Laura and I have been joking around alot via comments on her post about having our boobs squished. When we started out saying that I was going to make a “boob award”, I don’t think this is what either of us had in mind. We’ve been trying to convince our dear friend Debbie that she needs to have a mammogram. She feels like most women that it will hurt too much or be uncomfortable.
I’ve created this fun little award to display on your blog when you keep your breast exams current. Every woman over the age of 40 should have a yearly mammogram. Now I’d like to make it clear, this “award” is in no way meant to be offensive or cause anyone to be upset. This is meant more as encouragement for women everywhere who blog.
If you’d like to proudly display this button on your blog, please go to the “My Button” page. You can then copy and paste it into your sidebar or HTML text. Please share this post and award with your fellow female bloggers.
If you’d like more information on breast cancer or mammorgrams, please visit the following sites:
There are many other agencies, foundations and services that have information on breast cancer and breast cancer awareness. Please don’t be worried about the pain or discomfort. The result of not doing yearly exams and current mammograms could lead to much worse consequences.
