Save the Ta-Tas!

We saw a woman wearing a pink, “Save the Ta-Ta’s” t-shirt. Hadn’t ever seen it put like that, but it sure got our attention. We know breast cancer is scary, but closing our eyes, covering our ears and hiding under the bed does not prevent it. In the last year Robin Roberts has shared her journey with us. Yesterday on The View she put it succinctly, “Feel the fear. Walk through it anyway.” Christina Applegate has also been open about her battle with the disease. We even wrote about breast cancer in a young woman in Better Than I Know Myself. Not the most pleasant thing to think about, but the good news is that knowing is powerful.

On October 18th check out award winning actress Regina King in the Lifetime movie Living Proof. It’s about women dealing with their diagnosis and treatment, and doctors determined to find a cure. Regina’s mom sent us this trailer so we’re spreading the word!

We know mammograms are uncomfortable, but tell the truth—you’ve worn shoes that hurt worse. Donna is going for her annual squish next week—that’s a whole lotta meat between two plates of glass, but you get through it. So take care of your ta-tas. Your body will thank you.

Yes mammograms hurt...and so do biopsies, breast surgery, twice, radiation and thank God because I was diligent about getting those awful mammograms I was detected early and didn't have to have chemo.
