This week I would like to use my #TOTW to highlight the following:
“…while 90 per cent of breast lumps are not cancerous it is always advisable to have them checked.” http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/health-and-families/health-news/woman-shares-photo-of-dimple-to-raise-awareness-of-breast-cancer-symptoms-a7134226.html
Please read it and share it amongst your friends on social media. If just one person checks themselves that wouldn’t have done so then it will be worth it. Simple as that.
How are we all? As a follow-up to last week’s blog about how *NOT* to use social media, I thought it would be good this week to highlight a story about how *TO* use #SoMe and so my #TOTW this week is:

For all the criticism that social media comes in for, it does have many positive uses. Those people that choose to share information about their private lives in such a way as this i.e. for the benefit of others should be praised and applauded, not derided. Like any media in life, whatever form it takes, if used appropriately it can be done so for the greater good. Unfortunately the doctor I mentioned in last week’s #TOTW chose to use social media for negative and mean-spirited purposes. This story shows that when used positively it can also save lives…literally.
Thanks for reading! Please share this with your friends and family. It only has to be seen by one person and you never know how much good it might do!
I’ve just had a trawl through last month’s tweets and there is one I want to pick out for another airing as it’s such an important message:
is not just a female thing guys
You might not have known it was…*IS*…possible for blokes to get breast cancer, so please, just spare a few minutes to click on the link and find out how to examine yourselves. It’s not just your balls you have to play with!

Over and out.
