In Recognition of National Cancer Control & National Minority Health Month
New York, NY- April 9, 2014- On Thursday, April 10th 2014 in recognition of National Cancer Control and National Minority Health Month, BlackWomenStandUp.com is launching Love Your Va-Jay-Jay Day. A Cancer Awareness Initiative focusing on Uterine Cancer and other gynecological cancers that affect women. Love Your Va-Jay-Jay Day is a call-to-action encouraging women to stay on top of their health and support the initiative by using the hash tag #CheckUpOnIt in response to the day. Visit http://BlackWomenStandUp.com on April 10th for information surrounding cancer prevention, and to share what you will be doing to #CheckUpOnIt, which will be an annual initiative.
The goal is to encourage all women who are cancer free to #CheckUpOnit by making an appointment with their GYN, perform self-breast exams, discuss their family medical history and receive life-saving tips relevant to cancer awareness and prevention. Moreover Love Your Va-Jay-Jay Day celebrates the lives of cancer survivors as well as honoring the women that have lost their lives to this vicious disease. Help save a life by spreading the word to your family, friends and social networks by asking them how they plan to #CheckUpOnIt.
BlackWomenStandUp.com Co-founder Tiffany Braxton had this to say about Love Your Va-Jay-Jay Day, “this is personal to me because I lost my mother, Coretha Braxton to Uterine Cancer on April 10, 2013, and I wanted to honor her. This is my way of keeping her legacy alive and helping to save lives in the process.” BlackWomenStandUp.com will have a page dedicated to those who have passed on, and for those who are survivors; if you want to honor a love one please send in their photograph with their name, along with your name and message to BWSU@MidnightManagement.com.
