“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.

PSA: Reminder September is Gynecological Cancer Awareness Month

September is the national awareness month for  gynecological cancers, and ovarian cancer is usually  the most stand out cancer associated with this month  an is represented by the Teal Ribbon.  Black Women Stand Up continues its Cancer Awareness Initiative focused on GYN & Breast Cancers.  Our Love Your Va-Jay-Jay Day Initiative was started this past April on the 10th of the month, where we bring attention to GYN/Breast cancers with a focus on Uterine Cancer, encouraging women to #CheckUpOnIt.

September is right around the six month mark from April so we urge women to continue to be proactive with regards to their health. Remember early detection is the key.

Ladies we encourage you to #CheckUpOnIt and stay healthy!
