October 2011 Pamper Thyself

Breast Cancer Ribbon

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?
