Strength of 1

I’ve tried to make sure I get the annual cancer screenings recommended by my doctor. I get my pap smears. I’m not always as good about the breast self exams as I should be. Fortunately, I have not had any reason to be concerned so far. Despite these good results, I will continue to get my scheduled exams. Early detection is a huge factor in the fight against.

Now through the end of October, 2012, the makers of Freschetta® pizza are helping to promote breast cancer awareness through their new The Strength of 1™ campaign, which includes sponsoring Bright Pink, the only national non-profit organization focusing on the prevention and early detection of breast and ovarian cancer in young women, while providing support to high-risk individuals. The mission of this The Strength of 1™ initiative is to inspire everyone to realize they can make a difference in some way in the fight against breast cancer.

How did I make a difference today? I took the pledge. I enrolled in monthly reminders to do self exams. I’m spreading the word. It’s that simple.
