REAL TALK, BOOB STYLE.
We sincerely hope that you have zero experience with breast cancer. We hope that this life altering disease is something that hasn't touched your life in any way. At. All. Unfortunately, if you're like most of us, this isn't the case. According to a study conducted by the American Cancer Society, 1 in 8 women in the U.S. will experience breast cancer in their lifetime. So pretty much - if it hasn't affected you directly, chances are you know someone who it has.
When we found out that our 29-year-old friend, Amanda Niello, had been diagnosed with stage two breast cancer, we immediately knew that our priority as a company would be supporting her and others experiencing a similar diagnosis. This personal call to action, along with the staggering statistics we continue to come across, quickly became the impetus behind the Boob Shop.
What is a Boob Shop? Well, this month, we have consciously curated a collection of ever-so-slightly-sarcastic breast referencing merchandise and made it available for your purchasing pleasure here on LISA SAYS GAH. Not only have we created a one-stop-shop for all things boob, but 15% - 100% of the proceeds from items gracing the virtual shelves of the Boob Shop will be donated to the UCSF Breast Cancer Research Foundation where Amanda Niello is being treated!
As much as we are excited to financially support a cure, our aim is to raise more than money during October's Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Cancer, in any form, sucks, but breast cancer is a significant issue for us ladies. Simply being A WOMAN is the first risk factor when you look at the prerequisites for a diagnosis. While aging is another, it's important to realize that young women are at risk for breast cancer too. More significant than any treatment plan? Early detection. So ladies! Get your boobs checked! Even if you think you're too young to be concerned.
SO! Watch this goofy self-exam video, try it out, and schedule yourself a check-up if it's been awhile or you feel something funky. Then reward yourself with some treats from the Boob Shop!!
Meet Amanda by reading her heartwarming interview and don't forget to check out her blog, Thanks, I Have Cancer for a candid look at life with cancer AND a sense of humor!
