Pretty Pink for Cancer Awareness

By Marica

We recently spotted a post on the Decorex blog reminding us that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. In the post they list a few local initiatives that contribute towards the cancer cause and not only gives back to those affected but also funds research. Read their blog post: here. Please also consider supporting the cause directly by pledging a donating on the CANSA website: here.

I also feel that as ladies we have a personal duty to create awareness within our inner circles – the word of a friend carries far greater weight than that of impersonal third party.

Here is a quick and worthy example: The first Monday of every month I have “Cook Club” – a joyful gathering where eight like-minded ladies socialize over great food and excellent company. We generally have a rip-roaring good time with a good measure of side-splitting laughter. At this month’s gathering one of the lovely ladies plucked out a plastic bag filled with intriguing yet hidden goodies and ominously said: “Pick one, but beware – each has a consequence.

One by one we cautiously stuck our hand in the mysterious bag and blindly picked an item – which all turned out to be some kind of body-care product. She then went on to explain the consequence (or rather commitment) of each item picked. The ladies who picked the lotion had to commit to administering a breast self-examination, those who picked the lip balm had to do the same AND additionally tell a friend. Two ladies (of which I am one) chose the room spray which we leant meant scheduling an appointment with a gynae within the next year, and so it went on…

Don’t you agree that this is an unthreatening and fun way to create cancer awareness? Why not try it on your girlfriends this October…

You can read more about breast cancer awareness and prevention on the CANSA website: here.
