Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Friday, October 19, 2007

I'm joining this month awareness about breast cancer. Please note that man is also exposed to this disease. Don't take for granted. 1 every 100 cases of breast cancer is man.

The symptoms, diagnosis and treatment are all very similar to women with breast cancer. Some treatments can affect men's fertility and sex life. Most cases are diagnosed in men between the ages of 60 and 70.

How you can help raise awareness on breast cancer:-

1. Spread the word. Announce the event on your blog. You could write a blog post (like this), or a little note about it. Whatever you choose to do, just go ahead and tell your readers about it.

2. Go pink. Modify your theme if you know how to, or get yourself a pretty pink theme. If you run a website, turn your website pink. But if you don’t like pink, you could still participate by putting up a badge on your sidebar.

3. Design badges and banners. Design a couple of “Pink for October” badges or banners for other participants to use (for free) and to publicize the event. Some of the existing badges and banners can be downloaded from the Official Pink for October Site.

4. Design blog themes. There are a lot of bloggers (me included) who can’t even do simple designing, so if you are good at it, perhaps you could design and release a few pink themes? So, I am hoping that whoever happens to read my post, please do something to spread the awareness. It only takes a moment of our time.

If you like to take part in this awareness, you can copy paste the whole thing and come up with 5 tips to avoid breast cancer. Feel free to save or copy the Pink Penguin to your post.
