Every October, I make a point of spamming my profile on facebook, so everyone on my friends list will be made aware of breast cancer – how to spot the signs, and what to do for support. I do this in memory of my maternal grandmother, Lucy, who passed away from breast cancer in 1991, aged just 59.
Did you know that 1 in 8 women, and 1 in 1,000 men will be diagnosed with Breast Cancer at some point in their lives?
Ladies; know the signs, know the symptoms. Gentlemen, please read this too… Breast Cancer doesn’t just affect women. Early detection can save lives.
Be brave; check your breasts often. Know what’s normal for YOU. If you notice any changes, see your GP. Remember, many women have lumps, and 9 in every 10 are nothing to worry about. Be brave; be strong. Stand up and help fight the fight.

So my darling hubby has decided to take one of his passions to the extreme, and in doing so, he’s helping a fantastic charity.
Macmillan know how a cancer diagnosis can affect everything. So they’re there to support you and help you take back some control in your life. From help with money worries and advice about work, to someone who’ll listen if you just want to talk, they’re there.
No one should face cancer alone. So when you need someone to turn to, Macmillan are there. Right from the moment you’re diagnosed, through your treatment and beyond, we’re a constant source of support, giving you the energy and inspiration to help you take back control of your life, and feel more like yourself again.
My hubby has decided to take part in a 24 hour online gaming marathon, and will be “live streaming” the session via the xbox one app, “Beam”. The session will start at midnight on 2nd going in to the 3rd of June, and will end at 23:59 on 3rd June.
So this is a post asking for donations. Not for me – not for my hubby – but straight to this wonderful charity, so they can continue with their excellent work.
Even if you can only donate a pound, as the saying goes – “every penny helps”.
