Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Better late than never, I guess. I was all set to redo this site a little bit. I wanted to make the background pink and have some pink ribbons to make people aware that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. I really wanted to point out the Third Annual Blooger Boobiethon. It runs from October 1st, to October 10th, of this year. Here is a quote from the page:

OCTOBER 1, 2004 -- For the third year in a row, bloggers all over North America are baring it all for breast cancer research until October 10. Founded by Florida blogger Robyn Pollman (http://www.shutterblog.com) in 2002, the Blogger Boobie-Thon has since grown into something much bigger... as boobies often do when they mature. The first $359 raised every year is donated to a worthy blogger's charity, and this year San Diego blogger Joelle's (http://www.tenth-muse.com) AIDS Walk and Rock the Walk (http://www.rockthewalk.org) has been chosen. The rest of the funds raised will go to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation (http://www.komen.org).

Anyway, I donated pictures and money towards the cause. Next year, I hope to have this site set up in advance to remind people about it.

Oddly enough, my next door neighbor came over to talk to me today. Turns out that a woman who used to live across the street was diagnosed with breast cancer. She didn't need a masectomy. They removed it and she it now receiving chemo treatments. I hope that that takes care of it.

Good for you. Doesn't matter if you're late, you donated. :)
