Feel your boobies
This brings me to one of my favourite charities, Feel Your Boobies. A non-profit organization that runs a campaign to remind women to, well, feel their boobies. They claim that simply feeling yourself up is just as effective at identifying changes or lumps as a formal self-examination would be.
The informal tone of the campaign is meant to get the attention of younger women, who are also very much at risk (Feel Your Boobies founder Leigh Hurst was diagnosed at the age of 33. Her cancer was initially identified through this form of informal auto-grope).
Check out the campaign's website, feel your boobies and remind your girlfriends to do the same (feel theirs, not yours... unless I'm invited and there's dip).
