Boobs or Brains

It’s Cancer Awareness Month and that’s the title (above) that pops in my head!.   Feel your Boobies is a clever way to get the point across about breast cancer.    There are countless campaigns to protect and preserve our body parts.

Will BRAINS ever be given the same “fondled” regard in the media as Breasts receive?

An earlier post on this blog  made note that Domestic Violence Awareness Month is also observed in October.  Have you read in the news,  heard on the radio, watched on TV or surfed the Internet to learn about the effects of Domestic Violence?   Probably not.    Maybe because the health hazard starts with the brain, is purposely perpetrated by a person, may be more difficult to detect — or — it is more unnerving to discuss.  The purple ribbon is the symbol for DV Awareness with the first known use in 1991.  A significant horrific event in Canada lead the Eastern Hemisphere in moving forward with campaigns and public education.

The symbol for Cancer Awareness started off with a pink ribbon – then transformed into a multitude of logos, campaigns, events.

Learn about or participate in a Think Pink event in your area.

Wear a button, a ribbon, a T-shirt, paint a pink picture, have a pink drink, etc.

And — This photo is the most unusual presentation I’ve seen!
