Day 5 Breast Cancer Commitment

Day 5 Breast Cancer Commitment and Fact that you might not know…plus something pink . 🙂

Day 5 of 31

Day 5 Commitment:

In 1810, the daughter of John and Abigail Adams, Abigail “Nabby” Adams Smith (1765-1813) was diagnosed with breast cancer. She underwent a grueling mastectomy—without anesthesia. Unfortunately, she still eventually died from the disease three years later.

I’m really enjoying my 31 day commitment.  I don’t know about you, but I’m learning a lot of facts about breast cancer that I didn’t know.  Hope you are following along and enjoying too!
