~ That 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer before the age of 85.
~ And that breast cancer is the most common cancer among West Australian women (not including non-melonoma skin cancer)
~ And that the risk of breast cancer increases with age.
well if you did not know anything beforehand about breast cancer, please click on that bright purple button that you see on the right hand corner of my page - and take a quiz.
it's run by Purple Boots Awareness and their campaigning to increase breast cancer awareness amongst women. it took me only 5-10 minutes to answer all their questions and it was well worth it because it proved that i did not know enough! (i scored only a measely 60% if you must know)
Plus, just by answering the quiz before the end of March, you even stand a chance to win fabulous prizes such as a $8000 luxury holiday to Thailand with $1000 spending money! You can even help further by purchasing a pair of purple boots worth $30 that will contribute to National awareness and education.
What are you waiting for? Go and get your facts straight. Spread the word to all your girlfriends, mothers, sisters, aunties.. and the list goes on..
I believe it's THAT important that every woman should know their facts about breast cancer.
p.s: for the guys, you should also take the quiz. even though there is a much slimmer chance for men to be diagnosed with breast cancer, it is not at all impossible. *click* to find out more
