Can’t LIVE Without…Breast and Sex (or Supporting Research for Breast Cancer and HIV/AIDS)

It’s October and for as long as I can,  remember when living  back east that meant two things- Breast Cancer Walk and HIV/AIDS Walk. People, self included, were participating in either or both events to help raise awareness and money to research cures for both. I long for the day when the cures have been found and are made accessible to every person on the planet who needs it regardless of race, gender, nationality, class, sexual orientation, or creed. And as a woman, the numbers of diagnosis for both breast cancer and HIV/AIDS is mighty high. So wear your pink and your red, sign up for a walk or race, get your boo and your bff to join you, and also make sure your getting screened and tested (so many places offer free HIV testing, and just an FYI, sex is just one way you can contract HIV). Your health is your responsibility! xxoo
