Turning My Blog Pink: Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Turning My Blog Pink: Breast Cancer Awareness Month #TheWeeklyLinkUp

Hello friends. Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Breast cancer is not something I had ever wanted to think about in-depth before.

But then sometimes life happens and it makes you stop in your tracks and you have to think about it.

Did you know about 1 in 8 women are diagnosed with breast cancer during their lifetime.

Every 10 minutes in the UK one woman is diagnosed with breast cancer and one man is diagnosed every day.

Around 55,000 women and 370 men are diagnosed with breast cancer every year in the UK.

How scary is this!?

It also has me thinking that;

This month I want to help raise awareness of breast cancer on my blog and social media.

I am turning my blog pink to help raise raise awareness and hope people who get the chance to go for tests, go and if you are worried about anything go and get it checked out.

Also I would like to mention the people who everyday do amazing work in research and the medical industry. They are doing a fantastic job find cancer early and are saving peoples lives.

Did you know you could have breast cancer and not even know? Not symptoms? This is scary too.

If something does not feel right go and seek a doctors help or if you get invited to a mammogram go and get yourself checked.

Also try and keep your appointment and do not cancel if you think you are too busy.

You are never to busy to have your health checked.

Breast Cancer Now:

Breast Cancer Now is a charity my eldest Son volunteered for whilst at Unniversity.

He ran the Prague marathon in 2015 and cycled from London to Paris in raising over £2,300 for Breast Cancer Now. I am so proud of the time and effort he put into this

  1. Claire, I love it! I love your pink blog! I have my mammogram scheduled for next week and I am thinking of having the lab techs take some pictures of the process for me so I can write a post. It is probably a good idea for us all to keep spreading the awareness! Thanks for doing your part.


  2. Maureen says:

    Breast cancer is scary and I am so glad you are raising awareness about it. It affects all of us and like you said, the scariest is not having any symptoms but still have it. And kudos to your son for also being involved in raising awareness! I hope you had a great start to your Monday. Wishing you a beautiful week ahead Claire!

    HI Claire
    Love the raincoat in pink. It is so important for regualr checkups. I get a 3d imaging mammo as mine are fibrotic and they can detect it easier. Congrats to your son for all his efforts!

  8. The photo of your son is amazing–so giving of him! I don’t blame you for consolidating your link ups, it’s a lot! I stay regular with my mammograms, but there’s still some cause for worry, as you mention you can be asymptomatic.

  9. Thanks for hosting and I hope that you have a wonderful week.

  10. mireille says:

    I need to go in for a mammogram myself, had one quite a few years ago!

  11. Mother of 3 says:

    I just had my first mammogram last week; I kept putting it off but I am glad to have it behind me (and get a clean bill of health for awhile).

  12. Alexandra says:

    I look forward to participating in the breast cancer awareness walk in my city every year. It is a scary thing to have to worry about.

  13. Thank you for hosting! This is what was highlighted during the week 9-30 to 10-4 on the blog. On Tuesday morning was a breakfast of Corned Beef Hash Browns and Eggs. Wednesday we enjoyed a Veal Parmigiana. Wrapping up this week of comfort food we enjoyed an Easy Double Cheese Baked Penne. Enjoy!

    Well done to your son for his amazing achievement! That’s a great photo in front of the Eiffel Tower!
