Dance, Run, Laugh, Cry and Love for Breast Cancer

May 3rd is BC Breast Cancer Awareness Day and just around the corner. As a local Vancouverite I thought a little inspiration to give was due.

I could spout facts and figures about breast cancer, give you tips on how to do a self exam, 10 ways to volunteer or donate to support the research that will one day cure breast cancer. But instead I thought a few remarkable videos may get the message across.

These videos will teach you how to do a breast exam (and make you laugh out loud)

The videos will make you feel like dancing in the streets. Watch Now

The women will inspire you to give a little more. Watch now

Just one image may change the way you think about breast cancer

Your involvement and support of BC’s Breast Cancer Awareness Day will help change the lives of women across Canada. If you want to be part of this special day consider attending the 20th annual Awareness Day luncheon. You will have a chance to hear keynote speaker René Syler – renowned parent blogger, as Good Enough Mother – talk about her journey through a controversial preventive mastectomy surgery. (read her story on Oprah.com)

Find your own way to give to support breast cancer. Whether you volunteer, donate, spread awareness or talk openly about it. The more we talk about what is killing us the more people will do something about it. Favourite the videos on You Tube, Tweet, share on Facebook and remind the world that we care for all that have suffered and all that have died.

Breast cancer is not a secret, it’s not a bad word – it’s the reality we are living every day. On May 3rd be aware and give generously as a donor or a volunteer.
