What’s the value of a breast? You know, how much is a breast worth?
I’m not talking about the combo meal with two sides and a soft drink at your local fast food store; I’m talking about a woman’s breast. How much is it worth?
Truth be told, I don’t know.
Since I don’t know, this next question might seem strange but how much is two breasts worth? If one breast is a certain value is the second worth a premium or a discount?
Once again, I must declare, I don’t know.
How much is a life worth? What is the value of a mother, a sister, a daughter, a lover, a friend or a wife?
During the year 2014, 200,000 women will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer. They and their families will come face to face with these questions. Some of these women will have to lose a breast; some will be forced to give up both. Some of these women will die.
Is it too much to know the value of their sacrifices?
We don’t know the answers because we don’t know enough about this disease.
Helen and I are trying to help change that; we ask you to join us. We have set a goal to raise $200,000.00 in 2014. We started on Valentine’s Day and will continue till next February 14th. We want to raise one dollar for each woman diagnosed during this year.
We are offering an eBook, “The Ghost in the Mini Skirt” and for each copy downloaded this year, one dollar will be sent to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. The eBook sells for $3.99.
Is helping to save a life or even a breast or two worth a few dollars? We and a few hundred thousand mothers, sisters, daughters, lovers, friends, and wives (and their families) hope so.
