Did you know?
Friday October 16, 2009 is National Mammography Day
(i'm sorry I'm late, but it does include the entire month)
The third Friday in October of each year is National Mammography Day, first proclaimed by President Clinton in 1993. On this day, or throughout the month, radiologists provide free or discounted screening mammograms, and women are encouraged to make a mammography appointment.
Make your appointment please.
Clicking on anyone of these buttons is the simplest way there is to fund free mammograms. You can sign up for a daily email that'll take you to the Breast Cancer Site and even before you've had your first sip of coffee or tea, you will have done a good thing. Helped another.
My store is named after my sister Lindy, my inspiration. Lindy and my Mom, Sylvia, are Breast Cancer Survivors. This is one small way I can help raise money for Breast Cancer Research. TheBreastCancerSite.com together with the Mayo Clinic has created
Daughter's, Auntie's, Friends, ourselves...

Under The Blood Red Sky
And because Tessa says it so beautifully, I hope she won't mind that I borrow these words from her...There are so many remarkable women whose blog company I treasure and whom I have grown to think of as true friends during our exchanges in this amazing world even though I may never have actually met them in person. Someday, somewhere, I hope we will meet, but in the meantime I would love to pass this friendship award on to these very special ladies and men in acknowledgement of how much I value their visits to, and comments on my Lori Times Five world.
