Breast Cancer Awareness Month: Get In Touch
October 1, 2007
Why: Women living in the U.S. have a one in eight lifetime risk of developing breast cancer. October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and I may not have the income to donate a hospital wing or the brain power to develop a cure (I’ll leave that to Eva Vertes), but I can do my small part by purchasing some great products in support of the cause.
Just like flossing, self-breast exams are something we know we should do, but too easily brush aside or forget. And at the risk of sounding like a drama queen, those 10 minutes a month could save your life. Each In Touch kit includes detailed instructions in English and Spanish, as well as a monthly reminder calendar and even a travel satchel. The glove itself contains a pink, non-toxic liquid that reduces friction by 50% to allow for heightened sensitivity of your fingertips so any abnormalities will be more easily detected. Early detection is the best defense and for just $9 and 10 minutes, there’s really no excuse to skip a monthly self-exam.
