Calendar Girls

Or

Modeling for Breast Cancer Awareness…

Earlier this summer I took my nieces to Bella Intimates for a fitting, because I believe every young woman should know what a decent bra feels like rather than relying on what’s available at local box stores or places like Victoria’s Secret (who has notoriously bad fitting help). Mom came too, and my SIL stopped in as well.

The shop owner told us about a friend of hers who makes calendars for breast cancer awareness… He had this idea to do a multigenerational shoot to “start them young”, and so we were happy to help out. I’m not sure which of these he’ll use, but it was one of the two.

…and then…

He told me about some idea he had, and I said Oh sure, I’d totally do that!

So, get your mammo, pay attention to your breasts, do your self exam, and don’t let them go the way of the dinosaurs…

And remember, men can get breast cancer too.

If you haven’t seen these, The Scar Project is a powerful and moving series of photographs of women (maybe there’s a man, I forget). The photographs are stunning, beautiful, and a bit raw.

    I’ve heard you talk about these guys before but I always thought they were way far away from me. Under 90 minutes is doable. I’ve yet to find a bra (other than homemade) that fits really well. Must visit!
