Boobies in October

We so needed a change. Jorge's custom order is complete and he is chewing his nails for the package to arrive and to hear what the out-come is. And so I got him about keeping busy.

And so he did - he is now helping me with our HatMasters Etsy Store store (our goal is 75 items in there by Oct 1st and I am thinking we are not going to make it - but we sure will try).

We from time to time will buy patterns if we can get it for under $1.00 and we found this pattern at a thrift store (I wish I could remember the name of it - because this lady who helped us was drooling all over Jorge - we stated he made Barbie clothes and if they had any patterns - well this lady went far beyond service trying to please Jorge - see I am soooooooo lucky!!)....

With October being Breast Cancer Awareness we wanted to show our support for this - we have friends that have faught and won the battle (thankfully it's not in either of our families YET).. So he wanted his first hat to support this cause (I have a childhood friend I've called uncle that had breast cancer so have your husband do this with you - not only to show support but you just never know!! says this:

Areas to check:
  1. Outside: armpit to collar bone, and below breast
  2. Middle: the breast itself
  3. Inside: the nipple area
Things to look for after you shower:
  1. Liquid coming from nipples
  2. Puckering of the skin
  3. Redness or swelling
  4. Change in size or shape
We prefer the shower but you can also do a BSE lying down in bed. Do it in a place that is most comfortable and effective for you. The important thing is that you do it.
If you feel any lumps or changes, call your doctor. Remember most lumps are not cancer. It's not about finding cancer, it's about knowing what is normal for your breasts. If something does not feel normal, call your doctor.
Three Step Approach:
The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation recommends a 3-step approach to breast cancer screening that includes, depending on a woman's age, a combination of mammography, clinical breast exams and breast self-exams.
  • Monthly breast self-exam beginning by age 20.
  • Clinical breast exam at least every 3 years beginning at age 20, and annually from age 40 on.
  • Annual screening mammograms beginning at age 40.

So I wish to say to my husband congrats to his first hat... We will be seeing a lot more of Jorge future hats as he is working on them now...

  1. Everyone loves your husband, don't they?
    Love this post. I kind of worry about it from time to time not having insurance and not being able to get checked professionally.

  2. Love the hat you did great Jorge
