I want to say a quick 'yay!' for last week's contest winners: Krystal, Lindsey, Hannah, and Taylor!

And now on to something else.

This month is Ovarian Cancer Awareness month. Ovarian cancer is the 5th most likely cause of cancer-related death in women, and yet there remains no specific test that can accurately determine if a woman has ovarian cancer. Please consider participating in the Break the Silence program, which aims to find a way to earlier diagnosis, and offers information to help women talk to their doctor about any symptoms they may have.

I think it's very important to raise awareness about these types of issues as well. The conversation starter was really useful! Here in NZ it's Blue September to raise awareness and for prostate cancer: http://www.blueseptember.co.nz/

Oh just this week I was looking up Ovarian cancer to do research on it.(and I had no clue that it was Ovarian Cancer Awareness month) And then I came across an article about a local university near my house getting a grant for Ovarian research. How ironic! lol

Thanks for the links!
