We started Love Your Va-Jay-Jay Day, a Gynecological/Breast Cancer Awareness Initiative on April 10, 2014, the reasoning behind this initiative is to bring awareness to women who are cancer free and give them information and support in order to remain that way, celebrate those who have survived this horrible disease and to encourage women to #CheckUpOnIt by staying on top of their health; and to honor the lives of women who have lost their battle and are no longer with us in the physical. BlackWomenStandUp.com created this Survivors Wall, to celebrate the many women of color who have fought the fight against cancer and won! They are Survivors and our (S)heroes. Here is where and how we celebrate them. Your courage, strength, determination and victory will inspire many, God Bless You All! Would you like to celebrate a survivor in your life? Send in their pic, with relevant details via email to Contact@BlackWomenStandUp.com and we’ll add them to our survivors Wall.
The five types of gynecological cancers are: Uterine, Cervical, Ovarian, Vulva & Vagina

I would like to thank God for my mom who is a Breast Cancer Survivor. She has beat it twice and I’m so grateful to still have her here 73 years young. My mom is a walking miracle and my inspiration, to God be all the glory. #CANCER AWARENESS
