to stack the odds in your favor at these two great links…..  Everyday Health (Dr. Oz’s 10 tips) and The Mayo Clinic site (click to visit)

So to help spread the word I am giving away not 1, not 2 but 3 sets (2 pins each) of Pink Ribbons Pins.  I had to pick these up when I saw them.  It’s a keep one, share one set.  The winners can keep one and give one to their best friend, sister, co-worker or total stranger!  Love it!
