Hey, beautiful people with breasts!

I know that we usually think of women when we talk about this type of cancer, but men can have it too!

Don’t forget to check any of these symptoms and talk with your doctor about them. Don’t panic, since they can happen in other conditions that are not cancer!

  • A lump or swelling in the breast
  • Redness or flaky skin in the breast
  • Irritation or dimpling of breast skin
  • Nipple discharge
  • Pulling in of the nipple or pain in the nipple area.

You can check all details in CDC page, here.

Today I am writing a poem as a tribute to all the warriors that have suffered from this battle.

Pink it out!

Life is hard, I know.

We can win it, though!

Even if I don’t understand,

You can pick my hand!


Days will come and go,

Dare to cry, to scream to the flow!

We are humans in the end,

We have fights that we don’t comprehend.


Pink it out! Set it free!

Our emotions are just like they’re meant to be!


Life is hard, I know.

Such a precious moment just to go!

We don’t want to fight it anymore,

Can we just go through the door?

Feel the bad stuff all the way,

All I can do is stay!


Pink it out! Set it free!

Our emotions are just like they are meant to be!


Life is hard, I know.

The monster is dormant not too long ago,

Still, the knife has to come

And maybe we’ll have more days to become
