Wordless Wednesday ~ Think Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness.

October is the official Breast Cancer Awareness Month and is all about increasing the awareness of the importance of early breast cancer detection.

The National Breast Cancer Awareness (NBCAM) program was founded in 1985 by Zeneca. Set up as a weeklong campaign aimed at promoting mammography as the most effective weapon in the fight against breast cancer. The NBCAM has now grown to an international phenomenon, with events and activities each October which increase awareness, and raise funds at the same time.

As this is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, to honor those whose lives have been touched through this disease, I found 5 quotes about faith, hope and strength.

May all beings everywhere plagued with sufferings of body and mind quickly be freed from their illnesses. May those frightened cease to be afraid, and may those bound be free. May the powerless find power, and may people think of befriending one another.

Early detection is key and if I hadn't found my lump early, I don't know what would have been. I am still here and I want to encourage women to do that on a regular basis. My cancer scare changed my life. I'm grateful for every new, healthy day I have. It has helped me prioritize my life. ~Olivia Newton-John

If children have the ability to ignore all odds and percentages, then maybe we can all learn from them. When you think about it, what other choice is there but to hope? We have two options, medically and emotionally: give up, or fight like hell. ~Lance Armstrong
