They’re very excited about lending their platforms to raise awareness and help spread the word out about FREE and LOW-COST detection services nationwide. Breast cancer affects everyone yet early detection and informed decisions saves lives and as such, Natural Hair mag, several celebrities, other media outlets and collaborative partners joined forces for this important cause.
“My hope is that my story and my influence help someone to not be afraid and to get up and get out and go get tested. Prevention is the key! The sooner you test yourself the better your chances are.” Stacey J The Social Enthusiast (Business owner)
“The mere fact that these (free and low-cost) services are provided is astounding… I am sure it is not common knowledge and it is just so wonderful to see that there are tangible solutions to those that couldn’t afford it otherwise.” Anashay expands.
Singer/Songwriter Cheri Maree remains thrilled and honored that her song “Time To Shine” was chosen by the “Be AMPED Campaign” for Breast Cancer Awareness because it was written to encourage and inspire people through life’s challenges. “It was written to remind us to believe in our magnificence, to be courageous and to have faith no matter what. These are the 3 qualities I have seen in friends and family members that have been stricken with breast cancer. As the song says, “With your Power, with your Faith, with your Vision, you can make it!” ”
Breast Cancer is a highlighted disease during the month of October, however, because of the disparities among African American women, the campaign seeks to keep it in the forefront throughout the holidays and the rest of the year – Give yourself the gift of health and knowledge and BE AMPED for the holidays. Celebrity ambassadors are all encouraging women to put their health first for the holidays. Natural Hair mag readers, your health is your wealth and it is priceless so please take a look at the following public service announcement.
