I’ve been watching Major League Soccer with great interest this month, mainly because my team is on a hot streak. It would be hard to watch any MLS game this month and not realize that it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Numerous players are sporting the pink armbands; the normal ball has been replaced with a white and pink ball, and the MLS website had an all bright-pink theme up until yesterday.
In recognition of this month long theme I wanted to share the short video below of Romney discussing breast cancer and research funding. I don’t know the name of the forum that this took place in, but it was while he was a Presidential candidate in November 2007.
Breast cancer hits close to home for many of us. My aunt, Ann Summers, a great woman with whom I worked for many years fell victim to breast cancer a couple years ago – she was in her late fifties. She was well loved, and is greatly missed.
Early detection is key. This lesson is taught to us by another Ann that we all know and love: Ann Romney. The future FLOTUS was diagnosed with breast cancer in late 2008 while in its very early stages. She discussed her diagnosis and treatment in a Fox and Friends interview she did with her husband in January of this year.
