I don't recall how I found out about the save the tatas company. I know they were on The Vic McCarty show when I was going through treatment, and I liked their message. Yes cancer is serious business, being diagnosed and going to doctor visits and chemo and radiation for months at a time can take a toll on anyone.
That is why I like the Save the Tatas mission and message:
Laughter heals. Of course. I have blogged about my positive mental attitude and wicked sense of humor. If I didn't have that I probably wouldn't have gotten through treatment. Recently we had founder of Save the Tatas Julia Field Fikse on the Vic McCarty show. She was telling us a story about her wearing the shirt below:
She told us this funny story about walking in Pasadena, CA and a car screeched right by her, and a guy yelled out of his car, I totally was!!!! What a great story. What a great message. I love the fact that they bring humor to breast cancer awareness. I am for anything that brings humor and a positive message to an important cause.
Its always surprising, when you are going through treatment, what will bring a smile to your face. Save the Tatas did that and continues to do that for me now that i am post treatment and into survivorship.
One of my favorite products from Save the Tatas is Boob Lube. Now I know what you are thinking and you can get your mind right out of the gutter. It's the original breast check soap. It is a fun reminder for you to do your monthly breast self exams.
There are lots of companies out there that promote breast cancer awareness, but I haven't seen one as fun as Save the Tatas.
