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
For Immediate Release
Love Your Va-Jay-Jay Day
April 10, 2014
A Cancer Awareness Initiative Encouraging Women to #CheckUpOnIt
In Recognition of National Cancer Control & National Minority Health Month
New York, NY- April 9, 2014- On Thursday, April 10th 2014 in recognition of National Cancer Control and National Minority Health Month, BlackWomenStandUp.com is launching Love Your Va-Jay-Jay Day. A Cancer Awareness Initiative focusing on Uterine Cancer and other gynecological cancers that affect women. Love Your Va-Jay-Jay Day is a call-to-action encouraging women to stay on top of their health and support the initiative by using the hash tag #CheckUpOnIt in response to the day. Visit http://BlackWomenStandUp.com on April 10th for information surrounding cancer prevention, and to share what you will be doing to #CheckUpOnIt, which will be an annual initiative.
The goal is to encourage all women who are cancer free to #CheckUpOnit by making an appointment with their GYN, perform self-breast exams, discuss their family medical history and receive life-saving tips relevant to cancer awareness and prevention. Moreover Love Your Va-Jay-Jay Day celebrates the lives of cancer survivors as well as honoring the women that have lost their lives to this vicious disease. Help save a life by spreading the word to your family, friends and social networks by asking them how they plan to #CheckUpOnIt.
BlackWomenStandUp.com Co-founder Tiffany Braxton had this to say about Love Your Va-Jay-Jay Day, “this is personal to me because I lost my mother, Coretha Braxton to Uterine Cancer on April 10, 2013, and I wanted to honor her. This is my way of keeping her legacy alive and helping to save lives in the process.” BlackWomenStandUp.com will have a page dedicated to those who have passed on, and for those who are survivors; if you want to honor a love one please send in their photograph with their name, along with your name and message to BWSU@MidnightManagement.com.
BlackWomenStandUp.com (BWSU) is the vision of Tiffany Braxton and Alexandra Lutchman, it is a Movement/Community designed to Empower Women in all areas of their lives and to Stand-Up for Love.
