While women who have a family history of breast cancer are in a higher risk group, most women who have breast cancer have no family history. If you have a mother, daughter, sister, or grandmother who had breast cancer, you should have a mammogram five years before the age of their diagnosis, or starting at age 35.
You should have a physical every year. If any unusual symptoms or changes in your breasts occur before your scheduled visit, do not hesitate to see the doctor immediately. (www.nationalbreastcancer.org)
I am pleased to be able to introduce you to Alegria Shoes. When I found the Classic Red Scribble shoe, I asked Alegria if they would be willing to be a part of our Cancer Awareness Week on Three Different Directions, and they generously agreed.
They sent me a pair of the Red Scribble shoes to walk in, and they are just so fun . I love that, because cancer is such a devastating disease, and these shoes just put a smile on your face, and lift your spirits.
The shoes fit true to size in length, if you have a bit wider of a foot (like I do) they are a bit narrow just at the lower toe, when you first put them on. After wearing them for a few days, I stretched them out, and they are comfortable. In fact, they are so comfortable, I can wear them all day. I’m glad I gave them a chance after first trying them on, because I would have missed out on a great pair of shoes otherwise!
The Mild Rocker Outsole on the shoe, is engineered to roll naturally, reducing heel and central metatarsal pressure. It also encourages proper posture and normal gait. Perfect for people who are on their feet all day.
If you are looking for comfy, quality shoes, from a company that gives back, check out all the styles that Alegria has to offer.
How Alegria makes a difference:

They are a proud partner with the National Breast Cancer Foundation Inc. and have designated their best selling Red Scribble signature clog to support the cause.
