Do Breast Self Exams

Do You Do Monthly Breast Self-Exams?

If case you've missed all the pink ribbons, let me remind you that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. And even though some health experts think breast self-exams are no longer necessary, getting to know your girls seems like a simple way to empower yourself against the disease.
