NIGERIAN BLOGGERS FOR BREAST CANCER

Nigerian bloggers for breast cancer

Hey guys!

It’s October and its breast cancer awareness month.

My friend, Winifred Atusue and I decided Nigerian fashion bloggers needed to come together to use their creative spaces to create awareness for breast cancer. Yes, we are all about glitz and glamour but we also want to show the world that we care as well. To this end, we decided to have a campaign that incorporated being ourselves by dressing up nicely as well as spreading word on breast cancer as it concerns the world.

Our outfits were pretty simple; we got white t-shirts with personal quotes about breast cancer printed on them and styled them differently.

I am really grateful to the bloggers from Abuja, Lagos, Ibadan and Port Harcourt who participated in this campaign. I have a new found respect for them, for realizing the importance of this cause and taking out time to participate in same. It wasn’t really easy bringing people together initially as we are all so diverse, to be sincere I almost gave up but look who didn’t??? *lol*

Special thanks to everyone who was a part of this campaign in every other way particularly Winifred the Project Manager for ensuring it came to fruition.

By the way guys, make sure you visit everyone’s blog, I will leave links below. They are amazing fashion and lifestyle bloggers

What is breast Cancer?

Breast cancer is an uncontrolled growth of breast cells; these cells usually form a tumor and can be felt as a lump. One in every eight women develop breast cancer, which is why the importance of self examination cannot be overemphasized.

Symptoms

  • A lump in the breast
  • Bloody nipple discharge
  • Breast pain or sore nipples
  • Inverted nipple
  • A change in the size or shape of the breast or nipples

Treatments

Treatments depend on the type and stage of the cancer and may involve surgery, radiation, and/or chemotherapy. Please feel free to contact a specialised Medical Practitioner for detailed information on available treatments.

Prevention

  • Detect it early by checking yourself regularly and/or going for regular screening
  • Eat the right foods, vegetables and fruits
  • Be physically active
  • Keep your weight in check
  • Breast feed, where possible * I guess it’s time to get married and have kids Lmao!*

IBADAN:

For survivors of breast cancer; eating right, exercising, maintaining a healthy diet and being vigilant about screening can help prevent a recurrence.

Lastly, do not forget that God loves you and we love you too.

I have decided to go get checked and perform regular self examinations on myself, I hope you do too.

Dear males, you are also involved in the fight against breast cancer so do well to spread the word and encourage regular screening among your mothers, sisters, aunties, school mates, colleagues, girlfriends, wives and other female relatives and acquaintance.
