October has become a month of a very important Pink Symbol. Not the pretty Pink Pentas you see here in my Georgia Garden. Pink is a reminder of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month!
Breast Cancer is the second cancer killing disease for women following Skin Cancer. One of the tricks to beating this awful disease is early detection and treatment. So Lady Garden Blogger and Lady's of Male Garden Bloggers, do as I and get your appointment for a yearly mammogram!
It is not as bad as the horror stories I had heard before my first mammogram. I receive more pain from a mosquito bite then a mammogram. If you are a bit modest such as I, try my little trick. I go to my mental "Happy Place" which is my imaginary perfect garden free of weeds. As I stroll through my happy place, I talk to the tech while having my mammogram and soon the procedure is over. Then I treat myself to Pizza at my favorite Italian Restaurant!
So THINK PINK, In the Garden...
