Now days, “cancer” is a trigger word that causes everyone to simply scatter into a panicked state as soon as they see anything that has to do with this often deadly and hard to predict disease. That being said, proper detection is key to making sure that you are able to stick around for the long run. If you are a woman and want to stay aware of what to look for for breast cancer, this poster of lemons is exactly what you need.
It was invented and put online by the Worldwide Breast Cancer organization, and spread far and wide by a survivor herself that wanted to share her experience with the world and get the information out there, Erin Smith Chieze. She spoke about her story, explaining that this chart is what made the different for her, what enabled her to see her cancer symptoms and get them properly diagnosed and treated so that she could have a chance.
This poster gives women the ability to see the different signs of cancer and gives them the ability to talk about it in a safe way while still educating themselves. So, you can see how it is so important to get this information out there for each woman to watch for. It could potentially be life-saving.
