Think Pink!

The tags on blogs have been tinged with colour lately.  Laura from Ciao Amalfi saw red, and Anne from Oxfordshire, and Rowena from Rubber Slippers, to name a few, have both posted with blue objects from their houses .

That gave me an idea. Many of you will be aware that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so I thought I might see things through Rose Coloured glasses with hope for a cure and post some pink things from my life in Positano.

I don’t want to rock anyone’s boat, but Breast Cancer affects us all.

I’m certain that everyone knows a person who has been touched by the illness.

Show your solidarity for these people.

Go on walks, post Pink, wear pink, give to research or simply hug a survivor.

Check, check check your breasts every month after your period.  It is treatable if you get it early. Get any change, however small, checked by your doctor.

P1010809

Have a mammography or ultrasound every 2 years.

Post your Rose Coloured Photos this month and let me know. I will do a post on October 30th linking you all together in solidarity for the victims, the sufferers and the survivors.

Think Pink! And remember that the 15th of October is Breast Health Day.
