This month we are honoring and celebrating the women in the AnaOno community who've been diagnosed with breast cancer. Never one to encourage others to do something I wouldn't do myself, I thought I would start off the month with my own story, which includes the story of how AnaOno began.
Knowing how to perform a breast self-exam won’t save you from the clutches of breast cancer. (If the cancer comes a-calling, you can’t ask it to please move along to someone else. It picked you, and you have to deal with it). But, self-exams can make a dramatic difference in when the cancer is detected. Provided, of course, you actually do them.
