Hey folks,

In case you didn't know, it's National Breast Cancer Awareness month. And, Oct. 21 is National Mammography Day. Make an appointment RIGHT NOW to get yours. If you have an HMO, the *law* states that you are to receive one free mammogram every year.

To celebrate, how about everyone adopt a reminder buddy. Lots of folks do this, you pick a buddy and remind them once a month to check their boobs.

I'm picking St. Ingrid...so I'll PM her this month and say CHECK YOUR BOOBS INGRID!

Who's gonna be YOUR buddy?

See http://nbcam.com/ for more information about breast cancer, and what you can do.

Thanks, KK... Check yours too!!!

P.S. Buy some boob stamps at the post office everyone! They also have BCA postcards that you can get for $.25 and mail to all your boob-toting friends and remind them to check their boobs!

Very, very funny. I think we would have noticed had they got up and ran away...

There is a banana with boobs where the llama came from, but I don't think it would get past the PG-13 rating! :roflhard:

I got it to work, Ingrid..OH GOD IT'S HILARIOUS... I sooo wanna use it for my avatar. I think it's essential to remind us all to check our boobs.

Amy, can I? Puhleaaaaaaaaaase?

I really think she'll say yes, don't you KK...here's my premonition:

Yes, Denise, you are INSANE for thinking I'll let you use a boobied bananna avatar!

There's a yes in there, you just have to *imagine* it in the proper context.

Ya know....I dont really know WHAT she'd say about THAT one! She's been laughing at all the bananas, and I know she'd be in support of the breast cancer awareness issue, and Im fairly sure she would LAUGH at the be-boobled banana at least SECRETLY, but I just dont know.....

Since I don't know what to check for, I'm looking it up. Man I really need to get a physical so that I know these things (Almost 19 here and pretty behind.)

You can get a free self-breast exam card from the Komen Foundation right here:

KK, I am in no way dilluding myself into thinking that Amy will be all for it...just making a joke!

Ingrid, *eyeroll* dry sarcasm was always more my thing :D.

I am posting my fav link for breast cancer awareness. I was always bad at checking my breasts until I found this site, but now I have not missed one month. There is a real woman showing you three different ways to exam your breasts, a printout for your records to share with your gynecologist and a monthly email reminder. I have done it all!

ooh thank you! I read on a site that you don't have to start til you're twenty, but I think it's okay to get a head start. It's only a year before anyway..and there's a small history of breast cancer in my family I think (she overcame it though) :happydance: Hurray for boob checkin. :roflhard:

Great site, Beldie, thanks! :thumbsup: I check my bb's once a month, AND I plan on breastfeeding my daughter until she's at least one, maybe more.

Oh, and that site with all the bananas, man, there are some raunchy 'nanas! :shock:

Why NOT make the checking fun? And uh, "checking" burns calories, dontcha know!

I'm happy to see everyone checking! This is totally awesome. I just hooked up with another small group of knitters & crocheters that are doing Race For The Cure...and guess what? We might get media coverage, woot woot!
