Almost 3 years ago, I lost my mom to cancer, it was the worst day of my life.  Six months before, I lost my grandmother to cancer, it all seemed a blur to me, it was too soon, I was sad, I was grieving and I think about both of those amazing women every day and miss them more than I can put into words.

Scientists, physicians, and community partners in the Breast Cancer and the Environment Research Program (BCERP), which is supported by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), study the effects of environmental exposures on breast cancer risk later in life. They created a mother-daughter toolkit (http://bit.ly/BCERPtoolkit) mothers can use to talk to daughters about steps to take together to reduce risk.

Cancer and the risks is something you can never be too careful about, sometimes there is no way to avoid it but we can all take certain steps and measures to at least try and prevent it!

As someone who has lost too many people to cancer, I feel it’s important to always be aware and take whatever steps you can in life, as it’s short!

Research is so important and I would be so appreciative if you could take a quick survey to help out!
