This year marks the 4th Annual National Feel Your Boobies Week, an annual campaign hosted by the Feel Your Boobies Foundation as part of breast cancer awareness month. "Feel Your Boobies. Remind a Friend." is the lighthearted message the Foundation is sending to young women to encourage them to get in touch with their own bodies and remind their friends to do the same.
The mission of the Feel Your Boobies Foundation is to utilize unexpected and unconventional methods to remind young women to "feel their boobies". "Our campaign gets your attention with its provocative slogan, but also delivers a life-saving message." says Leigh Hurst, Founder of Feel Your Boobies. And she speaks from experience. In 2004 she was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 33. Because she was in touch with her body, she felt a lump that otherwise went unnoticed by doctors.
With over 2 million followers on Facebook, making Feel Your Boobies® one of the Top 30 Causes on Facebook, the campaign is certainly spreading its message. But it's doing more than that…it's saving lives. Young women like Holly Rose found her lump because of Feel Your Boobies' Facebook campaign. "My girlfriend posted "Feel Your Boobies" on Facebook." says Rose, "I did that night and found a lump. Had it not been for my friend who posted Feel your boobies on Facebook it could have progressed even further. Feel your boobies saved my life."
Founded in 2004, Feel Your Boobies® is a breast cancer awareness non-profit organization whose mission is to utilize unexpected and unconventional media to remind women, especially those under 40, to "feel their boobies". Getting in the habit of knowing is what is normal for you increases the chances of noticing a breast lump or other changes when they occur. Learn more at http://www.feelyourboobies.com
