October is here and it is all about breast cancer awareness. Although such cases should be about awareness throughout the year. @Saudkh did mention that adding a “twibon” on your Twitter profile pic is not really what this needs. He mentioned that instead you can call who you know and tell them to go for a check-up.
I got to say, I didn’t really care about such awareness when I was younger. Maybe because I never knew someone who was affected by it. It was all about hearing about women having it.
This changed 3 years ago when my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer and last February lost the battle to it. My mother was diagnosed late, if only she did do the check-ups maybe she would be with us right now. Early detection can give a survival rate of 98%.
Maybe a ribbon won’t be helpful on your twitter pic. Actually helping others and donating for cancer research is the way to go.
