Two-fer Tuesday: The Boobiethon Edition Part II

Y'all are still checking out Boobie-Thon, right? Donating? Participating? Supporting the fight against breast cancer? Do what you have to do. Women of all ages have breast tissue. Men do, too. It can get any one of us.

Tell you what, grab hold your pair, be they big or small, male or female, and do your self-exam while you listen to these songs.

After listening to some great music, you get to play advocate and go out to educate your friends, family, strangers, whoever, and do whatever it takes. Hold bakes sales. Get your book club together to talk about what you can do to help raise awareness. Perhaps your local blues or jazz or folk society would put together a fundraising night! C'mon, we all have breast tissue, so this means the battle is on for us all!

Now it's time for you to act! Go forth and share the news.

From the Susan G. Komen website:

Anyone can get breast cancer. For example, did you know…

* the older a woman, the more likely she is to get breast cancer?

* young women can and do get breast cancer, even in their 20s?

* white women are more likely to get breast cancer than women of any other racial or ethnic group?

* African American women are more likely to die from breast cancer than white women?

* men can get breast cancer? Out of every one hundred cases of breast cancer, one will occur in a man.

Educate and communicate. Two of the most important components of providing help in this fight against cancer.
