For mine, for theirs, for yours {Blog for Breasts Day}

It's late and may seem an afterthought but I simple could not let today go  by without a post. See today is a special day, it's

My girls and I have been through a lot. 

They have been cursed for their size. 

They have been pushed, and lifted, hoisted, and padded. 

They have been beaten against an uneven bar and smooshed down so tight they couldn't possible move on a run. 

They have nourished three babies for 28.5 months and counting.

They have also betrayed me, twice.

They have hugged survivors. 

They know their history and their chances and they work hard to beat them. For those, and for two smaller reasons:
That I joined Army of Women. 

What is the Army of Women?

A program of the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation, the Army of Women initiative is dedicated to recruiting one million women of all ages, ethnicities, with or without breast cancer, to sign up and participate in innovative breast cancer research studies.  After signing up at, members are then contacted via email blast about new studies seeking volunteers. They can either sign-up for the studies online, or if they do not qualify, they are encouraged to forward the information to a friend or family member. Every woman over 18 is welcome to participate, whether a breast cancer survivor or someone never affected.   There are currently more than 20 breast cancer studies seeking volunteers through the Army of Women.   The full list of open studies seeking volunteers like you are listed

I might be able to help find the cure and that is a powerful thing. 

Won't you help too? It takes minutes to join and a easy way that you can be part of the change that eradicates breast cancer so that our girls, don't have to work so much about their girls.
