Save Your Boobs, Save Your Life

Attention black women! Breast cancer is not a white women's disease, as many people believe. In fact, black women tend to get a more aggressive form of the disease at younger ages and have higher mortality rates. You don't have to have a history of cancer in your family. You can get it if you don't wear deodorant or even if you don't wear underwire bras. If you work out like crazy. Early detection saves lives. Believe me I know. Please get an annual mammogram if you are 35 or older, there are many programs funded by various hospitals and breast cancer organizations that arrange for free testing. Just do it!

Great advice!!! Way too many of our mothers, aunts, cousins, grandmothers and friends have died unnecessarily because of lack early detection. This word needs to spread like wildfire to every black woman we know.
