I {heart} BOOBS + Giveaway!


October is breast cancer awareness month but we need to be aware year round!
Growing up my mother made it clear that as I was getting older it was important to do your self breast exam once a month when I was in the shower...at times she even hung up a waterproof card with a boob on it with instructions! 
I never really took it seriously until I was married with kids. I have had lumps found and checked with (thankfully) nothing found...I guess I have lumpy breasts! Regardless I will continue to check and be checked! 
You can say "feel you boobs", "check your chest" and "get a mammy" (mammogram) all you want but if you aren't actually doing these things you are doing yourself and your family a disservice. 
About 1 in 8 U.S. women (just under 12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. Source
What I'm doing (and YOU CAN DO) to reduce the risk of breast cancer:
  • I choose to #livepink  everyday and check myself!
  • I choose to breastfeed to help prevent breast cancer.
  • I choose to stay active to reduce my risk.
  • I choose to be alcohol free to help my chances at being cancer free!
Early prevention is key!

    tіtle? I mean, I ԁon't want to tell you how to run your blog, but what if you added something that grabbed folk's
