    I educated a whole class of executive MBA students on the importance of breast cancer awareness and research last spring. My team and I wrote our term paper on the economic impact of Komen for the Cure and handed out pink ribbon pins during our presentation. With 9 women in our class, the stats suggest one of us will battle breast cancer and so the message about screening and early detection really hit home.

    I promote breast cancer awareness by displaying a pink ribbon as my Twitter avatar. This helps me and the people I interact with keep breast cancer awareness top of mind. Small daily reminders can be a great way to raise awareness.

    Since I am an avid recreational tennis player, I bought a set of pink ribbon wristbands. I can’t wait to rock them out on the court this winter’s ALTA season. *fist pump!

    I see my obgyn yearly and get a regular breast exam. Gotta protect my best assets!

    This year I did the Susan G Komen Breast Cancer 3-Day for the fourth time to raise awareness about breast cancer prevention and early detection. With the support of friends, family and strangers I was able to raise over $5,300 for the cause. I am inspired to be a part of this fight by a close friend who I lost year to breast cancer at the age of 42, as well as my friends and family who are courageous survivors. I wear a pink ring everyday to honor them and remind everyone I meet about breast health.

    I get my breast exam every year since my mom is a breast cancer survivor. Every year my dad supports breast cancer awareness by buying the schedule book with a pink ribbon on it! Go dad!

    A close friend is a cancer survivor and she inspires me to live a healthy lifestyle, including exercising daily, getting regular OBGYN check-up’s and eating a balanced diet. In my previous job, I was a co-founder of the company’s Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure team. Save the ta-ta’s!

    I have anual obgyn appointments every year and have started mamograms early since breast cancer runs in my family and at this point has not skipped a generation.

    Last year I was diagnosed with breast cancer after detecting a lump during a self exam. This year I walked in the Atlanta 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer and with the help of family and friends, my team raised over $6000.

    I share my story with all who will listen. I was 38 when I was sent in for an early BASELINE mammogram due to family history. Surprise, I had two lumps. During my surgery, we had another surprise. The cancer had already spread to the sentinol nodes.
    The early mammogram saved my life. I may not have made to to age 40 to be “old enough” for a mammogram. (and now they raised the age to 50!!!!!) I encourage everyone I meet to get their mammograms. My doctor and I did not feel the lumps. Only the mammogram and ultrasound detected the cancer. I hope all who hear my story will get themselves checked. If they stay on top of their own mammograms, they may get diagnosed at a much earlier, more easily treatable stage.
