#CheckYourSelfieZA

Cancer is a very scary illness. I’ve lost friends and family to cancer and I’ve got friends and family fighting cancer – it’s a tough illness. I’m pretty paranoid when it comes to my health. A massive bruise once appeared on my shin for now reason (the size of a cricket ball!) and the next day I went for blood tests to make sure everything is okay. Luckily it was. I’m much rather safe than sorry – if cancer is caught early it can be treated quite successfully.

August is Women’s Month, and the #CheckYourSelfieZA campaign encourages women to do a quick breast examination at home (here’s how to do it). Get others to do the same by uploading a pic of your bra and a message of encouragement on social media with the #CheckYourSelfieZA hash tag. As women we should be doing these self-examinations on a regular basis but most of us don’t. Take part in this breast cancer awareness campaign and help spread the word. Here’s my picture, now go ahead and post yours!
