Be Informed About Breast Cancer

This is a sponsored post by me on behalf of Lifescript.com.

Today, I'm writing about a subject very close to my heart. My Mother-In-Law Linda passed away from Breast Cancer almost five years ago. She was a wife, a mom to two grown boys and the Grandma to (at the time) four grand kids. She was a good friend too and always made time for those around her.

Linda was young at heart and full of life. She loved everyone around her and had a strong faith. She loved being a Grandma and it's always sad to me that she died before she got to see all of her grandchildren born. 

I knew that breast cancer was the most common form of cancer in women, but I didn't know that in 2007 over 200,000 women were diagnosed with breast cancer. That number is way too high. 

I have been looking through LifeScript.com and found vast amount of information about breast cancer. LifeScript.com provides medical information, tips and advice that are all written by professional health writers, experts and physicians.

On LifeScript there is a test you can take to access your risk. For me, having no family history of breast cancer, my risk is very low. But I still need to do self-exams and do what I can to lower my risk even more, by adjusting my daily activities. LifeScript talks about great natural ways to lower your risk of breast cancer

Knowing the symptoms of breast cancer can also help, here are a few: 
- a lump in the breast or armpit area
- a change in the shape or size of your breast
- a sore on the breast that doesn't heal
If notice these or any other symptoms, contact your doctor right away.

When we found out that Linda had breast cancer, the Internet was still fairly new to us and I remember not knowing much what it meant to have breast cancer. I sometimes think that we didn't do all that we could have to support her while she was going through all of this, just for lack of knowledge. With Lifescript you can find all of the information needed about breast cancer, including new advancements and treatments and great link for support sites.
