HELLO My Name is Boobie.
Welcome to your Tuesday, boobie themed, blog post. Unless you have been living under a boobie you know October is breast cancer awareness month. The radio is yammering on about it, Fabulous Over Forty is posting products which donate proceeds to research and ladies across the nation are pokin' and prodin' making sure their boobies are on the up and up (regardless of what gravity is trying to do). So here's a few of, "just the facts Mister... Miss..." All boobies over the young age of 40 should get an annual mammogram. Sounds easy, right? Then do it already. No more putting things off or avoiding cuz you don't want to chance getting any bad boobie news. The key to fighting the disease is EARLY DETECTION! I know you've heard this same ole boobie song and dance before, but it's true! You have a 25-30% (or higher) chance of beating the snot outta breast cancer if you take the boobie by the nipple (kinda like the bull by the horns) and practice preventative medicine. Ok, so you've taken a moment to call and schedule your yearly exam so we should chat about what you CAN do to lower your risk. Maintain a healthy weight via a good diet and exercise, stop smoking even though it's a tough one, limit your alcohol intake and avoid sustained hormone replacement therapy for 5 years or longer. So it may be tricky, but if you put your mind (or should I say boobies) to it I know you can do it-PLUS-the 34B cup is a guaranteed boobie cheerleader. Ok, so we talked boobies and now we can't part without talking about how to help. My favorite way? Eat lots of Yoplait yogurt! I do! Take a peek inside my refrigerator! For every pink lid you lick clean and send in Yoplait will donate 10 cents to Susan G. Komen for the Cure®, up to $1.5 million. They guarantee a donation of at least $500,000! Collect those lids and get them in by December 31st, 2008. Click here for more details.
