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
More women need to speak up against Domestic Violence
Today begins another saga, when finally my mind is at ease, the dirt of my past rears its ugly head. I am receiving the annoying phone calls from my ex; the nerve of him to start things up again, this charges my reaction to the cycle of my domestic endurance. The preparation of discovering what obstacles are coming my way is interesting; I am confident that I will get my peace and swag back. I prefer not discuss all the consistencies of this affair. I won custody of our children, and we divorced I thought the pain was over. My kids are the best, mom and dad issues have nothing to do with our love for them. We don’t see each other, and things are great; I have no bitterness or anger.
The dysfunction began as a result of his domineering drug abuse dependence.
My first case with him began in 2003, when he took his fist to both my eyes, I got black eyes from the dysfunction, thus the first restraining order. I remember the court date, the lawyer pleaded with me to testify in the case but instead I stayed home. A mistake I find disheartening, especially now the news flash shows a brave soul standing up for her rights and taking down the jerks.
Consequently, I have taken charge of my life; my bravery most likely will help others. I share stories like this to uplift and above all shed light, to see that you are not alone, it’s effortless to pretend that nothing has happened. Yes, sharing bad moments of the past will begin a cycle of change, a significant difference that should shift in a right direction that will prepare more women and maybe even men to speak up, you are not alone, do not keep silent.
