Day 196: Protected Boobies

When I woke up this morning, I had the breast idea ever.  Since yesterday, my wife allowed me to donate her bras to support (pun intended) women in need, I decided that today I would help protect the things that fill those bras...

Breast cancer, like all cancers, is a scary thing.  It is also something that is far too common.  1 in 8 women will be afflicted with invasive breast cancer at some point in their lives.  However, for as terrible and awful as this disease is, there are more than 2.6 million women in the United States who can call themselves "Breast Cancer Survivors."  One of the biggest ways to become a survivor and to help combat breast cancer is through routine mammograms.  For many women who have a lack of access to affordable healthcare (and healthcare in general), mammograms are something that are far from routine.  Only 67% of American women over 40 have had a mammogram over the past 2 years.  That needs to change.  So today, for my random act of kindness, I am going to help protect boobies with one of the easiest random acts possible...clicking a button.  By clicking a button, the sponsors of The Breast Cancer Site will donate funds to provide free mammograms to those who need it.  It is literally the easiest thing you will ever do that can have a huge impact, so I ask that you join me in clicking here.  Join me in protecting boobies!!

  1. Just a note that breast cancer affects men also. A friend's husband has breast cancer and has responded to treatment so far.
