With the end of October just around the corner we make another impassioned attempt to remind you about breast cancer and the need to stay ahead of it and to have mammograms and do self exams.  Early detection is the best protection.

There are always so many wonderful promotions related to breast cancer during the month of October and this one would be a great Christmas idea as well. After all you can’t be reading all of the time, especially when you are driving.  Okay you can listen to books on tape which by the way we highly recommend, it makes a great gift too.  But I digress.  Why not give the gift of music?

Garth Brooks is back for a short time only according to the recording star. He has just released a three disc album that $10.00 of the proceeds go to Susan G. Komen and that is a great gift idea indeed.

Go to, http://ww5.komen.org/garth/ to learn more about Garth’s Ultimate Hits CD and DVD album.  You have to purchase the “Pink Edition” which is available on the Susan G. Komen site for pre-order and will ship next week. 

Thanks Garth!


Favre looses to the Bears but Deanna Favre has Hope

While we were glued to our TV sets yesterday watching Bears vs. Packers game, Go Bears!,  did you know that Brett’s wife, Deanna, fought her own battle. Diagnosed at 35, Deanna has thus far triumphed over this disease.  She is a great spokesperson for this disease and the need for those under forty to be aware. 

Deanna has a new book out titled, Don’t Bet Against Me, and a new foundation to continue to battle this disease.  Hope Foundation is dedicated to helping those  http://www.amazon.com/Dont-Bet-against-Me-Beating/dp/141431907X/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/102-3250599-2297703?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1191851513&sr=8-1

This is just one of the many books out there about breast cancer.  It is October and that is breast cancer awareness month and we at 24/8 Book Club always want you to remember the magic found inside of a book so why not combine the two.   We will bring you more books during the month that touch on breast cancer. 

In the meantime visit the Hope Foundation website, http://www.deannafavre4hope.com/hopefoundation/about+the+hope+foundation/default.asp to learn more about Deanna’s story and this wonderful foundation she has begun.
