Save Your Boobies!

By Alya Alyssa Kattan

As you may all know, October is breast cancer awareness month.  There were lots of events happening in Dubai.  For those of you who got involved in this wonderful cause, I salute you!  For those of you who haven’t yet, there is still a few days left in October.

Two upcoming events happening this weekend in Dubai worth mentioning are:

Date: 28

Event: Safe & Sound Pink Walkathon

Location: BurJuman

What is it?:  Join hundreds of other people for a 3.6km walk to show support for breast cancer and raise funds for the cause.

Entry is free for kids aged seven and under. Dhs 30 for kids aged 8 – 12 and Dhs 50 for adults.

For more info.:

Date: 29

Event: Hair for Hope

Location: JetSet Altitude Salon, Emirates Towers.

What is it?: Book yourself a free haircut between 11am and 9pm and donate your locks to those who need them.

We need to know the facts and the fact is, when it comes to breast cancer, every woman is at risk.  It’s important to catch the disease early.  If you catch it early, your survival rate is 98 % so we should all do our parts in saving our lives!

My beautiful ladies please make sure to eat plenty of veggies, fruits, beans, and fish.  Also exercise regularly, mediate, reduce stress, and please make sure to do monthly breast examinations!  Remember that the best time for a breast self examination is between day 6 – 10 after the first day of your period, when the breasts are not tender or swollen.

Love you all! Xx ❤
