Breast Cancer Month of June



I've been tagged by sweet Rozella to help spread the awareness on the ‘Breast Cancer Awareness’ month of June. Please help convey the importance of regular examination and early detection of breast cancer in order to catch this disease when it first erupts, maximizing the chance of survival and recovery. So in doing my bit to help spread awareness on the issue of breast cancer to women, here are several facts on breast cancer that everyone should know about.

The first sign of breast cancer usually shows up on a woman's mammogram before it can be felt or any other symptoms are present.
Risks for breast cancer include a family history, atypical hyperplasia, delaying pregnancy until after age 30 or never becoming pregnant, early menstruation (before age 12), late menopause (after age 55), current use or use in the last ten years of oral contraceptives, and daily consumption of alcohol.
Early detection of breast cancer, through monthly breast self-exam and particularly yearly mammography after age 40, offers the best chance for survival.
Ninety-six percent of women who find and treat breast cancer early will be cancer-free after five years.
Over eighty percent of breast lumps are not cancerous, but benign such as fibrocystic breast disease.
• You are never too young to develop breast cancer! Breast Self-Exam should begin by the age of twenty.

Resources: American Cancer Society National Cancer Institute Komen Foundation

You can help the lives of many women by spreading the word about The Breast Cancer Site pink button as many times as you can. If The Breast Cancer Site receives 8 million clicks on the pink button in June, their premier sponsor -Bare Necessities- will donate $10,000 for more free mammograms. CLICK the pink button today!

The Breast Cancer Site


I'd like to pass on this tag to Farah, LJ, Shiela, Bless, Sushi, Shelly, Roxy, Emila, Liza, Sporty Spice, Daisy, Zubli, Jesie, Bono, Sasha, NAFASg, Ruby, Janet, Cindi, Nancy & KCee.

Thanks for getting it up so quickly :) *hugs* You did such a great job too with all the statistics.

It's really scary and I do believe that by us clicking and spreading the word online, we would definitely help a lot of women. Thanks again!

Hi Mariuca...I am here to drop off my Bay Head Blog EntreCard and pick up my tag for a good cause. My mom battled breast cancer for a couple of years, unfortunately had to have a mastectomy, but hey, she'll be 83 in July and is still going strong! I'll try to post it to Roxiticus Desperate Housewives on Thursday, maybe even put the pink button in my sidebar for a while.

Roxy

Tina June 5, 2008 at 6:51 AM

Condo Blues June 7, 2008 at 6:24 AM

I clicked the link to do my part! My Husband does his part too. He runs in our local Race For The Cure every year in memory of a family member who had breast cancer. This year he came in 21st out of over 40 thousand runners and walkers. He ROCKS!!!

Sushi June 7, 2008 at 11:18 AM

Oh I'm flattered by so many compliments! Thanks you all! I'm looking forward to more Phoebe updates.
PS: What a posh salon for diva baths!

Mariuca June 7, 2008 at 2:24 PM

Hi Lisa, thanks a lot for clicking and wow to ur hubby's achievement! That is awesome, I can tell u're very proud of him. ;)

Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see u back here soon! :)

Mariuca June 7, 2008 at 2:26 PM

LadyJava June 8, 2008 at 12:09 PM

GP!! Up for another meme here???

Have a great weekend dearie.. hope you internet is ok already :)

Tina June 8, 2008 at 8:02 PM

I agree your EC badge looks so hoT at my place lol!

I would keep it there if i could :(

Hope you got some clicks from it xxx

Tina June 8, 2008 at 8:06 PM

you have officially confused me marzie. I saw on someone elese blog you are the genie princess, but when you comment to me your Mariuca.

What you doing to me girl! x

Mariuca June 9, 2008 at 2:33 AM

Hi Venom, thanks and welcome to Mariuca's Perfume Gallery! Have a great day. :)

Mariuca June 9, 2008 at 2:35 AM

Hi LJ, thanks dearie! This meme memang suitable for MPG. I will get it up later yeah? :)

Mariuca June 9, 2008 at 2:37 AM

Hi Tina! Ohhhh ... I think when I left my first comment at ur blog, I signed in as Mariuca... so my info is saved as Mariuca at ur blog, but worry not...you will soon receive an official visit from the Genie Princess alakazam!! :):):)

Zubli Zainordin June 9, 2008 at 3:05 PM

Pandailah you all, I all, nengok budak wangi dengan wong jowo, sampai 100, tolak bab mandi 55 sorang! 45 jer yang velit. LOL!!!

Zubli Zainordin June 9, 2008 at 3:09 PM

Tak per Marzie, rasanya kat sini yang wangi dua orang jer. Ateh pada 40 rasanya, bertahan sampai hujung bulan. Hehehehehehe...

Sushi June 10, 2008 at 12:15 AM

Helo Marzie!(Beginning to write in Malaysian). I have a question about your kitties. Aren't they supposed to give themselves a bath? I really don't like this idea....I believe in baths with soap and water! How often do you give them a bath/take them to the salon? I'm trying to get enough info about Persians so I'll have more arguments to convince Daddy to get one. Selamat Tinggal!(I think I've got another language to learn, I can do it! WOOF!)

Mariuca June 10, 2008 at 9:49 AM

Eh eh eh mana ada bab mandi ni Zubli he he...tu kan kita dah discuss kat Mariuca, kat sini semua discussion yg wangi-wangi je Zubli he he! Enjoyzzzz ur Tuesday ye? :):):)

Mariuca June 10, 2008 at 9:52 AM

Hi Sushi!! Ha ha ha when I send them for their Diva wash, it's a 10-step procedure that includes shampooing of course! I try to send them whenever they get dirty. We used to shampoo them ourselves but it was getting to be too difficult especially with Benji who's so big and fluffy! :):):)

Zubli Zainordin June 10, 2008 at 10:26 AM

Iyer ker? Habeh yang woof woof tanya bath tu aper menda? LOL!!!

Sushi June 11, 2008 at 3:21 AM

I'm really impressed with the 10-step process! Wow, I have to try this one. Oh, Marzie I see you like Victoria's Secret, do you also like Bath & Body Works? You know when I was little and Mama wasn't used to me(she used to be scared of me or any person like me)even my natural scent bothered her, she would spraye me every now and then with either VS or BBW body splash. She also sprayed my bed linen. I liked it but she sprayed a bit too much!

Shinade June 11, 2008 at 7:34 AM

Hello again,
I simply can't pass up the chance to grab a little perfume special dust sprinkle.
Love and Hugs:-))))

Mariuca June 11, 2008 at 11:17 PM

Hello Zubli and Jackie! Apa khabar semua? I hope you are still keeping up with ur lessons Jackie and Zubli is behaving himself? ;)

Mariuca June 11, 2008 at 11:20 PM

Sushi! I LOVE Bath and Body Works!!! I used it all the time when I was studying in the US, even more than VS stuff he he!! I am still waiting for Bath to open up a branch here, such a long wait! I usually get my "supply" from friends who go overseas or when B goes on one of his biz trips! :):):)

Cindi @ Mama Mentor Blog June 12, 2008 at 1:02 AM

Hi~
Clicked the pink ribbon ~ and congrats for being mentioned in the Entrecard Blog today!

Mariuca June 12, 2008 at 11:26 AM

Hola Cindi!! Thanks so much for the click and for ur comment. Matt did an excellent write-up for the EC blog yeah? Woo hoo!! :):):)

Sushi June 13, 2008 at 5:16 AM

Hopefully they'll open a B&B Works soon in your city. I think it's sold on ebay, but I'm not sure you can trust... if you want Mama to send to you, there shouldn't be a problem. I like your songs in here, really relaxing!

Mariuca June 13, 2008 at 10:47 AM

I wish Sushi!!! I've been waiting forever! We don't even have VS here! :(

Oh Mama is so sweet, please thank her for me! I'd love that but at the same time I wouldn't want to trouble her, unless I'm totally out and then I'll bug u and Mama to help GP okay? He he!

I like my songs here too, they're actually B's fave type of music! :)

Sushi June 15, 2008 at 1:27 PM

GP, you can bug me & Mama, when you're out, just SHOUT! haha:)

PS: This is to Zubli! Hi Zubli, Rawang? I don't get it! She-'ka-go (Ok) Japanese code ( I don't get it aagain!):(

Marzie, do you get it?

Mariuca June 16, 2008 at 12:16 PM

LOL Sushi!!! I too don't get it he he but Rawang is a place.

Zubli, stop confusing my cute Sushi! ;)

Rozella June 18, 2008 at 10:33 AM
