Props to Moodswinging Mommy

Props to Moodswinging Mommy today, who kicked off some Makeover Monday Madness this week with a big feature on IBC and Team WhyMommy! She’s issuing a challenge to all her readers this week to join Team WhyMommy and get OFF THE COUCH and do their breast self-exams! She’s even got a Mr. Linky up over there, to make it easy for you to tell her when you’ve done it. Now that’s genius. If only I’d set up a Mr. Linky, I wouldn’t be chasing you all over the blogosphere searching for your posts.πŸ™‚

Point being, if you haven’t done it, go visit Moodswinging Mommy today, or grab my original text, post it on your blog or send it to your friends, and let us know that you’ve done your part to spread the word about this nasty little breast cancer that spreads and kills — without a lump. I’ll wait here while you do it, and then I’ll post your name and link on my blog (and Canape‘s) after you’re done.

Here’s a great list of a dozen other bloggers who spread the word about inflammatory breast cancer this week. Hurrah for them all!

    So glad about the chemo working! I’m doing better than a self exam, so I am recusing myself from that. But I will keep my WhyMommy button until you WIN!!

    i think i read you’re a member of the A-list? if so, then you probably got news today that Patti’s daughter Tina passed away. i don’t know how long you’ve been connected with the small IBC community on the internet, but losing Tina is a pretty big deal (to me anyway). but just in case you get ruffled at stuff like that (is still do), remember there are others out here that are still here. we don’t all die from this horrible disease!

    im 25 and i have a lump under my armpit. it has been there with no changes since april. i initially thought it was from breast feeding and now i think its a lymph node. ive never really been big on breast exams. but now i check for changes every month. i has my annual with my doctor 2 months ago and he didnt say anything about it. and i didnt either because i am to scared.

  12. NoRegrets says:

    Hope you are doing ok.

  13. twithhoney says:

    Wow! The word is really getting around. You may be feeling miserable and exhausted but you’re getting more accomplished through this blog than I do at work everyday.

  14. I put your story on my blog – http://www.notbefore7.com. Hope to help get the word out! Thank you for your passion.
