Breast Cancer Awareness

I'm gonna brag. Last year my daughter, Cyndi, did a 3 day-60 MILE walk for breast cancer. 20 miles a day for 3 days, camping at night. This took a whole lot of training.  Cyndi and her family live in Vacaville where she says "the sun is trying to kill them" so a lot of her training was done here. With me! Yay! Janesville's Wingfield road, Lassen Park, Lake Almanor, fantastic places to walk. Spending time with her is one of the greatest joys of my life. I don't remember how much she and her team raised but I couldn't be prouder of the commitment they all made toward finding a cure. 

We have women in Lassen County that have survived breast cancer and are always willing to share their stories.  So many women, here are two~
Sierra Jewelry owner and survivor, Sherry McBroome. You'd never guess what she's been through to look at her. While traveling back and forth to Reno for Chemo Sherry made blankets. Beautiful blankets. All to be donated to Lassen County Child Advocacy Center. These blankets "will bring comfort to children in Lassen County and that makes her (Sherry) happy". This makes me happy too. 
Then there is the irrepressible Joanne Sturgeon. A two time survivor. She and her family have started a new business, Jefferson Coffee. The coffee is roasted in Janesville, Joanne also makes chocolate covered coffee beans in her home kitchen. Very successful! So now the Sturgeons have added logo mugs. During October they will have PINK mugs to raise awareness for Breast Cancer! 

Banner Lassen has all the latest, greatest 3D mammography equipment and awesome, experienced techs. Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness month it's perfect time to schedule (or remind your loved one) a mammogram. Plus, all month they offer extended hours AND you get a goody bag with your appointment!  Early detection is everything.

Just a reminder to help us stay Hometown Healthy. Thank you to these Hometown Heroes, I know there are so many more...
