Breast Cancer Information - Stay Informed

Post by: Mel at 11:03 AM on Wednesday, Oct 06 2010 in News | Permalink | Contact

What is breast cancer?

Breast cancer forms in the tissues of the breast and is usually found in the ducts (milk tubes) and lobules (milk making glands).  

Who can get breast cancer?

Breast cancer is found in both men and women.  Although breast cancer in men is rare, it can occur.

Am I at risk of getting breast cancer?

Being a woman automatically puts you at risk for breast cancer!  Also the following factors put you at risk

  • age
  • age at the start of menstruation
  • age at first live birth
  • number of first-degree relatives (mother, sisters, daughters) with breast cancer
  • number of previous breast biopsie (whether positive or negative)
  • at least one breast biopsy with atypical hyperplasia

source: http://www.cancer.gov/bcrisktool/breast-cancer-risk.aspx

Will a mammorgaphy prevent Breast Cancer?

No, but they can help saves lives by finding breast cancer as early as possible, which means the early you find breast cancer, the earlier you can undergo treatment and keep your breasts. When caught early, localized cancer can be removed without needing a mastectomy.

The biggest risk you take by getting a mammorgraphy is the fact that the test isn't perfect and that the cancer can hide and not show up (ie. a flase negative). However, with regular checkups, breast self-exams and mammographies, the chances of finding breast cancer early is higer than not getting a mammorgraphy at all. Beginning at age 40, you should start to get an annual mammorgraphy.

I found a lump, so that means I have breast cancer?

Not necessarily.  8 out of 10 breast lumps are benign (not cancerous).  If you find a lump or change in your breast tissue, contact your physician and take charge of your health. Sometimes we would rather not go to the doctor (myself included)  because we are afraid of what they will find.  But knowing about it and getting it treated can save your life.  So put the fear aside and make an appointment with your doctor.

WOW!  So we are getting so close to $4K at the end of Day 3 and I have high hopes that things are going to pickup now that the weekend is over and everyone has to head back to work and their normal schedules.

I can not thank all of the donors and participants enough. You guys just rock!

I also have to thank all of you who are tweeting, facebooking, blogging, sharing links and just supporting us every step of the way. 

On top of that, we have some kickass volunteers who spend countless hours at their computers making sure everything runs smoothly.  Thank you all!

It is humbling to see everyone come together and promote the Boobie-Thon in their own way.  I sometimes don't know what to say, because thank you doesn't seem to be enough.

The 3rd Annual BoobieThon in Second Life

Post by: Mel at 11:01 PM on Saturday, Oct 02 2010 in News | Permalink | Contact

For the past two years the SecondLife Boobie-Thon events have been hugely successful. And this year, Eva Bellambi and Serra Anansi have put together a week full of Boobie-Balls, art auctions and other special events in support of Boobie-Thon and Komen.  For more details please visit The Realm of the Red Rose and while you're at it, check out the 2009 and 2008 SecondLife Boobie-Thon's.

I'm doing my best to get to a few of the events this year, including the Third Annual BoobieBall - US event, 7:30pm - 9:30pm SLT,Winterfell Anodyne/Winterfell Harbor sim crossing.  Hope to see some of you there!

We are so proud to support the SecondLife BoobieThon and can not thank the event coordinators enough for putting all of this together.

Thank you for an amazing first day!

Well we didn't do too shabby today folks.  Almost $2K in the first 24 hours.  We can not thank you enough for all your support, the donations, the photos, tweets and encouragement! 

While we get our beauty rest, you can continue to donate and submit your photos overnight. We'll be back Saturday morning at 8am with site updates and hopefully a ton of photos to publish.  If you aren't sure what sorta photo to submit, feel free to take a peek at the sampler page (not safe for work) I quickly put together.  I'll add some other ideas tomorrow as well. You can also peruse the past events for more ideas.  And if you have a photo request, feel free to send it in or tweet it to us and we'll do our best to get them in for you.

Remember..."If they're worth looking at, they're worth saving!"

Connect. Communicate. Conquer.

Welcome to the 9th Annual Blogger Boobie-Thon

We're so happy to see you all again!  Thanks for coming out and showing your support for us year after year.

As of 12:01 AM October 1st, donations are open.  Every year we have chosen a "bloggers helping bloggers" charity in the spirit of the original Boobie-Thon. This year our secondary charity's proceeds will go directly to the Fund for Gulf Coast Restoration to assist in the clean-up efforts due to the disastrous oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. It's completely up to you to decide which charity you wish to donate to -- or you can donate to both of them.  Remember, your donations to both of these charities are completely tax deductible.

So stop reading this...and go donate! smile

Welcome to Pre-Boobie-Thon

PLEASE NOTE: This main page of the site will always remain work-safe with text updates only, as will the RSS feed linked in the sidebar. Only the photos gallery aren't work-safe.

One week from today, we kick off the 9th Annual Blogger Boobie-Thon!  Can you believe it?  9 years ago this little baby was born, thanks to Robyn and now this baby has grown up and gets bigger and better year after year.  We've got some exciting stuff planned for this year and hope that you will join us for another whirlwind week.

The event officially kicks off on Friday October 1, 2010 at 12:00am EDT and will run through 11:59pm EDT on Thursday October 7, 2010.

For more information about previous events, please visit the Past Events page.  Over the last 8 years, the Boobie-Thon has raised over $64,000.00 and we could not have done it without all of you who have volunteered, submitted photos and opened your wallets. 

Today we have opened the gates to the photo submission area and are now accepting Pre-Launch photos.  These photos will appear on the site when we launch October 1st.

Just as years past, we will once again have a private, password protected pay-per-boobie area with bare-boobie photos for donors of $50.00 or more. In addition, weve got two BIG SPENDER categories -- minimum donation of $75.00 will gain you access to the  2010, 2009 and 2008 pay-per-boobie areas and minimum donations of $125.00 will gain you access to the 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006 and 2005 pay-per-boobie areas.

Please come back and visit on October 1st for more information on how to submit your pledge and make your donation.
