    In The Pink

    It is breast cancer awareness month and I have a good friend who I am supporting in the Walk for a Cure event. Over lunch one day, we laughed over the fact that manufacturers were getting a little carried away with the color pink.

    Now I understand it is to bring awareness and I'm not knocking it. But this led to a friendly text message game between us. For the past two weeks, we've been texting each other each time we see something totally outrageous. For example: pink tic-tacs, a pink maglite flashlight, pink toilet paper (no really! this was to promote breast cancer awareness, not just pink in color to match decor!) Yesterday, she texted to let me know she picked up a prescription with a pink ribbon embossed on the lid.

    This is all in fun....what unlikely pink things have you seen lately?

    YEs, but does it have a pink ribbon on it? I'm looking for products specifically packaged to raise awareness.

    While looking after your health, don't forget skin cancer.

    I've lost two friends to skin cancer and both were needless deaths since if caught early melanoma or squamous cell skin cancer is curable.

    I've had 5 surgeries for skin cancer due to overexposure to the sun. Thankfully all mine were basal cell types, which can disfigure but are not lethal.

    If you haven't been to a dermatologist in a while, make an appointment for a skin cancer screening.

    PS: guys, get your PSA blood tests done.
