1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will be diagnosed with some form of cancer in their lifetime.
And if you want to support your favourite cancer cause, this could be a good time to review your personal insurance and get a donation made on your behalf too. Read Christie Birch's personal story about her mother's fight with cancer and contact them to ask how you can review your insurance and get a donation sent to your favourite cancer charity.
The message of course, is that early detection is the best weapon against cancer, so make this the week when you remember to take care of yourself.
And of course the collectors are out selling Legacy badges today. Our Newcastlecoffee Twitter group were glad to support the cause this morning at Sprocket Roasters cafe and all left with a new Legacy badge or pen in hand. If you see the collectors do give generously. Legacy is another organisation doing great things in the community to help families.
Oh ... and if you want to join us one Friday morning at our Twitter meeting, come along! You'll be welcome.
