Breast Cancer.

Two words merged together simply in a sentence, that uproot friends and family so easily. So many of us in the community have witnessed, been diagnosed with, heard a story about: breast cancer. For the month of October, we wanted to use our platforms, to amplify those stories yes, ๐—ฏ๐˜‚๐˜ ๐˜๐—ผ ๐—ฎ๐—น๐˜€๐—ผ ๐—ฒ๐—ฑ๐˜‚๐—ฐ๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ฒ ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ ๐—ณ๐—ผ๐—น๐—น๐—ผ๐˜„๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐—ผ๐—ป ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ด๐˜‚๐—น๐—ฎ๐—ฟ ๐˜€๐—ฒ๐—น๐—ณ ๐—ฐ๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—ฐ๐—ธ๐˜€, ๐—ป๐—ผ๐˜ ๐—ท๐˜‚๐˜€๐˜ ๐—ณ๐—ผ๐—ฟ ๐—ข๐—ฐ๐˜๐—ผ๐—ฏ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ.

While the phrase #FeelUpYaBubbies may rub some people the wrong way, I believe it jolts action into women to remember how important it is to check yourself.
