I've said it before and I'll say it again...

The National Breast Cancer Foundation estimates that each year, over 200,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and over 40,000 die. One woman in eight either has or will develop breast cancer in her lifetime.[1]

Think about that statistic... for example: ~65 of my Facebook Friends are female; Statistically, eight(8) of 'em will be affected by breast cancer.  Frankly, that's eight too many. 

If detected early, survival rate dramatically increases.  My mom was able to overcome breast cancer primarily b/c of early detection, so I do what I can to keep people informed of the benefits of routine check-ups.

So, please click on the pink ribbon above and tell 10 people to do the same.

What is the link you ask?  It's:

The Breast Cancer site is having trouble getting enough people to click on their site daily to meet their quota of donating at least one free mammogram a day to an underprivileged woman.

It takes less than a minute to go to their site and click on "donating a mammogram" for free (pink window in the middle).

This doesn't cost you a thing.

Their corporate sponsors/advertisers use the number of daily visits to donate mammogram in exchange for advertising.

If you're curious as to whether this is really spam or not...  check out this site for more background information:
