Breast cancer, and some of the genes believed to cause it are in the news lately thanks to Angelina Jolie. Our hearts go out to her family after hearing of the loss of her aunt due to breast cancer. On a personal note, my first mammogram came back clean recently.
Too many women have died, and I believe the way to reduce future tragedies is with information and early detection. Most American women cannot get a gene test to find out for sure if they are at risk. Mammograms are just one of the tools to keep women healthy, but not always possible for the uninsured, or under-insured. Breast exams are something we all can do on our own. Breast cancer is an area of awareness that should be promoted, especially in a novel way.
It’s been along time since I enjoyed a job with benefits. But luckily, I have been fortunate enough to be fairly healthy. One day my luck will run out. And I will go to work sick, as there is no other option.
Is there hope for us workaday wage slaves with no health insurance, or sick time? According to this email, things are looking up!
Life is fast paced and stressful, and the modern woman has a ton of tasks on her daily list between work, friends and family. I wonder what could possibly make women remember to take care of themselves, to overcome their natural inclination to put their health last?

I woke this morning to the good news. President Obama had one a hard fought, long battle to stay in the White House for four more years. I cannot stay up late, I have to man my post at work very early, so the news came as a pleasant start to my day.
As someone who believes in good sportsmanship, I refrained from crowing my pleasure, only giving in to one positive tweet:
After all the ups and downs, dog-whistles, and ridiculousness of the GOP Primary, and horribly divisive Romney campaign filled with fact averse statements, and the most pumped up media coverage of a presidential race to date, America chose to stay the course. Continue reading →
Scott Brown was asked to name his model Supreme Court Justice at a debate versus Elizabeth Warren. Scott Brown’s answer? Antonin Scalia, the same judge who said he was “adamantly opposed” to Roe v. Wade. Who also opposes equal protection for women. Who even opposes the right to contraception. Continue reading →
