  • I Will Survive

    October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and the idea is to educate women and men and to raise money for the cure, but here at EBN we recognize a full site awareness during the first week of November.

    November 2nd 2010 is just another day on the calendar to most.
    To the friends and family of Mom2bullies aka Myrna Dean it's a day we all started our battle against breast cancer.

    This November marks the 1 year anniversary of my mom's diagnosis. Although a whole year has gone by, her fight has just begun. To date, Mom2bullies has just finished her 8th round of chemo. She still has to endure a double mastectomy (tentative date for the first breast removal is Oct 11th) and radiation. My mom's battle with breast cancer has been tough and unforgiving.

    English Bulldog News has selected the first week of November as Breast Cancer Awareness week. During this week we hope to raise money to support the Susan G Komen for the Cure foundation. With your help, we hope to have a week filled with fun bidding and pull off a memorable milestone for EBN.

    Please take a moment to look and see if you have anything that you can donate for our upcoming auction. This is not just for mom2bullies. We have other members, family, friends and staff that are currently dealing with or have dealt with this disease.

    According to the American Cancer Society (ACS), in the United States breast cancer is the second most common cancer in women (after skin cancer) and the second leading cause of cancer death in women (after lung cancer). ACS estimated that 261,100 new cases of breast cancer (in situ and invasive cancers) were diagnosed among women in this country in 2010. Breast cancer affects one in eight women. It can be a highly curable disease if detected and treated early.

    Its important that women in their 20s see a doctor for a Clinical Breast Exam every three years and once a year after turning 40. Most doctors recommend annual mammograms for women 40 and older. Higher risk men and women should see their doctors more often.

    Please join us in our next fundraiser event.

    Much love,

      Also please contact @BruceP or @LariP to ship any donations you have, thank you! We will also be launching a real auction part of the forum, so we will not be auctioning in regular threads/topics. We cannot wait to show it all to you and to raise funds for breast cancer research. We will also be telling you all more on the first week of November about mom2bullies, and how it affected us as a community.
