I am in.  Many members of my family fought breast cancer and that is why we need research done now.  Together we can make a difference.

I lost a brother several years ago to breast cancer.I know a lot of people are not aware that men can get breast cancer, he was the first I heard of it. In November 2010, my sister was diagnosed with breast cancer, and in December 2010, I was diagnosed with it. It all seemed like a horrible nightmare. My sister and I are doing good. We are so thankful! I have a mammogram next month...makes me a little nervous, especially since I have recently found a small lump. God Bless everyone who is dealing with breast cancer, or who ever has had to deal with it..

Breast cancer has run rampant through my family and I myself have tested positive for BRCA1 the breast cancer gene. In 4-5 years I will be getting a preventitive double mastectomy and in 11 years I will have my ovaries removed to prevent cancer.

Is there a post on Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness this month? The last few years there's been a tab for breast cancer but nothing on PAIL Awareness. I think breast cancer awareness is incredibly important b/c I know of many women who have died and survived from this horrible disease but I think that PAIL awareness is just as important. I know it's taboo and ppl don't want to admit that babies die but they do and many women on CM have experienced this. So... is there one? I couldn't find it.
