A few weeks ago I saw a tweet by @DirtyLaundryUK saying they were doing a play in Yorkshire about Breast Cancer. I enquired if it was coming to London as any time I hear/see/read the words breast cancer, I feel a complusive urge to “to do something”. Two years ago, the day before I got married, my mother-in-law was diagnosed with breast cancer. Supporting her through the chemo, the radiotherapy and the sheer fear of not surviving has been, to be truthful, horrific. However, she is a survivor! Many women are, IF, it is caught early enough and treated properly.
I contacted Sharon at DirtyLaundery and asked if I could write a post about boobs, what they mean to me, what would I do without one of them? Without both of them? Sharon, as well as lots of others, was amazed that I showed such interest and support. I dont think you can shout too loud or too often about Breast Cancer and you dont need to be an old woman to get it. We all should be aware how precious are breasts are and for this reason, I came up with #BRAvellous – an opportunity for women, and men, to tell us how BRAvellous their boobs are, how someone BRAvellous they know has beaten Breast Cancer, or sadly, not. One time, women burned their bra’s. Today, let’s embrace them!
