Your Risk of Breast Cancer and Your Hormones

Last month was breast cancer awareness month. Every month, though 1 in every 8 women is diagnosed. This continues a conversation worth revisiting about hormones and breast cancer. 

Breast cancer. You are on one side of it or the other. You’ve either been there and heard “you have breast cancer.” Perhaps you never have heard those words and tend to skip your mamo or thermo tests thinking it won’t happen to you. 

Your Breast Cancer Connection

No matter which side you’re on, you know someone, chances are you love someone who’s had it. So it’s relevant to all of us with moms, daughters, sisters, aunts, nieces and partners.

Before we dive into it today, this episode is brought to you by The Flipping 50 Fitness Specialist. Right now there has never been a better time to become a trainer or health coach serving women in midlife and or to make your business and life something you love and look forward to.

Flipping 50 is the first and only hormone balancing fitness membership for women in perimenopause through post menopause. I created the Flipping 50 Fitness Specialist to give trainers and health coaches a business system and a directory where we hook them up with trainers who know how to make women better not just tired.
