Good morning to you! It's time again to think Pink Up. Breast cancer is a leading cause of cancer death in U.S. women. Take the time today and on the 12th of every month to do a self-exam.

Watch The Breakfast Show this morning and Heartland News at 5 today for this month's Pink Up story about a group of high school swimmers that raised money for local women to receive free mammograms. Christy Millweard talked to girls on the Cape Central swim team about why they wanted to raise the money.

You can also eat more whole grains to help lower risk of cancer. A diet rich in whole grains may help curb your risk of colon cancer and other diseases. Plus, whole grains have lots of fiber. And, fiber helps you stay full longer, maintain a healthy weight, and keep your cholesterol and blood sugar at healthy levels.  

Tell your friends to sign up to receive this monthly newsletter to remind them to do their self-breast exam.
