Pinktober Glam Photoshoot
Our cancer awareness promotion during October gave a PinktoberGlam Portrait Photoshoot to three cancer-fighting ladies. We had a fun day with glam and glitter and further, we hope we will encourage you to go for a check up – as early detection is your best protection.
Pinktober Glam Cancer Awareness
The October Issue of Aquarius Magazine had some handy information that brought to light how applicable cancer check-ups are. One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. Statistically speaking, if you know more than eight women you know someone who is suffering (or will be). I would say that’s all of us.
The youngest women diagnosed with breast cancer in the UAE is 25 years old. However, most of the breast cancer patients are between 40 and 59 years old. If you diagnosed with breast cancer in an advanced stage you have statistically speaking a 23% chance of survival. That number rises to 98% if your cancer is found early! Please let these facts be enough for you to pick up the phone and make a check up appointment with your doctor now.
Prevention of Breast Cancer
The Magazine further states that simple things like walking 75 to 150 minutes a week reduces your risk, as well as avoiding alcohol and maintaining a healthy weight range. Staying fit for yourself and your loved ones, as well as regular check-ups, is all you need to do. Little steps every day to a healthy and happy life.
Cancer Battle Boost
I can only imagine how hard it must be fighting cancer. All our circumstances are very different and our battles are unique to that. Besides battle, there is still joy and time to refresh your soul so you are strong again for the hard part. Therefore I would like to help with what I do – photography portrait sessions inclusive of pampering, self-care, and a make-over. Besides Jaana, Muskan and Razika I hope I will be able to give a PinktoberGlam Portrait Photoshoot to fighting ladies throughout the year until next October is on the calendar again. If you know of someone who could use a PinktoberGlam Session please get in touch with me and tell me a few details here.
