Now for something educational. . .

School starts this week so I'm in a learning mood. There are a handful of blog I like to read on occasion and Holy Mama! had a great post this week reminding us all to do our monthly self-breast exams. Through that post I found this great video all about Inflammatory Breast Cancer which is what my mom died of in June 2002. If you don't have speakers, check out IBC Research. It is one of the best pieces I've seen about IBC and what it can do. Take a look and pass it on. Then go feel your boobies.

Watching this video made me feel like going back 4 1/2 years to when your mom got IBC. I had never heard about it until then either and couldn't believe how cruel a cancer it was and how fast it moved.

Kim, thanks for putting that link there. I'd heard about your mom from someone at the CCHS reunion, but didn't know what had happened. I'm so sorry, Kim and Jen...I'm sure you miss her so much.

Thanks for the info and for the beautiful link. I remember talking to your mom about how she was doing and what she needed. I remember her saying she liked the taste of lemon -- that it tasted so good to her. Isn't it strange what I remember? But I never got into the medical part of the cancer. This is very great information!
