I like the idea of telling cancer where to go. With apologies to my tender-eared readers: Fuck Cancer! Even better, is the goal of the charity, which you'll find on its website:
Fuck Cancer is a movement that activates Generation Y to engage with their parents about early detection of cancer. Over 90% of cancers are curable if caught in stage one- why the Fuck don’t more people know this? We’re creating a generation of early detection ambassadors who, by learning about what to do to stay healthy, what to watch out for, and what questions to ask, are taking control of their own health and the health of their parents.
Fuck Cancer is focusing on early warning signs and detection to focus on catching cancer when its curable. Believe me, I sure wish my cancer had been caught when it was at an earlier stage. Anything Fuck Cancer can to to help others avoid a cancer diagnosis, or catch it early, is good work indeed.
Check out Fuck Cancer's website to get more educated about various types of cancer. For most types of cancer, the website offers a cheat sheet and infographic. For breast cancer, information on self-examination is also there. You know how I feel about breast exams:
If you want to fuck cancer, check your damn boobs!
If you want your significant other to do the checking, that's fine with me. Fighting cancer is a team sport.
