NOTD: Breast Cancer Awareness Mani

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, where everything turns pink. Not only do i love pink, but Breast Cancer research and awareness is a major thing all over the world and breast cancer affects millions of people around the world every day, whether this is directly or indirectly.

Breast cancer is now the most common cancer in the UK and it is thought that at least 1 in 8 women in the UK  will be diagnosed at some point in their lifetime.

In 2009, 48,400 women were diagnosed with breast cancer in the UK, which equates to about 133 women a day. But it isn't just women who are at risk of this. In the same year 370 men were also diagnosed with breast cancer.

Although more women are surviving breast cancer than ever before, research and awareness is still needed, so keep an eye out for various Breast Cancer Awareness items on sale, most are available all throughout the year, for example, the pin badges and keyrings, but there will be a few more items around this month.

Here is my Breast Cancer Awareness mani.



And while supporting this cause, don't forget to keep checking yourself as early detection is often key, and check out one of my favourite campaigns, Feel Your Boobies.


Feel Your Boobies uses media and other unconventional methods to remind women everywhere to check (feel their boobies) as often as possible. Check out their About Page for an inspirational story and to find out more about them. Or follow them on twitter @feelyourboobies.

Hope you liked my post, simple but to the point.

  1. The chances of surviving the disease vary greatly by the type and location of the cancer and the extent of disease at the start of treatment. While cancer can affect people of all ages, and a few types of cancer are more common in children, the risk of developing cancer generally increases with age. Thanks.
