Breast Cancer Awareness Month

I read this post in Choc Mint Girl's blog and I decided to pass the pink penguin. Go here to read her post: Please Pass The Pink Penguin.

Before reading that post, I didn't know that this month is breast cancer awareness month. Nobody in my immediate or extended family has suffered from this disease, but I know how serious it can be, so I'd love to spread this awareness among women.

My aunt had some lumps on her breast a few years back. Gladly she's fine now after an operation and her breasts are still intact. I think for women, it's such a scary thought to find something wrong with our special parts, don't you think so?

Anyway, it'd be great if you'd write a post about this topic and help spread the pink penguin. Besides, I think the pink penguin looks SO cute. ;-D

I think Choc Mint Girl said it well in her comment:

"My aunt'd inspired us to do a regular check-up and not just take it easy before it's too late."

So let's stay healthy and be aware, ladies!!!


  1. Amel's Realm, you are doing a great job by spreading this awareness:
    ...'So let's stay healthy and be aware, ladies!!!'

  2. Surjit: THANK YOU for your support!!!! :-D

  3. Choc Mint Girl: It's MY pleasure. ;-D After all, I'm a woman, so I should help spread this awareness he he he...
