Straight up, now tell me when was the last time you had a breast cancer exam?
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Avon Foundation for Women has partnered with Paula Abdul to launch this fun dance video and kicky tune with an important message… #CheckYourself
Paula Abdul wants you to know that if you’re over 50, you should be getting a mammogram once a year. So she created a dance song that sounds like her biggest hit, “Straight Up.” to remind everyone about this important health message.
“This campaign is very personal for me,” said Paula Abdul an Avon Global Ambassador. “My sister Wendy was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2000. As a breast cancer survivor and champion for the cause, she inspires me every day. My hope is that this new video will inspire women and men to take charge of their own breast health through screening, detection, and treatment.”
The new PSA/music video “aims to cut through the confusion related to screening strategies and encourages women to take control of their own breast health with three simple steps.”
Know Your Risks
Know Your Body
Talk To Your Doctor
Avon Foundation for Women wants to remind us all that “the key to prevention is knowing how to protect yourself, and early detection remains incredibly important. Women should be aware of their family’s health history, perform routine self-exams and visit a doctor annually.”
