Support the Cure with Upper Canada

October 6, 2011 in Life

As everyone knows October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM).  Every year this international the health campaign is organized by major breast cancer charities to increase awareness of the disease and to raise funds for research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure.  BCAM is also a prime opportunity to remind women to be breast aware for earlier detection.

I was recently made aware of a fantastic organization right here in our local area of Toronto, ON Rethink Breast Cancer.  Rethink Breast Cancer is an amazing organization whose mission is “To continuously pioneer cutting-edge breast cancer education, support and research that speak fearlessly to the unique needs of young (or youngish) women.”  They prove they are right on track with the recent launch of the new Your Man Reminder App currently available for free at the i-Tunes store and available for Android phones on October 17th (sorry Blackberry users, just add it to the list of reasons to get an i-Phone, can you tell I am bias?).

Check out this fun video showing off just what the Your Man Reminder App is all about.

After watching the video I just had to grab the app.  And in case you’re feeling nosy I chose Christian for my man, don’t be jealous you can grab him too if you want!   The app is used to stay on top of your breast health. The Your Man Reminder App includes the following fun features:

  • Customize – Update the App to fit your personal liking, with features that let you chose your man, his pose and more.
  • Hot Messages – You’ll love the attention your man gives to you, with messages like “Any guy would be lucky to have you” and “Give your breasts some TLC.”
  • Reminders – Tailor your calendar schedule with settings for weekly, monthly or surprise reminders directed by a sexy man of your choice.
  • Education – The App includes a special “signs and symptoms” tab to hone in on the importance of early detection.
  • Get Checked – Use a variety of scheduling options such as doctors’ appointments and many more.

Also, Your Man Reminder’s Facebook sharing capabilities will allow users to proudly announce when they’ve taken their breasts into their own hands and which sexy man from the App motivated them to check.  This will help remind the other women to stay on top of their breast health.

What a cool idea!  If you’re feeling as inspired as I am you can donate monthly or just once directly to Rethink Breast Cancer via their website.
