Not such a red-letter day but a reminder to get your mammogram. Yes, I know there was a study that said women don’t need an annual mammogram. There is other information that says it is the right thing to do. Here is the link to the Susan G. Komen site http://ww5.komen.org/ and the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. http://www.nationalbreastcancer.org/. Good link to Time magazine about the controversy. http://wellness.blogs.time.com/2009/11/17/new-mammogram-recommendations-spark-controversy-and-confusion/
Last night I went to a fundraiser for Web of Benefit which is a nonprofit organization that helps women affected by domestic violence. It was a wonderful presentation and their philosophy is unique. “Web of Benefit operates under a “pay it forward” philosophy, where each woman assisted contributes to the Web of Benefit network by doing three good works, on whatever level she is able, for other women in need.” thus truly extending the web. The founder’s clear statement about women achieving their dreams was impressive.
Go to their website http://www.webofbenefit.org/ or find them on Facebook – Web of Benefit. It was a lovely evening put together by a group of women committed to finding non-profits that are exceptional and focusing their own grassroots fundraising on these organizations. More about them later.
