October has come to an end, but work towards finding a cure and bringing awareness is ongoing. We celebrate ALL Women who have won the fight against #BreastCancer and we lift up women like Jeanetta M. Johnson who are Standing Up with a message of hope and inspiration to help other women understand they too can win if diagnosed.
Jeanetta teamed up with Mayvenn Hair and BrightPink.org during #BreastCancerAwarenessMonth 2017 to enlighten women on the symptoms of breast and ovarian cancers, and on the importance of educating themselves so one will know what to look out for.
Remember, BlackWomenStandUp’s – #BWSU #BreastCancerAwareness Hashtag #CheckUpOnIt for the purpose of remaining cancer free and early detection.
Thank you to Jeanetta M. Johnson.
Remember if you would like to Celebrate a Survivor in Your Life on our Survivors’ Wall or Honor a Love one who has passed on from breast cancer on our Memorial Wall for Black Women and Women of Color, feel free to reach out through our Contact Us Page or email Contact@BlackWomenStandUp.com.
Peace and Love.

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.
