I, along with the Susan G. Komen Foundation would like to end Breast Cancer. Therefore, this makes me determined to get the word out about anything and everything that will help women live healthy lifestyles or at least help in the cause. Let’s all start by imposing some information that has been handed to me by the Susan G. Komen Foundation. As a woman of color, the Know Your Girls campaign is just one cause that speaks volumes to why more women should get involved.

In August of 2017, I went for my regular breast cancer screening since age 40, yes I turned 40 in 2011; everything went smooth, then a few days later I got a call. The test showed something that did not look good; I assured myself it was nothing because I touch myself (Ode to a song) quite often since finding out I have dense breasts, and sure enough the test results were negative.

One of the first steps to combat breast cancer is to do self-examinations or annual check-ups by your doctor. I see my physician of three years now, Dr. Lina Shammas, who teaches me to take extra precaution for anything hard or things abnormal to the touch on my girls/breasts/boobs paying homage to the
Know Your Girls initiative of Susan G. Komen Foundation

A blast Blog post from the Past
The perils of life can turn a good day into something somewhat distorted on so many levels. Pitfalls that revolve in life can get a bit out of control. Therefore people young or old face tremendous obstacles that weigh heavy on our brains; although barriers leave us in a strain, there can be light at the end of the tunnel. For those who are in a difficult season believe me things will get better. Above all, it will come to pass, and I have five reasons to have a good day.
5. You have a job/career. Congratulations, you a member of the working class society. If you are too young for a job, focus on all the right things in your life and not the bad.
4. The rent or mortgage paid in full; I know this goes back to having a job; it also goes along with being able to maintain your priorities. High five for you
3. Family and Friends genuinely care and love you. Keep that energy going.
2. Mental health is steady. Be slow to anger (I need this) Keep smiling
1 You woke up to see another day. Move ahead
