Day 18: One of my treasures- my late, great mother Jan's pink butterfly pin. Happy Birthday Mom!

Today's breast cancer fact, courtesy Susan G. Komen for the Cure:
From the 1940s until the 1980s, the rate of new cases of breast cancer in the United States increased by a little over one percent a year. In the 1980s, incidence rose dramatically (likely due to increased mammography screening), then leveled off during the 1990s. The incidence of breast cancer declined in the early 2000s. Since 2003, the incidence of breast cancer has remained stable.
