Why are my bewbs on Twitter?!

October is breast cancer awareness month. Breast cancer is a very serious, very real problem. I don't need to tell you that, as most of us have been touched in some way by this cancer.

My Grandmother fought breast cancer and won. However, not without a very intimate battle wound. Even though she lost one of her breasts, she is still and forever will be, one of the strongest people I know. To her, losing only a breast, meant she round house kicked breast cancer right in it's ugly face. But for many, they are not so lucky. I have been reading story after story of loved ones lost. One in particular touched me and informed me. Through UberDorkGirlie's blog I was informed of BoobieThon.

People everywhere are posting pictures of their breasts to bring attention to the cause. Personally, I have been wanting to post pictures of my breasts since first hearing of BoobieThon, but knowing there was no way I'd be able to do it anonymously, I've held back. I'm covered in chest shouts for attention...

Then I think of all off the women, my grandmother included, who need attention brought to this cause. I think of myself and my daughter (and son!) who merely through genetics, may one day battle this disease. All of a sudden being anonymous is no longer an issue.! So, this proud Mommy, Daughter, Sister and Friend has decided to take and post a picture of her chest...Now bring on the attention! ♥

That is just lovely. Mine (as soon as my camera batteries are charged) are not nearly so interesting.
