I learned that 8 out of 10 lumps are benign. Thanks for the site, I am young but my doc wanted me to get a mammogram as a "baseline" and I just had it done yesterday. Everything's normal! Thanks for the giveaway and the information.

I never knew much about the stages of breast cancer and survival rates. It's a little scary, but reminds us that self-exams and early detection are very important to beating cancer.

Laura said...

The NBCF was founded by a breast cancer survivor, who was diagnosed when she was just 34 years old. So glad she persevered and set up this foundation to help others after her own struggle!

Lizzie said...

This is a great contest!

I learned that not exercising, eating lots of saturated fat, and drinking more than 2 alcoholic beverages a day can make you more susceptible to breast cancer. I didn't know that, I thought that it was genetic mostly.

Thanks! ecmorris@usc.edu
