New Month, New week, new chapter.

This was me just one year ago amid chemotherapy after my 2nd breast cancer diagnosis and just last week I got to let out a sigh of utter relief and joy when I got my biopsy results back after feeling more changes in my breast, just 6 months after radiation. 

If there is one thing you do today, tomorrow this week, please check yourself. Get to know what is your normal and any changes go and get it checked out. 

How to get started:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1. Pick the same time each month.  

#feelitonthefirst makes it an easy day to remember

2. Examine your breasts in front of a mirror. Look for signs of swelling, redness, dimpling of the skin, contouring and changes in the nipples. Raise your arms overhead and repeat.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3. Feel for unusual changes in the shower. Check the entire breast and armpit area by pressing down with light, medium, and firm pressure looking for any lumps, hardened knots, or any other changes.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
4. Repeat self-exam lying down. Begin by placing your right arm behind your head. Using your left hand, move the pads of your fingers around your right breast and armpit. use light, medium, and firm pressure. repeat these steps for your left breast and look for changes in the nipples, including discharge.

Some gentle and healing glide always helps, and it was my own breast exam rituals using my Chilean Rosehip Seed Body Oil that I discovered changes in my breast and ultimately saved my life through early detection.
