“Love Your Va-Jay-Jay Day” April 10th, 2016

BWSU FB Updated Cover (1)

Stand with us as we work to save lives and celebrate survivors by encouraging women to #CheckUpOnIt and stay on top of their health to remain cancer free.
“Love Your Va-Jay-Jay Day” is an online, social media awareness campaign and BlackWomenStandUp.com’s Health Initiative.

April is also National Minority Health Month. Black women and women of color are being affected by breast and GYN cancers at alarming rates, not to mention we rarely hear about the five types of GYN cancers. Ladies, spread the word, and make sure you don’t forget to #CheckUpOnIt.  If you want to be a part of the movement, email us a pic or video of YOU holding your #CheckUpOnIt sign, honor a woman who is a survivor of breast or one of the GYN cancers by adding their picture to our “Survivors Wall” or memorialize a love one who has passed on by adding them to our “Memorial Wall,”  email BlackWomenStandUp@gmail.com with #CheckUpOnIt, Survivors Wall or Memorial Wall in the subject line.

Ways to #CheckUpOnIt:

Schedule that GYN appointment

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

5 types

Peace and Love,

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Central Park Walk

This past Sunday, October 18th in Central Park, New York City, women and men showed up in record numbers to walk in the Making Strides in Central Park Walk Against Breast Cancer.  There were many there walking in honor of a loved one who lost their fight against breast cancer, or to celebrate and walk in solidarity with a survivor in their life. Whatever ones’ reason for participating, it was great to see so many standing up against this horrible disease that has affected so many families.

Below are pictures from the walk that a few of our supporters shared with the BlackWomenStandUp.com community.

BlackWomenStandUp.com Continues its Breast Cancer Awareness Initiative…

Through its Cancer Memorial and Survivor Walls, Black Women Stand Up honors the lives of black women and women of color who have transitioned on from breast cancer, and celebrates those who are standing strong as survivors. The walls allow loved ones to submit a photo with a message in honor of their family member or friend and helps to bring awareness to this disease which continues to affect black women at disproportionate rates.

We will continue our efforts as we stand for a world free from cancer! Please take some time to visit our Walls to see the faces of the beautiful Queens who are being celebrated and honored.

Here are the direct links for each wall:

BlackWomenStandUp.com Presents its Cancer Memorial Wall

The end of April marked the finale of National Cancer Control and Minority Health Month, but our initiative surrounding cancer awareness continues.  Check out the BlackWomenStandUp.com’s Cancer Memorial Wall, where we pay homage to women of color who have lost their fight against cancer.  These women are no longer with us in the physical but  their spirits live on; if you would like to honor a love one who has transitioned on due to one of the gynecological/breast cancers we would love to add their picture to the wall.

For more information on how to add your loved one to the Cancer Memorial Wall email us at BWSU@MidnightManagement.com, to view wall visit: https://blackwomenstandup.com/cancer-memorial-wall/.

 

Also, you still have time to support our T-shirt Fundraiser Initiative for our ongoing work surrounding Uterine Cancer Awareness…will you help us help others?  It takes a village and we need you.  Visit our campaign at http://Booster.com/BlackWomenStandUp.

 

Peace and Love,

The #BWSU Family
