The possibility of me having cancer at some point in my life outweighs the possibility of living a cancer free life. This is mainly based on genetics, as cancer is prominent in both my mother's and father's side of the family. I will have my first mammogram when I am 30 years old (10 years earlier than most women), as advised by my doctor,  because my mom had cancer. Unfortunately, she lost her battle, but I'm doing everything I can now to start using my weapons before war is even declared.

The most important thing a woman can do to stay on top of her health is do a monthly breast self exam. No one knows your body better than you do. To aid in that process, I found an amazing tool! It's small and comes in the form of jewelry - it's called a Breast Cancer Education Bracelet. Each bead on the bracelet represents a possible lump.  The largest bead is the size a mass in the breast is likely to be if a woman does not do monthly breast self exams and just notices the change in her breast one day. Smaller beads represent the average size of a cancer found by a mammogram and the average size of a mass found by a woman who performs monthly breast self exams. Not only is this a beautiful reminder to do breast self exams but a helpful tool!
