October is breast cancer awareness month, and Wee Wee Frenchie wants to celebrate boobies! Since we all have breasts, some more noticeable than others (we will explain more in the next paragraph), we want to celebrate "us!" Do we really need an excuse to celebrate all of us lovely people? No, but we are giving you an excuse to stand up and shout, "I am awesome!" Now that you know that you deserve an applause, let us explain why we want to celebrate.
One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.¹ There are at least eight people in your life, right? That means you may not be diagnosed with breast cancer but you may be the sibling, the parent, or the friend who offers emotional support to someone in need. Also, breast cancer does not only affect women, it also affects men. Although men are 1,000 times less likely to be diagnosed with breast cancer, it still occurs. Bottomline, we need to continue to raise awareness about breast cancer so that early detection can save lives, while continuing to donate to research efforts until this disease is eradicated.
So why did we celebrate you? Without you, we cannot continue this battle alone. We need everyone to continue to stand together through providing emotional support to someone battling breast cancer, raising awareness by sharing your own story or participating in a breast cancer walk, or by donating money to breast cancer research. However you can support the fight against breast cancer, no effort or gift goes unnoticed.
To donate to breast cancer research:
Wee Wee Frenchie is committed to raising awareness both for human causes, as well as for the safety and well-being of all pets and animals. Breast cancer may not affect canines specifically but their unconditional love and snuggles give us, and so many others, the courage and strength to carry on during difficult times.
