Breast Cancer Awareness Month

by Grace Njeri

Happy Friday My Loves,

For today’s post, I wanted to share with you not only a fun outfit idea, but also something that is very important – Breast Cancer! October is the pink month and that means raising awareness on breast cancer. I am truly honored to have this platform where I can share on such issues and as a woman, it is important to participate in the fight to someday overcome this terrible disease.

You may know someone or know of someone who has battled breast cancer or lost their lives to breast cancer and this is why you should go for breast screening this month. A few years ago, a friend was diagnosed with breast cancer and we lost her shortly after the diagnosis. Part of raising awareness is having yourself checked and I know this is extremely scary but you could save a life by early detection and treatement.

If you haven’t already gone for screening please make sure you take any female in your life with you : your mother, sister, cousin, friend, girlfriend or any lady in your life especially those above the age of 20. #SpreadtheWord

I took the liberty to call several hospitals in the country to find out the days and rates for breast screening and other discounted cancer screening tests. Please note that there are so many hospitals not listed below. These are the only hospitals I was able to contact so if you have one in mind please pop in and do a physical enquiry.
