July #4PUF

Ciao!

Something I don’t always remember/get time to do is publish my  4 Previously Untweeted Favourites at the end of each month, but this month I have! It’s a chance for me to pick a tweet from each week of the moth that I have favourited (now “loved”) for one reason or another. They usually reflect my interests, and last month was no different, with the topics being LGBTI+, cancer, mental health and assisted dying:

(4/4) Meet Chalice – the first  superherosuperherohttps://www.theguardian.com/books/2016/jul/04/first-transgender-superhero-chalice-alters-aftershock

(3/4) We want to see 75% of eligible people taking up invitations for bowel cancer screening

(2/4) Too many people are made to feel ashamed because of a mental health problem. Our new video:

(1/4) What can other countries’ experiences tell us about what might happen in Britain if assisted dying were legalised? http://www.kingsfund.org.uk/reports/thenhsif/what-if-assisted-dying-legalised/?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=social&utm_term=thekingsfund

Hopefully you’ll find all of them informative and fingers crossed, interesting too!

As ever, thanks for reading.

#TOTW from 20-07-16 ‘#BreastCancer symptoms’

Ciao!

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.htmlbreast-cancer

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.

#4PUF – What’s it all about?

Hey!

Happy Bank Holiday to those of you in the UK, and just happy Monday to those of you who aren’t!

Those of you that follow me on Twitter or Facebook might have seen that I retweeted a number of tweets this morning. At or near the end of each month I pick one tweet that I have liked from each week of the month and retweet them with the hashtag #4PUF4 Previously Untweeted Favourites. Now of course Twitter went and changed favourites to Likes, but hey…i’m not changing my hashtag! LOL!

Here are last months #4PUFs:

Proud to support – the campaign for LGBT inclusive sex education

As you can see, the topics I like/favourite are pretty much the ones I tweet and blog about. There are just so many good articles out there its impossible to read/retweet/like them all!

I hope you enjoy reading them.

#TOTW from 21-02-16 ‘Abraxane’

Cioa!

Have you heard of Abraxane before? Chances are you haven’t – unless that is you have been diagnosed with cancer of the pancreas. A friend and former colleague of mine has just had such news and so this week I wanted to give more people the opportunity with my #TOTW to look at this petition on keeping the life-extending drug available to those who need it:

Please read & sign this petition: MUST be put back on CDF list to improve survival of
