Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU to everyone who joined in to be part of this Pink Post and support the fight against breast cancer. I will be donating $10 on behalf of each of you to the CAROL ANN READ BREAST CENTER, a place near and dear to my heart. I've had a lump for 10+ years and because I discovered it when I was so young it was always assumed that it was benign. Well 3 years ago, while I was in grad school and under-insured the lovely folks at this center held my hand, hugged me, checked in on me, did a biopsy on the lump and gave me a mammogram all for FREE! I am so grateful that everything was/is benign and so grateful that a place exists that a woman with little to no insurance can go and know that she will be taken care of. Now that I have insurance and a full time job, $100 is the least I can do to help the next under-insured lady who walks through those doors.
