Salmon with Blueberries (Pink recipe for Breast Cancer awareness)

I developed this recipe to help raise awareness for Breast Cancer, after a close friend was diagnosed with breast cancer. She became one of the statistics, one of the eight women who get breast cancer in their lifetime and the 1/2074 who are diagnosed under 40 years old. For me, this was my third friend under 40.

The disease is likely to be much more aggressive in young women and is often found at later stages, as detection in this age group is based on self-examination. Breast Cancer Awareness month is to remind us all to perform these checks and to give insight into what it’s like to be diagnosed, treated and live with Breast Cancer. My full awareness post can be read here.
