5. Breast Cancer Awareness Month: The popular children's author, Judy Blume, announced that she was battling breast cancer last month.  And in her blog she writes about her struggles, and her hope:

"As I've told my friends who've also been treated for breast cancer, I've joined The Club -- not one I wanted to join or even thought I would ever be joining -- but here I am. I’m part of this Sisterhood of the Traveling Breast Cells (apologies to Ann Brashares). Medical diagnoses can leave you feeling alone and scared. When it comes to breast cancer you’re not alone, and scary though it is, there’s a network of amazing women to help you through it."

-Judy Blume
