While I have definitely come across a few too many pictures of celebs… Ahem, Gwen Stefani (you totally clicked on that link, you pervert! LOL)… Letting their children suck away, like they would a sugar laden lollipop, in public no less, that is NOT what this post is about!
October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month if you weren’t already aware… (really, all months should be though)
And roughly 1 in 8 U.S. women will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. Gentlemen, don’t think this type of cancer discriminates based on sex, you guys too have a 1 in 1,000 chance of developing the cancer. (For more statistics on breast cancer, click here).
Obviously breast cancer is no laughing matter. The only time breasts are actually a laughing matter are when they look like this…
Alright stop laughing for a second so you can take a minute to remember those who have be affected by breast cancer, whether it be you, a loved one, a friend, celebrity…
Here are a few celebrities who have been hit with the cancer, yet were strong enough to combat the intruder!
Richard Roundtree (see, men are affected too!)
There are so many more celebrities that have been affected and have beaten the disease, which should give all those who may be struggling or know someone who is struggling hope!
It’s time to baby your breasts! In order to do so… follow these preventative measures!
