Today #BWSU Celebrates Shatysha Billingsley – Women Who Won Against Breast Cancer

April 27, 2017 marked Shatysha Tysh Billingsley’s one year anniversary of being Cancer Free! Tysh, from Birmingham, Alabama, is another Queen who found the courage and strength to Stand Up to cancer and win. We here at BlackWomenStandUp.com (BWSU) celebrate Tysh and other Black and Brown Women who are breast and or gyn cancer Survivors.  These women serve as an inspiration to many who may be experiencing hearing those life-changing words from a doctor “you have cancer.”  Seeing survivor stories of women like Tysh and many others from #BWSU’s “Survivors Wall” will empower many to fight, and believe that they too can WIN!

Thank you Shatysha for allowing us to share your story and celebrate you. Congratulations on your one year anniversary of being cancer free.  Keep winning Queen, You Rock!

TishBMay the words below from Shatysha on her one year cancer free mark, inspire you as much as they did the BlackWomenStandUp.com Founders.

“Today I celebrate, praise God and jump for joy for being 1YR CANCER FREE!!  I must first THANK cancer. Thank you cancer for teaching me lessons I never knew I needed to learn.  Thank you for making me look at small moments as giant ones. Thank you for teaching me to live and love as big as I possibly can.  Thank you for introducing me to many new amazing people and giving me a greater appreciation for the people I already had.  Thank you for teaching me that its OK to accept help (set my pride to the side) Thank you for making me face the fear of losing myself cause without It couldn’t find my new self.  Thank you for teaching me to let go and disconnect myself from unnecessary stress.  Thank you for helping me find my true potential through havoc.  Thank you for showing me that gratitude should come out of every experience.  Thank you for giving me a new perspective on life, and Thank you for teaching me that I am stronger than you!!!  From the very moment of hearing those words “Ms. Billingsley you have cancer” my breath was shallow, I was scared and instantly felt pain that I had never felt before! Well my pity party didn’t last but a moment, I looked myself in the mirror, took a deep breath and asked God “now what?” (ask and expect an answer) At that moment I began declaring over my life John 11:4 msg “This sickness is not fatal, it will become an occasion to show Gods glory by glorifying Gods Son” so with that in my mind, mouth, heart and soul. Winning was not an option it was the only outcome!!”

Peace and Love,

#BWSU

This past Monday, April 10, 2017 BlackWomenStandUp.com’s Online Gynecological and Breast Cancer Awareness Initiative, “Love  Your Va-Jay-Jay and Breast Day” was a success.  The Founders took to social media to spread their message using hashtags #CheckUpOnIt, #LoveYourVaJayJay and #LoveYourVaJayJayAndBreast to encourage women to be proactive with regards to their health in order to remain cancer free or for early detection and treatment.

Ways to #CheckUpOnIt :

  • Perform a self-breast exam
  • Talk with your family about your medical history as it relates to cancer
  • Get informed about statistics, tips, prevention an early detection strategies

It was great to see supporters sharing messages, celebrating being Survivors as well as celebrating Survivors in their lives.

Skin Lightening In Africa, Why Are Women Bleaching Their Skin?

Skin Lightening: Why Africans Use It

Written by Jeanette Lekgabe: Guest Blogger

Jeanette

 Skin lightening products has flooded African markets and the industry is still booming. Research shows the countries contributing profits to the companies behind this method of “beautification” include Mali, South Africa, Togo and Nigeria. The question still remains…Why?

Africa, known as The Motherland, has been intoxicated by this “beauty treatment” of which most question, including me.  However, most communities in the continent seem addicted to this skincare regimen despite the lack of research regarding long term affects to the skin.  The black market, which preys on the poor, has vastly grown as the demand for these types of products has increased; meanwhile, the rich and famous can afford high quality products. They the money needed to access to the proper professionals who consult and provide their dermatological and cosmetic skincare needs.

This is how it works…

 The Have-Nots: Those that do not have the money usually get these products at a cheaper price from any street vendor that are usually located on most corners in the communities.  What some do not know, while many do, but choose to ignore is that most of these products contain a harmful chemicals such as hydroquinone, which is mainly used in paints and photographic developing solutions and also the most commonly used one mercury, all of which can cause irreversible damage to the skin when continuously used.

Now that you know the basics of lightening creams, let’s get into the history of how the categorization and segregation of Light skinned vs Dark skinned began…

The term “yellow bone” gained popularity in the United States of America and later made its way to the South of Africa.  South Africa refers to light complexioned Black people (more specifically, the woman). This term took a toll on most and segregated dark and light skinned individuals, which caused emotional conflict where most found it hard to discuss fairly or to even simply articulate.

Can this be a disorder?  If so, here are the most globally recognized symptoms:

  • Skin Lighting (Bleaching)
  • Veneration and Lack of Self-Love
  • Lack of Group Unity and Trust

The idea of colorism goes back to Colonial history.  Oddly, British aristocrats embraced and aspired to have pale skin like “milk” and “porcelain.”  Having light-skin was perceived to come with privileges, social profile, better employment and change of marital status.  Their concept and standard of beauty holds no place for beholding melanin and celebrating pigmentation.  It later became a tool for oppression. Contemporary marketing campaigns take advantage of this social dynamic and perpetuate this perverted myth by sending a strong and consistent message through their advertising:

The lighter you are you are significantly more socially accepted, therefore the more benefits in life await you. The darker you are the less attractive you seem to most.

This has become so ingrained in African society; women of darker complexion literally work harder to be valued in the community than those with a lighter skin-tone.  Her quality of life is influenced.  Her self esteem is impacted.

Unfortunately, this will always be the norm to most.  So to my fellow Beautiful, Dark-skinned Women -segregated or not, light or dark – the Dream is big and we have the Power.  Hustle hard, work diligently in whatever you’re doing, and choose the right way to live.  Fearlessly aspire to what pleases and satisfies you.  Be uniquely you and stand proud.

Make your own mark and WEAR YOUR AFRICAN SKIN PROUD!

I stand for BLACK, so should YOU.
