12 Most Boobylicious Cancer Slogans
Brandie McCallum, a colleague and friend was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and in late April underwent surgery to remove the cancerous cells detected through regular checkups. She courageously turned the event into a public awareness campaign by sharing her experiences through a self-created Twitter hashtag: #bewbluv.
And the community rallied with an effort that was simply awe inspiring. On the day of her surgery, one by one friends began tweeting positive thoughts on Twitter using her #bewbluv hashtag, eventually becoming a viral tidal wave of positivity; a digital Kumbaya. By the end of the day, the mob-tweeters ranked in the thousands reaching millions of people around the world. The love spilled over onto Facebook, Pinterest, Google+, blogs and even onto a morning radio show (99.7 The River). The overwhelming response caused the hashtag to trend across the US, Canada and Japan, raising even more awareness for the disease and prevention.
I was completely captivated by the stream of tweets throughout the day and in particular, the war-chants against this deadly disease. They were simultaneously entertaining and empowering so I thought it worthy to list the 12 Most Boobylicious “Beat Cancer” Slogans tweeted during the #bewbluv campaign for my friend Brandie.
1. Big or small, save them all!
2. Don’t let cancer steal 2nd base!
3. My boobs are fake & fabulous, the real ones tried to kill me!
4. Boobs, they could use your support!
5. A feel a day keeps the doctor away!
6. I fight like a girl!
7. Love kills cancer
8. I pink I can, I pink I can…
9. Kicking cancer’s ass, one boob at a time
10. Whoever said winning isn’t everything, obviously wasn’t fighting breast cancer
11. I’m too sexy for my hair!
12. Cancer is a word, not a sentence!
I’ve never been so proud to be a member of this online community as I was on April 23rd, 2012 when a community gathered to generate shock waves of positivity and support for a friend. I was humbled by the spirit demonstrated and proud to have been a small part of it.
Please share this post and/or these slogans so that their spirit might encourage and inspire other women suffering from breast cancer and to remind those who aren’t to get regular checkups.
