HAVE A FEEL !!!! ……….

October has been Breast Cancer Awareness month for quite a few years now but, this year, I haven't heard so much about it, so I thought that I give everyone a gentle reminder  { men as well as women } to get them out and have a little rummage around just to make sure that all's well in that area !!
















Just popped that one in to remind the men { …. and as a memory training course for me !!!! }

  1. Such a great post! Fantastic photographs to highlight this horrible disease. Everyone knows someone who has suffered from breast cancer or is fighting breast cancer. Well done, Jane x

  2. Great post with such beautiful pictures. Everyone needs reminding. We all think it will never be ME !
    My niece like lots of women all over the world going through weeks of Chemo to treat breast cancer is not feeling too good this week, so I say a prayer for all of you, to help fight this awful disease.

    1. Hi Barbara,
      So sorry to hear that your family has been touched by breast cancer. It sounds as if your niece has her family's support and I wish her well. XXXX

  3. So good to remind us of it Jackie! I think everyone knows at least one or two friends who were diagnosed with breast cancer. Such a horrible disease! Hope they will find a cure for any form of cancer soon!!

    1. Luckliy, I don't know anyone who has ever had them because of a mastectomy but for people who have had their breast/breasts removed because of breast cancer, it's brilliant that we have that technology. XXXX

  5. Now, I have to admit that I almost jumped at this invitation, but them I understood what it was all about. Only yesterday I invited my step-daughter to check me out for testicular cancer, but she declined. She was saying that most men are scared of checking themselves out. This may seem like a bad-taste post, but I really don't intend it to be (any more than usual).

  9. I wrote this about a friend of mine who succumbed to breast cancer.

    ANNE-ELIZA HERBERT
    R.I.P.

    In a shop full of words
    silent and unspoken
    Titled books peer from shelves
    on whispering august readers

    A woman, child size
    stares at endless covers
    She with upturned hands
    gesticulates a nervous dream

    Her rigid thoughts outreached
    the type set print
    In silent sighs of pain

    Dark rimmed encased eyes
    betrayed her anguished breast
    A tender wounded thing.

    Her words when spoken
    were quiet and direct
    Friend is there a book
    that will teach me to relax?

    And now I read today
    in bold type
    “Anne -Eliza aged forty
    wife of John, mother of four
    Died relaxed in January”

  11. Thanks for the reminder, Jackie - which also reminds me I need a mammogram soon, too.
    I touched someone's boobs who recently had a boob job - she was very nice and didn't think I was being a weirdo, because I wasn't being a weirdo - I just wanted to see how they felt!

  12. Hi Jackie,

    Thanks so much for reminding us of the importance of getting those yearly mammograms. I just had my check-up in September and all is well. My grandmother had breast cancer in both breasts and died at 75.

    I love that pretty bra with the bow...it is so sexy and the guy isn't too bad either. LOL
