Hey guys.  It's been awhile but it doesn't really feel like it.  I hope you all have had a fabulous year and are ready to kick off the TENTH (can you really believe it?) Boobie-Thon!  

This year's 'thon officially launches October 1st, but start to get those cameras out, because we accept pre-launch photos on Monday September 26th (in FIVE DAYS!).  There's much to do between now and then. 

As always, we are in need of volunteers.  If you are interested in volunteering please please please get in touch.  There are a ton of spots open for pre-launch and event photos.  

Thank you all for your continued support throughout the years.  Let's make the BIG TEN the biggest yet!

Here we are, at the end of the 2010 Boobie-Thon.  It's been so much fun and an amazing week. I have to take a moment to first thank every single one of our volunteers...without them, we wouldn't be able to do what we do every year. And a special thank you to my friends and also the photo publishers Jenn, Misty, Peggy and Christy.

Of course, what would the Boobie-Thon be without all of those who donated and submitted photos.  Thank you tweeting with us, linking us, and all of your support!

It's hard to believe that we raised over $10,000 this year!  We have to give a special thanks to the Second Life Boobie-Thon who coordinates amazing events for the week of the 'thon then pledges the money they raised through Boobie-Thon!

I am truly overwhelmed with everyone's generosity and the love and committment that you all have for this event.  Thank you for another wonderful year!

Melissa

oh and ps...I'll have winners for the final giveaways sometime tomorrow!

Earlier today I drew two names for the BustedTees giveaway. The "Donation Winner" was Nathan and the "Photo Winner" was @yberrybot. Thank you all for participating!

Wrapping it up!

Post by: Mel at 12:51 PM on Thursday, Oct 07 2010 in Specials | Permalink | Contact

The other day I received a little package in the mail from Braza - included was mini roll of flash tape for me to try out.  Apparently you can use it to hold your clothing in place, closing unwanted gaps (I always have this issue!), repairing hems or even holding up your socks. I tried it out the other day on a shirt that I love, but rarely wearr because I always seem to be flashing the goods.  It's a very light half buttoned down blouse, and no matter how much ironing I do around the buttons to smooth out the fabric, it always bunches up.  So I whipped out this tape to give it a try and sure enough, it was easy to apply, it stayed in place, and it worked.

I've got a few extras here and would probably never get the opportunity to use it all since I work from home and I'm a total hermit.  So, I would love to send them out to a few of you.  Leave a comment if you are interested and/or tweet about the Boobie-Thon (come back here and post a comment linking to your tweet) and I'll choose a few of you to send these to.  Get your comment in before 11:59pm Eastern October 7, 2010 - cause that's when we wrap this thing up!

Long time Boobie-Thon support DaGoddess, has a great little deal for you and I wanted to pass along the information! Please check it out and spread the word.

So, here’s the deal: Any three images* from my Fundraiser 2010 Collection or from the 2009 Collection are yours as 8×10 digital downloads for a donation of $120 or more to the Boobiethon. The only exception are *the photos of the teens. Images of the kids are not for sale. HOWEVER, a photo session like that is available to you and a friend for a donation of $250. You will receive at least 90 minutes of a cool ass shoot with lights, camera, and some styling. Makeup is all yours though. You will walk away with at least 5 photographs of you looking awesome — available on disc, digital download, or as prints, your call!

To make a donation for this session, you must present me with a copy of your donation dated between Oct. 1 and Oct. 10 (extra time to catch up) to either Susan G. Komen or Nature.org on behalf of Boobiethon. Travel, food, and lodging to, from, and in Las Vegas is your responsibility. We simply provide photographic services at a special FUNdraiser price. Daytime/nighttime, it’s up to you. We can go to The Strip for a glam night of paparazzi fun, hit a studio for a fantasy shoot, or rock it out in the desert or on a dry lake bed and work with all the drama nature likes to serve up.

Simply go to the Boobiethon 2010 page, make your donation, register it with Boobiethon and then come back here, leaving me a comment with a valid email address. I will contact you, get your confirmation information, and we will work out all the details.

Thanks so much Dagoddess for putting this together for us!

Breast Cancer Information - Stay Informed

Post by: Mel at 11:03 AM on Wednesday, Oct 06 2010 in News | Permalink | Contact

What is breast cancer?

Breast cancer forms in the tissues of the breast and is usually found in the ducts (milk tubes) and lobules (milk making glands).  

Who can get breast cancer?

Breast cancer is found in both men and women.  Although breast cancer in men is rare, it can occur.

Am I at risk of getting breast cancer?

Being a woman automatically puts you at risk for breast cancer!  Also the following factors put you at risk

  • age
  • age at the start of menstruation
  • age at first live birth
  • number of first-degree relatives (mother, sisters, daughters) with breast cancer
  • number of previous breast biopsie (whether positive or negative)
  • at least one breast biopsy with atypical hyperplasia

source: http://www.cancer.gov/bcrisktool/breast-cancer-risk.aspx

Will a mammorgaphy prevent Breast Cancer?

No, but they can help saves lives by finding breast cancer as early as possible, which means the early you find breast cancer, the earlier you can undergo treatment and keep your breasts. When caught early, localized cancer can be removed without needing a mastectomy.

The biggest risk you take by getting a mammorgraphy is the fact that the test isn't perfect and that the cancer can hide and not show up (ie. a flase negative). However, with regular checkups, breast self-exams and mammographies, the chances of finding breast cancer early is higer than not getting a mammorgraphy at all. Beginning at age 40, you should start to get an annual mammorgraphy.

I found a lump, so that means I have breast cancer?

Not necessarily.  8 out of 10 breast lumps are benign (not cancerous).  If you find a lump or change in your breast tissue, contact your physician and take charge of your health. Sometimes we would rather not go to the doctor (myself included)  because we are afraid of what they will find.  But knowing about it and getting it treated can save your life.  So put the fear aside and make an appointment with your doctor.

Every 69 seconds a woman dies from breast cancer.  Check out 69seconds.org and find out how you can continue to help!

This one’s for the ladies!
