It was 2004 when my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer at 53. She was lucky, though. We all were. They found it in Stage 1 and all she needed was radiation and a lumpectomy. Her scar from the entire ordeal is, quite literally, tattooed on her breastbone. Just one little dot of ink.
As many of you know, in the Western parts of the world October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so I’m going to dedicate today’s post to self-examination and awareness in general.
I’m also going to thank Modesty Ablaze because if it wasn’t for her, I’d have completely let October slip by just as I have other years without connecting the tattooed dots.
I also have extra special treats for you all this week. First, a sweet anonymous friend from Instagram has agreed to participate and represent the smaller ladies! I am so so so excited! We big jugged ladies are far over-represented here than the littler ladies. And second, we have one of the few and rare male submissions!
Thanks again for making Boobday a highlight of my week and I look forward to the Halloween themed tits next week!
Full Boobday Guidelines here.
One of two ways to participate: 1) either be one of the first 3-4 people to submit a pic OR (OR, not AND) 2) submit a link below to your own blog post for Boobday. And don’t forget to comment on everyone’s posts! This is all about spreading the love!
There’s a placard my mother gave me which hangs on the shower head with instructions on how to check for lumps. I don’t check every time I’m in here, but it’s often enough.
NOT my tits:
Oh and I think I’m supposed to tell you why I’m sending you my boobs… hmmm… I love my boobs and I’m wanting to share small breasts to help you give more women confidence that tiny (and old) can still be sexy! I’m 47 now, but these boobs are 46! Lol!
Sunny day boobs. Boy toy couldn’t meet. Had to remind him what he was missing.
Hubby thinks shot is perfect because it is not “posed for boobday”………I’m not convinced because I hate my tummy showing!
1) October is (in UK at least) “Breast Cancer Awareness” month – we MUST #SaveTheBreast! – and many are still unaware that men CAN ALSO get “breast cancer”..
((Men don’t have “boobs”, though some have “moobs” / “man-boobs”.))
2) in response to your post re body confidence, self esteem, etc, and our exchange of comments (incl Dawn D, today, thank you both), this – if you publish it – will be MY “very first” *publicly-published* image of my slender-body “breast” (& midriff).
