October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Hi Lesbiatopians, Pugs here from the Sex Slog with Busy Beaver and Pugs. I’m not here with sex advice but hey, keep those questions coming! Beaver loves talking about sex almost as much as she loves doing it! Send your questions to: love@cometogethergiftbaskets.com

Instead, I’m here to help my friend Westie raise money for The Breast Cancer 3 Day Walk. If you haven’t heard of the 3 Day, let me tell you, its amazing. The 3 Day is held in 14 cities throughout the US and participants travel an average of 20 miles a day for 3 days. The 3 Day will benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure®, which is leading the global movement to end breast cancer forever, by funding research and community outreach programs.

My friend Westie is a survivor of breast cancer so this fight is personal for her. I met and became friends with Westie at OurChart last year. I’ve since met her wife and son and she’s met my two boys. One of the things I admire most about Westie is her passion to walk 60 miles in 3 days! But in order to do that, she has to raise $2200. She’s been doing this Walk for 9 years but this year she needs a little help in collecting donations. So she’s put together a video showing the highlights of last year’s walk. After you watch the vid, please click HERE to go to Westie’s donation page. Anything you can give will be greatly appreciated. And remember, it might just be YOU, your wife, your lover, your mom or your sister that you’re helping by sponsoring a stranger to walk 60 miles.

Thanks Pugs - you're the best.

It's true ladies, you all have a 1 in 8 chance of developing breast cancer. Don't become a statistic. Monthly self-exams and yearly check-ups with the doc can save your life --- it saved mine.

Thanks for the chance to share this here - I appreciate the support.

As an odd note, to the guys out there who read our site- check your chest too! Men get Breast Cancer too. Vermont has two male state cops (they were profiled on the news lately) who developed breast cancer.

But, Pugs, thanks for the heads up. My sister's mother in law is a breast cancer survivor.
