Hello guys! If you’ve been following our blog you will have noticed that we’ve tried to keep our content light-hearted and fun. There is already a lot negativity in the news, so we’ve tried to keep this page very positive. However, with the recent passing of Boipelo’s mom due to breast cancer, we’ve decided to take a turn and try to educate you guys about the danger that is cancer. We don’t know much about it, but through the help of organisations like the CANSA foundation and other NGOs, we’re hoping to educate ourselves, while creating awareness of this silent killer.
As black people, we haven’t really been paying attention to cancer, but as we grow we realise that many of our own die due to this disease. And in many cases, the cancer is detected late, at a point where nothing can be done about it. This is why we want to dedicate October to educating our people with the hopes that more of us will go for regular screenings and know what to do in the unfortunate event of a diagnosis.
So, please take in this content and share it on your platforms so that we can educate as many people as possible about cancer, specifically breast cancer.
Please also interact with the content or give us feedback right here, or on our social media platforms. We are @Lamacheri on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
