April 10th 2018 BlackWomenStandUp.com’s #LoveYourVaJayJayDay #GYNCancer Awareness

BlackWomenStandUp.com launched #LoveYourVaJayJayDay on April 10th, 2014 a year after Co-Founder, Tiffany Braxton lost her mother to an aggressive form of #UterineCancer.  Since then, it has been a mission for the ladies to bring awareness to the five types of #GYNCancers with Uterine Cancer being one of them.  Love-Your-Va-Jay-Jay Day is #BWSU’s Cancer Awareness Initiative and on this day the Hashtag #CheckUpOnIt is used throughout Social Media to remind women to stay on top of their health and #CheckUpOnIt to remain cancer free or for early detection.

We invite you to spread the word, and if you are a woman of color who is a survivor of any of the five types of GYN cancers and or #BreastCancer we want to celebrate you on our #SurvivorsWall, or maybe you want to honor a loved on who is a survivor.  We also have our #MemorialWall to honor and celebrate the lives of women of color who have passed on from one of the types of gyn or breast cancers.

Don’t forget to #CheckUpOnIt

“Love Your Va-Jay-Jay And Breast” Day Recap – Online Gynecological and Breast Cancer Awareness

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 :

  • 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

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