This is not the easiest post to write, and its probably not going to be the easiest post for a lot of you to read, but it is so very important.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and I think probably most of us at some point have been affected by Cancer in some way. My sister was diagnosed with Breast Cancer a while ago, but thankfully she is completely fine now.
Cancer charity, The Pink Ribbon Foundation are encouraging women and men to check themselves regularly, and to be aware of the signs to look out for.
Would you know how to check yourself? I must admit that I don’t know how to do it correctly, and its not something I do very often at all, but we should all be much more aware of checking our own bodies for things that aren’t quite right, and not feel embarrassed about it – ultimately it could safe your life.
The Pink Ribbon Foundation have produced this amazing little guide below on how to check your breasts . . .
1 in every 8 women will be diagnosed with Breast Cancer in her lifetime, so its so very important to regularly check your breasts, and if you find anything that you know isn’t normal for you, or anything that you are concerned about, get it checked out by your GP as soon as possible.
The survival rate for Breast Cancer has dramatically increased in recent years, so early checking is so important.
So, come on guys and girls, lets get checking those boobs, and lets kick Breast Cancer’s arse!
