Well that got your attention!...
Somehow the summer (that never was) has been and gone, and already October is knocking on the door! Thoughts turn to Halloween, Bonfire night and of course the big one... Yes I'm talking about Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Wear it Pink
Every day throughout October MJ Bakes will be 'wearing it pink' wrapping your treats in pink tissue in support of Breast Cancer Now's wear it pink campaign to help raise funds for breast cancer research and care... AND...by popular demand, we are bringing back our bold and beautiful Boobiscuits! Woohoo!
Boobiscuits for Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Breast Cancer awareness is a very personal cause for me and so I will be making a donation to Breast Cancer Now for every box of Boobiscuits sold, and it would be fantastic if you would like to do the same too. Last year our bonny Booby inspired biccies went down a treat and so we are bringing them back for 1 month only. Keep your eyes peeled from 1st October - treat a breast friend or yourself and spread a little love whilst raising money for an incredibly worthy cause.
Breast Cancer Research and Care
This year in the UK 55,000 women and 370 men will receive a breast cancer diagnosis (source: BreastCancerNow.org). Breast Cancer Now support people living with breast cancer and their families, through life-saving research and care. Their work is essential, yet sadly the impact of coronavirus has meant research lab closures and delays in appointments and treatment for thousands of people, so support is needed now more than ever.
Making a Difference
But we can make a difference. Show your support and wear it pink on 22nd October.
If you would like to make a donation to this special cause, it would be incredible! Every single penny is most gratefully received - you can join me by clicking through to my just giving page 'Mary's Boobiscuits for Breast Cancer Awareness' here
Give Your Boobs Some TLC
Breast care nurses at Breast Cancer Now give the following advice about keeping tabs on your breasts:
Touch your breasts: can you feel anything new or unusual?
Look for changes: does anything look different to you?
Check any new or unusual changes with a GP
Everyone will have their own way of touching and looking for changes.
Get used to checking regularly and be aware of anything that’s new or different for you.
Check your whole breast area, including up to your collarbone (upper chest) and armpits. (Source: BreastCancerNow.org)
