Breast Health Awareness Month: Your Guide to Self-Examinations
Why Breast Health Awareness Month MattersBreast Health Awareness Month (BHAM) is an annual campaign dedicated to educating individuals about the importance of breast health and early detection of breast cancer. The campaign is designed to empower people of all genders to take charge of their health through regular breast self-examinations.
MAAREE's Partnership with CoppaFeel!At MAAREE, we are proud to have a long-standing partnership with CoppaFeel!. Our commitment to breast health awareness led me to participate in the Scottish Highland Trek in 2021 alongside celebrities like Giovanna Fletcher, Candice Brown, Gemma Atkinson and my team captain Selasi. Together, we trekked to raise awareness and support CoppaFeel!'s mission of educating young people about the importance of early detection.
The Importance of Self-ExaminationsOne of the most powerful ways to take control of your breast health is by performing regular self-examinations. CoppaFeel! provides an excellent resource on their website, Know Your Normal, which guides you through the process of understanding what is normal for your breasts. This resource helps you become familiar with how your breasts look and feel so that you can easily detect any changes.
How to Check Your Boobs for Cancer
Knowing how to check your breasts for cancer is a critical skill that everyone should possess. CoppaFeel! offers a comprehensive guide on their website, How Do I Check?, which explains the step-by-step process of performing a breast self-examination. Regular self-checks can lead to early detection, which is often the key to successful treatment and recovery.
