Have you touched yourself..lately?

by xin on October 7, 2010

Though the title sounds really cheesy…but seriously, when was the last time have you done self-breast examination?

October marks a month with special meaning to the females as it is a month dedicated to Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

Having personally knowing someone who won the battle of breast cancer, it is not easy, seriously. The stress, the trauma to herself and family, and having to remove breast, it was not easy at all. And therefore, I am constantly reminded that we should not take our breasts for granted.

First ever, the Estee Lauder Group of Companies has done a great effort in illuminating our landmarks – the Sultan Abdul Samad Building and the KL Tower, in pink!
Fund raising aside, it is mainly to educate women about the importance of self-examination and how our lives might be saved by early detection.

The memorable moment….transforming the building!

It was a moment of awe, though a little pink OD, I still think that it is prettier than the original state.

With KL tower in the background too.

Knowing the signs is the first step of detection:

- Skin dimpling
- Lump
- Change in how the nipple looks
- Discharge from the nipple

All these could be the tell-tales of serious problem ahead. So, take pre-cautions!

Now, watch a fun video and be reminded!
