Pass the Pink Penguin....Pretty please???



I just visited the blog of my namesake - Juliana and the pink penguin caught my attention. Look at it??? Isn't it adorable? Aside from being the adorable penguin that it is, it also has a very important mission....to spread "Breast Cancer Awareness" since October is actually the month dedicated to spreading breast cancer awareness.

I personally know someone who passed on because of breast cancer. She was the Academic Coordinator in the school where I taught for some years. She became a mother figure to us. She would prepare us lunch and would invite us for dinner in her place. She fought really hard, ufortunately, she passed on after a few years of being diagnosed.

I have no family history of this disease but this is not an indication that I'm not a candidate because 80% of those diagnosed don't have the history as well. So it's really a good thing that a month is reserved for the awareness of breast cancer. It may not make me go for a mammogram right away but it's sure good to be reminded every now and then that this disease does not target a single age bracket or ethnicity.

So if you're reading this, please grab that Pink Penguin and let's all do a shout out for Breast Cancer awareness. Who knows, the life we may save may be our very own.
