Weekend Challenge: Breast Cancer Check

Friday, August 1, 2014

Did you know that 1 our of 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer?  There is a simple why to help catch it early and that is by performing a breast self exam once a month.  It is important to do at the same time every month as hormonal changes with your period will influence how your breasts feel.

The good people at CoppaFeel give you some tips here.  And they will even text you a reminder once a month.  If you follow me on Twitter, I send out a few reminders to reacquaint
yourself with your chest on the first of every month.

It might seem scary or morose to think about cancer but it is something that you are more likely to survive with early detection.  And since we don't want the men to feel left out....

Gentlemen,  I suggest checking yourselves on the first of the month too.  Men can also get breast cancer, but don't forget about the testicles too!
