Breast cancer awareness is a personal issue for me because I lost a friend to it. She fought it twice, but the second time it spread so quickly. I miss her and I pray someday that we will find a cure to this awful disease. I also have friends who have battled breast cancer and won. It's all around us.
To prevent breast cancer, I use aluminum-free deodorant (sometimes DIY, sometimes commercially produced) to reduce the heavy metals absorbed into my body in the area of my chest and upper body. I'm also looking into less restrictive, less tight bra options like Stickeebra to allow better circulation. As a mom who prioritizes breastfeeding, I want to keep my breasts in good health not just for myself but also for my children.
