Day 25: Angela's "31 Days of Pink: Project for a Purpose"

Day 25: One of my favorite treats- a pink cake pop from Starbucks.

Today's breast cancer fact, courtesy Susan G. Komen for the Cure: Similar to women, men with an inherited mutation in the BRCA2 gene have an increased risk of breast cancer. Men who carry a BRCA2 mutation have about a seven percent chance of developing breast cancer by age 70. BRCA2 carriers are also at an increased risk for other types of cancer, such as prostate cancer. Men can inherit a BRCA2 from either parent. A man who is a BRCA2 carrier can pass the mutation on to both his male and female children.

Coming tomorrow, a Halloween week giveaway from a fabulous sponsor! Hint: In the blog post, I will take you on a journey into "Wonderland".
