Goin' Pink for the "GIRLS"

As Grandy has stated, October is a big AWARENESS month. It's so big we had our hands slapped washed for a good cause.

With the recent tragedy of Jennifer Hudson, her family, and all the other families that face horrible abusive actions, I'm reminding everyone again that it's also Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

Well I have been tagged for another meme. This one I can't put off any longer because we want to get the big push out there this month. (And no, I'm not talking about rock the effing vote. I'm SO DONE with political propaganda.)

This meme from Mariuca is to Join the Pink Sisterhood.




On her site, Mariuca sited some important facts that women should know about breast cancer and awareness. Well, Grandy realizes that everyone is out there reminding women to check their breasts. Some blogs are out there reminding men to check their women's breasts, although I'm not sure they feel they need to be told. If you don't believe me, check out this link: Breast Exam and see the video. If my techie skills didn't suck so bad, I'd be able to put the video here for you.

So Grandy is going to make you aware of a few different things related to breast cancer...in her own Grandy style. Ready? OKAY! (Ugh...little bit of vomit...sounding like a high school cheerleader)

1. Have you seen staypositivegreetings.com? Kathy DiPofi Shelton is a breast cancer survivor who, like so many brave women with her, has decided to do her part to make a difference. What she has done is create an entire website that sells cards and gifts for women battling breast cancer. They have support cards, funny cards, and fun little gifts. She and her family then donate 10% of all sales to various cancer research sites. This woman chose to find laughter through her adversity...and for that, I raise my hat BOOBIES to her and her site.

2. Zazzle.Com sells some great T-Shirts. If you are a spirited cancer survivor, or want to raise awareness (and other things) in your own way, you must go check out this site. You can find TONS here. Let me show you a couple samples:

3. Lastly...women...let's learn about our breasts. No two apples are the same, so why not embrace what you have and study up with 8 Fun Facts About Your Breasts.

This meme requires that I tag 7 other blogs to help raise awareness. I follow so many, and also know that many of you have already posted about the awareness.

But what do ya say?

Feel like a challenge?

Join the Pink Sisterhood and let me know if you want to join the push to save the BOOBIES.

Raising your BOOBIES? Ha! You must be close to 40. Cause I am, and 'bout the only way mine are where they're supposed to be is 'cause I'm raising them. They sure aren't where I want them anymore, without help.

I like the 2nd base shirt. Just don't tell my kids. ;-)

Suzanne said...

I love the Save the Boobies shirt, too.

We lost my Nana to complications from breast cancer, so it's important to me.

I just can't say on my blog how important it is to have follow up visits with the oncologist-because someone thinks I'm a know it all about this stuff.

dkuroiwa said...

That "Save 2nd Base" is the best!! I think we all need one of those..of course, I'd have to explain it to everyone over here...but I'd wear it anyway!!

Grandy said...

Suzanne~ It'd good to be a know-it-all when it comes to that.

DK~ I'd wear it with ya. :)

songbird's crazy world said...

I saw a lot of the "save second base" shirts when I did Making Strides For Breast Cancer earlier this month. those shirts are great. I don't think I'd be able to wear one, though, I'm usually very conservative in the way I dress.

Grandy said...

Songbird~ They do have more conservative ones, if you were interested.

Mrs. F said...

Oh my freaking GAWD! I need the "Save Second Base" shirt. BAD! I need it BAD!!!!!!!

Grandy said...

Paloma~ Take a pic when you get it...and share, k?
