October Is Breast Cancer Awareness Month


In Loving Memory of My Mother
(1930-2008)

My mother (top right, click on image for a larger view) is featured in this promotional poster, along with three other breast cancer survivors. Ironically, she survived her bout with breast cancer, only to be felled by colon cancer eight years later. The poster was displayed on billboards, buses, trollies, trains, and subway stations around Philadelphia during the early part of the previous decade. It is a reminder that breast cancer is a serious ailment, but can be treated and is survivable if diagnosed in time. If you have a loved one, tell them to see their doctor and get a check up. Let's try not to lose anyone else to breast cancer!
