Mind of a Diva is raising awareness and urging women to join the fight against breast cancer. We want to help people everywhere to have a better understanding about this disease and how to prevent it. It’s our hope that by educating others we are contributing to preventing someone from being diagnosed with breast cancer and helping researchers to find a cure.
Below are links to sites about breast cancer awareness, prevention, and ways to help support the cause. There’s also a diagram about how to properly perform a monthly self-examination to check for lumps. Hopefully we can all join together and win this fight against breast cancer.
