October 2011 Pamper Thyself
October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month, and chances are you know somebody who has been affected by this terrible disease. Research shows that 1 in 8 women in the U.S. will develop invasive breast cancer in her lifetime. This month, we ask that you pamper yourself or encourage someone you love to pamper herself with a self breast exam. Take a moment to learn your body, care for it, and give it the longest, healthiest life you can. Let’s help eradicate this disease one self-breast exam at a time!
NLT: Learning how to give yourself a breast exam doesn’t have to be too clinical. Download this free image from I Heart Guts and send it to someone (or everyone!) you love. It’s a great reminder of why the ‘girls’ need extra attention each month, and it is sure to bring a smile to those special women in your life.
What are some ways you have brought awareness to breast cancer or other causes/diseases? How can others help?
