Cupcakes for healthy “cupcakes”
C-Squared’s Cupcake Crawl

I recently had an annual mammogram, which is not something I look forward to, but know it’s one of those necessary evils for women over 40. So while I was standing in a cold radiologists office in a very thin, vented hospital gown, with my boob in a “vice,” my mind traveled to one of my happy places – thoughts of cupcakes. Then it hit me… I wonder if anyone makes breast cancer awareness cupcakes. Hence, I was on a quest.
But I didn’t have to travel far. Low and behold, the very next day, I walked into my local grocery store and was greeted by a beautiful pink cupcake display to honor breast cancer awareness month. Weis Supermarket in Laurel, Maryland, had a great display with balloons, streamers and most importantly, strawberry-flavored cupcakes.
What a wonderful way to commemorate this important cause. As delicious as the cupcakes are, however, they serve as a sober reminder of how breast cancer needs to be routed out; it’s taken far too many wonderful women from us.

I know all too well from recent personal experience how important these check-ups are.
