Keeping Em’ Tidy This October: Breast Cancer Awareness

Posted on October 05 2021

As well as making our super high-quality Cool De Sacs bralettes which make exercise a breeze - we seek to keep all the bold Bawbags brandishing birds healthy through some very important breast cancer awareness.

Awareness really makes all the difference. Knowing about the right resources, and ways to spread the message about breast cancer awareness is often all that’s needed to save lives.

Breast cancer is all too common with so many cases going unnoticed. We want to make sure that you know ways that you can help spread the word.

We believe in keeping 'em tidy, but we can’t do that without your help!

Breast Cancer Awareness Month 

Breast cancer awareness month takes place every year in October, and there’s so much that you can do to make a difference.

Whether you're organising a sponsored walk, climbing a Munro, or sharing informational resources through your social media, it can be the little changes that can really switch people on to self-checking.

Even if you’re just wearing some pink, do it your way, just make sure that you’re doing it because the more people that know about ways to catch breast cancer early might be all that’s needed to save lives.

Charities And Causes

We support a bunch of charities that are part of the fight against breast cancer. We have raised more than £80,000 for causes like Teenage Cancer Trust and Medical Detection Dogs.

And each pair of Bawbags underwear that you buy chips in too, with proceeds going to charities as well as other great causes which you can check out here

Self-Checking

Check yourself daily as a part of your morning routine. Changes might go unnoticed if you aren’t keeping tabs, so take that extra 5 minutes to check yourself when you are getting ready to take on the day.

It’s such an easy change but it makes a real difference; vigilance can save lives. The earlier that you catch breast cancer the easier the treatment process is going to be.

If something pops up, even if it’s just one of the less common symptoms, get a screening organised as soon as possible. If it turns out to be nothing or something minor that’s great, it’s better to be on the safe side.

See the NHS website for more insight into breast cancer itself, ways to identify it and treatments that are available.

Changes That You Can Make

Breast cancer doesn’t mean that you are going to lose a breast, nor does it mean that you are definitely going to need chemotherapy.

It can be a quick and fairly minor procedure if caught early on, so make sure that you’re checking as often as possible.

Not only that, make sure that your friends are too, make sure they know the symptoms and are taking care of themselves.

The more people you inform, the less likely they are to get caught out by late-stage breast cancer so every change really makes a difference. On top of that, you can donate to charities.

So, to finish, check yerself, make sure your pals are checking themselves, and where possible, spread the message of breast cancer awareness - you can start by sharing this blog!
