We all think pink every October, and the awareness of breast cancer prevention is just a part of life. That said, we still have so far to go. I have to be honest and admit that as a woman over 40, I am not doing all that I should be.


I went to my 25th high school reunion this summer, and as I was connecting with people, I found out that one of my dear friends was treated for breast cancer about five years ago. I was floored. I have two other friends my age who had breast cancer before 40. I didn’t walk through it with them either, but I think there was something about my friend — my high school friend who I still remember as a teen girl — that brought it so close to home.
