.: Got Boobies? :.

Tho I am a girl, I am no big fan of the colour pink.

But if you look at the top right of my blogspace, you would see a pink ribbon running across it, that says "Got Boobies?"

Well, I would bear with this strip of pink as it is for a good cause.

If you have not read my earlier blog bout what you need to do to safeguard your assets, albeit your boobs, well, you should.

I, for one am a very sceptical person (it has to do with my auditing background), hence to convince you, let the statistics below do all the talking.

Breast cancer is the SECOND most common cancer among women.

Breast cancer is the SECOND leading cause of death in women.

80% - 85% of breast cancer cases happen in women with NO FAMILY HISTORY of breast cancer.

The chances of women getting breast cancer is
1 in 2,000 from age 20 to age 30
1 in 229 from age 30 to age 39
1 in 68 from age 40 to age 49
1 in 37 from age 50 to age 59
1 in 26 from age 60 to age 69
1 in 8 from after the age of 70

And because of this incident rate, in the year 2010, 1.5 million people will be told they have breast cancer!

Now, before all this facts and numbers scare you, here's something that should comfort you - 89% of women diagnosed with breast cancer are still alive 5 years after their diagnosis!

89%... that's a GREAT ODD!

Now of course, the key is none other than EARLY DETECTION!

In a nutshell : GOT BOOBIES? THEN YOU SHOULD CHECK 'EM! (a online blogshop) has listed out the THREE STEPS on how to do a breast self-examination!

And guess what? By just posting a blog entry about this Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign, has generously contributed RM1,000 worth of prizes (SIX limited collection bags and 24 pursehooks *hyperventilates with excitement*).

So come on and do your part.

It takes every small drop of water to form an ocean.

Spread the Got Boobies? campaign, one person (two boobies) at a time.
