KILLER

Last year almost 40,000 American woman died of breast cancer. (Link)

One in eight woman will develop breast cancer over their lifetime.

As of last year there were 2.5 million breast cancer survivors in the US.

About a quarter of women who are diagnosed with breast cancer have no family history.


This weekend I am doing my part to fight breast cancer, and I'm going to have a kick ass time doing  it. I'm going to the Bringing Back the 80's Festival in Frankenmuth, MI. I've went the last two years and had a blast. It's something we look forward to every year.

Besides, it's not everyday my husband can dress up like this for a good cause:

Love that outfit! It's definitely an eye catcher.

No breast cancer in my family, but I know it still can happen to anyone. Thanks for the reminder.
