Friday Pick - October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month - "Create for a Cause"
So today's pick comes directly from the Rings & Things newsletter which has been coming out in a "news flash" version recently. It's a short, topical email and doesn't come so often that you feel spammed (like some of the almost daily clothing store emails I get in return for having foolishly bought my daughter something trendy on-line, from some not to be named stores *cough delias, urban outfitter, abercrombie cough*).
If you aren't already getting the Rings & Things newsletter, I recommend them - you can see 'back issues' and also subscribe, by clicking here. Anyway, I asked if it would be ok to just copy and paste their newsletter copy here as my Friday Pick and they said ok.
The only edit to their copy that I've added is the link to the official Breast Cancer Awareness Month site. I'm 52 now and just this year had my first mammogram. There's no history of breast cancer in my family (skin cancer, yes) but I still should have had one sooner. With the new digital mammography being used at my provider, the exam was a lot less annoying than I had assumed from what I'd heard about x-ray mammography.
