Mortgage Porter is in the PINK

Do not adjust your screen, Mortgage Porter is pink during October to recognize National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  If you’re a long time reader of this blog, you know that breast cancer has taken two wonderful ladies from our office.  Both were around 40 years young and neither had cancer in their family.  Breast cancer does not discriminate, men may be diagnosed with this disease as well. 

In addition to the pink background, I have a button you click on the left which will help provide free mammograms.  (All you need to do is click the button–that’s it!)

Want to do more?  Start with your own self-exam and consider a donation of your time or money.  You can also help spread the word by going pink!

A special thanks to Mike Mueller for adding the pink ribbon to my mug shot and to Jay Thompson for giving me the idea of pinking out Mortgage Porter.
