November Check Your Boobies

November is a time to give thanks, and what a better thing to be thankful for, than good health for you and your family.

Before you sit down with family and friends this month to give thanks, make sure and take some time for yourself and Check Your Boobies!

For help learning how to properly Check Your Boobies, chick here.

Remember, early detection is key, so if you find anything new or different while doing your breast-self exam, we urge you to go to your healthcare provider ASAP.

Have a happy a healthy holiday season!

Think Before Your Pink: October 2014

Before the Media Mania of Pink October Breast Cancer Awareness Month starts a few things CYB would like you to remember!

1. There is no ONE thing that will cure or prevent breast cancer, it is a complicated disease and everyone of us is different.

2. There is no ONE thing that causes breast cancer. In fact the truth is we DON’T KNOW what causes breast cancer – we have lots of theories and know about lots of things that MAY point to the answer but reality is WE DON’T KNOW.

3. There is no miracle pill, vegetable, fruit, meat, bean, grain, exercise, breathing technique or ‘way’ to prevent it.

4. IF IT SOUNDS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE IT IS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE!

So what do we do when confronted with all the news and information we get hit with, what do we believe, what do we keep and what do we toss.

If they discover that eating chocolate reduces your risk for breast cancer (my personal dream come true!) then acknowledge that is a great discovery and don’t feel guilty when you eat some chocolate IN MODERATION!!!!

If something is showing promise as a risk reduction or preventative step than find a way to incorporate some of it into your lifestyle – do not forsake all others to replace it with the new found miracle. Chances are in a few years we will learn that it has a bad side to it also.

Just because it increases or decreases your risk for breast cancer does not mean that it is all bad or all good. Birth control pills may increase your risk for breast cancer BUT they also can DECREASE your risk for ovarian cancer.

Question everything!!!!!!!!!!! And take what you hear and see with an acknowledgement that because of all this awareness we now have people working on trying to find answers and find a cure or a preventative answer to this horrible disease.

In the meantime:

Eat lots of vegetables! The more the better.

Get exercise of some kind every day – just move – get up and stretch, walk around your chair, do anything do something! Get that lymphatic system moving!

Moderation and Variety – enjoy life and mix it up a bit!

Everything else is debatable and will be debated for months and years to come. Make the best and healthiest decision you can for you and your family at the time you are making it and then move on.

Here’s to a future without breast cancer – or any cancer for that matter! Until then STAY SMART – STAY INFORMED AND

LIVE EACH DAY TO THE FULLEST!

July Check Your Boobies

One in eight women will get breast cancer in their lives. This means all women need to be equipped with the information and knowledge necessary to protect their health. CYB is all about giving healthy woman the education and tools for early detection of breast cancer for the best outcomes.

Who cares about your health more than you do? No one. This means we must all be self-advocates, making sure we take control over our health. Doctors can downplay risk, miss symptoms, or under-order tests; when a woman takes charge of her health, she can get the care she needs.

Self-advocacy around breast health can take several forms: through knowing your breasts and genetics, doing breast self-exams, getting recommended mammograms, and knowing what to ask your doctor. And getting into action about your health reduces fear!

Take action today and CHECK YOUR BOOBIES!

SUCCESS STORIES ABOUT CHECKING YOUR BOOBIES! READ THE THIRD IN OUR SERIES OF SURVIVOR PROFILES BY DEBRA M.

My journey with breast cancer started in 2007, on my 31st birthday. I detected the lump myself, not during a routine check, but purely by accident. So many emotions overcame me, I didn’t know what to do. I never thought this could happen to me. After all, I am young, active and consistent with my physicals. I was so scared. I saw my fragile life flash before me, and truly thought it was the end. Little did I know, it was just another journey in life–a new beginning. Click here to read Debra’s story.
