Save A Breast Or Two ...

I'm feeling a little, well a lot under the weather really. I'm feverish and coughing away and really shouldn't be at work today. I should be in bed snugly tucked under the blankets and pampered by wifey instead of sitting in the office. What's that honey? I'm way too big to be pampered? Sigghhhh ...

Anyways, since I am here in the office and can't resist blogging, sick or not, I thought I'd do this tag Rozella sent my way. I'm normally not that fast in doing my tags but this one is for a good cause so it gets a little priority in my long list of tags.


This tag is about breast cancer, something which I have absolutely zero knowledge on. It actually came about cos doctors found six lumps on the right breast of her dad's younger sister. And one of them turned out to be cancerous! Luckily it was detected early cos she does regular mammograms and I suppose there are treatments for it, right Rozella?

But the thing is, lots of women out there don't really have any health insurance and can't even afford to get tested. This is why the fatality rate for it is pretty high. Most women find out too late to get help. Sad isn't it? But you can play your part in helping save some lives by telling people about The Breast Cancer Site and clicking the pink button below as many times as you can.


If The Breast Cancer Site receives 8 million clicks on that little pink button above in the month of June, then their premier sponsor, Bare Necessities, will donate $10,000 for a lot more free mammograms that could possibly be saving the lives of someone's mother, wife, daughter, sister or even friend. So, what are you sitting around gawking at this post. Click that pink button and save a life already!

And please don't sit on this tag for too long, ya? There's only slightly more than 3 weeks to get 8 million clicks. So, help out, do your part. It's not a lot to ask to save a life is it? I'm going to tag everyone in my blogroll for this tag. And those who are not in it are free to join as well. Just drop a word to me that you're joining so I can thank you for helping out :D

  23. Rafiq's current boss now is a breast cancer survivor.. She was diagnosed when she was only 25!! Can u imagine! Since she didnt have insurance, she hadta sell everything she had including her huge company, her Audi TT, and lose all her clients.. Now she's on the road to recovery and expanding her company again. She's only 29 this year!! Makes me wanna go out there and sky dive and just live life!

  24. Syura - Gee, that's one tough woman! To have experienced all that at such an early age and actually beating is something to shout about. Kudos to her.

    Yup, this reminds me of that song by urmmm, Tim McGraw, the chorus goes something like this:

    I went sky diving,
    I went Rocky Mountain
    climbing,
    I went 2.7 seconds on a bull named FuManchu,
    and I loved deeper,
    and I spoke sweeter,
    and I gave forgiveness I'd been denying,
    and he said
    someday I hope you get the chance
    to live like you were dying.


    I just loved that song ... Life is really unexpected. Make the best I say :D
