This month marks the first Global Breast Cancer Early Detection Month.  This month is the compliment to the October Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Early detection month is spearheaded by the Know Now Foundation, of Scottsdale, Arizona.  http://www.knownowfoundation.org.


Two of my sisters and sister-in-law have had breast cancer, so I am diligent about self-examination and my annual mammogram.  I was listening to a radio broadcast about it last night and the expert said that 70% of all breast cancer patients have no family history of breast cancer.  Lifestyle is more of a contributing factor to getting the disease.  High fat diets, physical inactivity, among other things, are contributing factors to the development of the disease.  It is the second leading cause of death among women, second only to heart disease.




It is common knowledge that early detection is the key to survival.  While self-examination and mammograms are good preventive medicine, there is a new tool available for early detection.  Plexus Pink manufactures a self-examination kit.  What is different about this kit is the piece of material used as a barrier between your fingers and your breast.  This piece of fabric allows one to glide over the surface and feel something as small as a grain of salt.  Without the friction of the fingers against skin, it is more likely to be able to feel something out of the ordinary. 


This kit is saving lives! A video explaining how it works can be seen at http://www.justexaminethem.com , or http://www.plexuspink.com.   The kit sells for $35.00 and is good for one year of use.  This is very inexpensive compared to a visit to the doctor’s office, or the cost of a prescription, and a whole lot less expensive and more convenient than chemo and radiation treatments.


There is a TV commercial that talks about a shot to prevent Ovarian Cancer.  It says “I want to be one less.”  With either ovarian or breast cancer, I want to be one less, don’t you?


Order your kit today.  It could be the best thing you ever do for yourself.   Stay current with you self-exams and your mammograms.  Be one less.

  1. Pam,

    Thanks for promoting our fellow Diva (Debbie Mormino) and the good work she is attempting to do.

    That’s what sisterhood is all about!

  2. Hi Pam

    Cool kit and sounds affordable too. Thanks for the information. I had a breast “scare” a while back. I went to the doctor for a typical mammogram visit, and left very insecure. It seems they saw little white dots on one of my breasts that they wanted to examine further. I ended up on doctors watch for about two years, having to be re-examined every three months or so. They finally decided I was okay and put me back on yearly visits. The whole thing made me nervous, but I’m thankful that technology is advanced enough to catch a problem in its early stages.

    I also didn’t know that a person can still be at high risk even with no family history,that diet played such an important role. No wonder there’s such an urgency to get checked. Thanks again for sharing.

  3. Always a supporter of such awareness tips and very grateful to you for sharing this with others. I am not 100% sure, but think somewhere somehow, Olivia Newton-John was behind its original concept??? Will now have to check as it will drive me nuts!! lol
