October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month across the globe. It almost seems silly that it still includes the word “Awareness” because I don’t think there is any other cancer more publicised, more known to people, than breast cancer.

I tried to find a reliable and certified massage therapist who offered in-home massage and didn’t charge a crazy price but that always seemed to be just out of reach.
