  2. I don't do the exams, unfortunately.. but it seems the cancer might be in my family history.

    ReplyDelete
  3. Absolutely~ breast cancer runs in my family and so we're all very careful with paying for the signs. This is a wonderful giveaway. Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  4. I do, my grandmother is a breast cancer survivor, and my sister had a scare a few years ago. This is not something I take a chance on.

    ReplyDelete
  5. I admit. Once in a while I do. Not nearly as much as I should though. I always seem to forget.

  22. I do but like some of the others, not as often. I had my first mamogram this year, too. My grandmother lost both her breasts, and then after remision for 15 years the cancer came back.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Im sorry to hear that. Your Grandmother is/was a brave woman.

  23. Well, not yet. But I will soon. My husband already told me that breast exams is very important to do.

    Thank u for this giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Every month. I am midwifery student and it makes me feel more confident about it.
    I see many womens who doesn't know how to do it. Girls is very easy, very important, any difference you see in your breasts go immediately to your doctor. Breast cancer is treatable when diagnosed in its early stages!

    Amazing giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Yes. My aunt had breast cancer so I know it's important.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Yes I do. My sister-in-law is going through chemo treatments right now for breast cancer. It is so important to check.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  38. Nope because I'm still pretty young. I should start though!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Sometimes but not often enough

    ReplyDelete
  40. Almost all of my female relatives have, or have beaten breast cancer. Because of this I am in a very high risk category, so I do self checks often.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I try to remember to do them monthly.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Sometimes when I remember to do it. Once in a while I also get paranoid about this.

    I do and I also get regular ones done at my doctor :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. Yes, but not as often as I should.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I don't and my Mom stays on me as well she should since she has had breast cancer (16-year survivor) and my grandmother had it as well. I have had my baseline mammogram though. But the truth is self-exams work, my Mom found hers through self-exam and the mammo did not catch it. Sigh, must do self-exam tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I do self exams and also have annual mammograms due to my family history. My mother is a two time breast cancer survivor!


    ReplyDelete
  47. Yes, sometimes I do self exams.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I don't do them, I'm a teenager so I'm getting to the point where I should start doing them though.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I actually don't, although I probably should.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Yes, I do that regularly ^^
    Thx for the giveaway =]

    ReplyDelete

    Thank you for the giveaway

    ReplyDelete
  52. I do! Especially since I had a scare a year ago! I also had a friend have breast cancer 2 years ago. That is all it took. Way too scary.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I do since there is a family history of breast cancer

    ReplyDelete
  54. Sometimes. I don't always think about it though.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Yes, but I need to do them more often!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Yes, I do a self exam every month

    ReplyDelete
  59. I don't. But I should. It's really great of you to hold a giveaway like this and make people more aware so thank you

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  61. YES! Of course, my hubby likes to help to!

  62. I try to periodically remember to self check but normally it is just my once a year doctor's visit that they get checked. Hmmm maybe I should go do that now. :)
    Thanks for the awareness giveaway.

  70. Absolutely! My mother is a breast cancer survivor.

    ReplyDelete
  71. I absolutely do self breast exams. I used to have a cool shower hangy with instructions but it is pretty easy to do. My beloved Aunt Mimi, may G-d rest her soul, did not survive breast cancer. My family has a history on both sides and some carry the BRCA genes (and several relatives have had prophylactic surgery).

    You can read about my Aunt Lisa's experience here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/lisa-jey-davis/brca_b_1931330.html

    Don't know how to check your tatas?

    Thanks for this brilliant post! #savethetatas

    ReplyDelete
  72. I do! I am only 19, but I still check.
    My great grandmother actually died of Brest Cancer because she saw the signs, but never said anything. I do know 2 close friends that survived though because they caught it early. It is SO important to check yourself and to get mammograms.

    Winning this would mean so much to me!
    Thanks for this truly amazing giveaway! :)

  73. I do breast exams but I don't do them as often as I should. I have mammograms/ultrasounds every six months because they found a different looking cyst. They found it to be harmless but they still check every six months to be safe.

    ReplyDelete
  74. I do it sporadically. Not as often as I should as I am now 50 years old.

    ReplyDelete
  75. I don't do breast exams as often as I should, but it's happened. I need to get better with that.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Every month, and every year I have a mammogram.

    ReplyDelete
  77. I sometimes do self breast exams, but I don't do it religiously or anything. I should check more often though.

  78. Sure, sometimes.. I have cancer pretty big in my family so I always check..

    ReplyDelete
  79. Yep that's what the shower is for.

    ReplyDelete
  80. I've never done one. Thanks for the giveaway!!

    ReplyDelete
  81. My honest answer I don't know how! ..... I think I should though! I need to. :) Thank you for this giveaway! :)

  86. My grandmother died from breast cancer and it runs in my family so I definitely do self breast exams frequently.

    kesummer69(at)gmail(dot)com

    ReplyDelete
  87. I did once in a while but not as often as I should. I just have to keep in mind that it's an important thing to do so I could do it regularly.

    Thanks for spreading awareness and with a giveaway too!

  88. I have but not regularly like I know I should!

    ReplyDelete
  92. I do it every time I wanna get dressed.
    But I never try the way you wrote above.
    Thanks for sharing it

    ReplyDelete
  93. I do do self exams, but never as often as I should. Thankfully there is absolutely no family history of breast cancer, just all the other kinds... *sigh*

    Thanks for this wonderful reminder to all of us.

    ReplyDelete
  94. I have lump breasts, but I do the mammography every two years, because of family history.
