I’ve been tagged by Mariuca to pass on The Pink Penguin in conjunction with the ‘Breast Cancer Awareness’ month of October. In doing my bit to help spread awareness on the issue of breast cancer to women, here are several tips I’d like to share with you on how you can avoid breast cancer and remain healthy:

1. Eat fruit – limit intake of animal fats
2. Exercise regularly – stay physically active
3. Get screened – go for a mammogram for early detection of breast cancer

4. Give birth and breast-feed
5. Avoid sleeping with your bra on – Wearing it >12hrs can contribute to
the growth of cancer cells in your breasts.

How you can help raise awareness on breast cancer:-

1. Spread the word. Announce the event on your blog. You could write a blog post (like this), or a little note about it. Whatever you choose to do, just go ahead and tell your readers about it.

2. Go pink. Modify your theme if you know how to, or get yourself a pretty pink theme. If you run a website, turn your website pink. But if you don’t like pink, you could still participate by putting up a badge on your sidebar.

3. Design badges and banners. Design a couple of “Pink for October” badges or banners for other participants to use (for free) and to publicize the event. Some of the existing badges and banners can be downloaded from the Official Pink for October Site.

4. Design blog themes. There are a lot of bloggers (me included) who can’t even do simple designing, so if you are good at it, perhaps you could design and release a few pink themes? So, I am hoping that whoever happens to read my post, please do something to spread the awareness. It only takes a moment of our time.

If you like to take part in this awareness, you can copy paste the whole thing and come up with 5 tips to avoid breast cancer. Feel free to save or copy the Pink Penguin (choose one, better still choose both!) to your post.

Thank you!

  2. Hi Silvia! Great to know there will be more thematic illo! Thanks!

    Hi Pelf! Thanks for dropping by! This is the least I could do to help spread the awareness.

  3. Emila, this is the second time today I was reminded of the importance of self-screening for breast cancer. I’d love to create a “pass on” image of the pink penguin, too, as well as display yours on my site. Would that be ok? Raising awareness for Breast Cancer is so important!

  4. Hi Jean, thanks! Would be so cool to see the penguin in your blog!

    Hi JC, great to see you here! Of course you can put it up in your site! I can’t wait to see yours, perhap I can display it in here too.

  5. Hi again Emila! Oh I always stop by and see your lovely work on your blog! =) Forgot to mention how incredibly cute your pass on is… and Mariuca’s too! I’m working on mine and will post soon (before Oct ends I hope!) Thank you for sharing this great and very worthwhile challenge!

  6. Daggone it! Here it is the END of October, and I’m just now reading all about this! I’ll have to try to make one now, too…I guess it’s never too late to be aware of breast cancer, though. One of my teacher friends is undergoing chemo right now for breast cancer and will soon have radiation. Thanks for inspiring everyone! Love all the ones I’ve seen so far! 🙂
