Hello, thank you to all the HubMobsters who took part in last week's Best gifts HubMob, we had 88 hubs with lots of original ideas for gift giving during the upcoming holidays. We had some new HubMobsters joining the mob and some old ones who came back specially for last week's topic. It has been a fun week full of surprises.
Here we go now, starting a new week in pink, to support October's Breast Cancer Awareness Month. All around the world, October is dedicated to raising awareness about breast cancer, a disease that can be cured when spotted in time.
Did you know that the best way to find breast cancer early is with a mammogram? But in some countries mammograms are not covered by the health services and some private insurance companies refuse to cover screening for breast cancer!
This week, we are going to join the pink ranks all over the world and we are going to be raising awareness about breast cancer.
Some ideas for a Hub on Breast Cancer awareness are
What is breast cancer How common is breast cancer Cancer hospitals Recipes for breast cancer patients (during and after treatment) Side effects of cancer treatment Male breast cancer Mammography centres in your area Where to find low cost or free mammograms Early detection signs and symptoms What should women expect when they have a mammogram Preventing breast cancer Treatments Risk factors for breast cancer Fundraising events in your area
To join this week's HubMob please follow the steps below:
1. START YOUR HUB CLICKING THIS LINK. Choose the "Answer the Request" green button. Choose the "MAKE A HUB ABOUT IT" option.
2. Choose a relevant title for your Hub to get a good ranking in the search engines, AVOID starting your title with "Weekly HubMob"
I started this hub before I knew it was the HubMob weekly topic, because I ran across the information and thought it should be shared. Risk of breast cancer can be lowered for even those who have a family history.
I wrote about my experience to show just how traumatic it can be for someone to coast along in life thinking that nothing bad can happen - and then get a reality check. Finding my lump was my reality check.
Still doing Best Gift Ideas - hope I'm supposed to post it here. More ideas for gifts for hobby and professional painters. Artists always need painting and drawing materials, but it can be hard for a non-artist to choose. here's a little help. http://hubpages.com/hub/Best-creative-gifts
Thanks for your message. I managed to post it to the gift section. Can't see how to delate it from Breast Cancer section. Hope that admin has done that for me. Seem to be having problems working these forums! Will send e-mails in future.
You did a very good job for a first HubMob hub. Everything is correct: 1) you started your hub from the answer the request link 2) you added the hubMob graphic and the RSS feed 3) you wrote interesting content 4) you came back to the forum to post a link to your hub.
well, I think I am going to start a long series of at least 5 hub with a minimum of 1000 words each. Don't know if I can finish it this week. Whatever I will try to finis at least a couple. I am one of those one-finger typist. LOL. Wish me some luck. I will start my work within an hour.
Good article, I think it's important for women and men to be aware of breast cancer, I work in the Oncology dept, and I talk to women about this all the time, it wasnt until I start working in the dept. that I found out about all kind of Cancer. I Pray everyday for healing for my patients.
Is it appropriate to write a more emotional hub? My Mum had breast cancer (and her mother before her, and her mother), and I was thinking of sharing my experience of supporting her - might be a bit maudalin but she's well now.
For Breast Cancer awareness month, I thought it would be important to discuss ways we can all prevent cancer and fight it once it has arrived. For that reason I wrote this hub on fighting cancer with food!
I want to write something too, but probably won't have time. I'm working on my PowerPoint on post-op managment after mastectomy (one of my first hubs). I'm presenting it (and one other topic) at the Texas OT Mt Central Conference in November.
Good thing, you brought this up, Princessa. The issue on breast cancer should be the priority of all nations and every member of the family. I investigated my family background and have found out that two of my cousins were afflicted with the disease---they didn't survived.
Looks like you're on your way! You started your hub from Princessa's link and are in the RSS feed. Your hub is on topic, contains a HubMob graphic, and contains the RSS feed. And you returned to the thread to post your link.
Thank You very much, i'm glad to be here. Never would i have dream i would tackle such an important issue for my first hub. I figured i would work my way up. I'm really excited that i'm jumping right in
Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women of all races, and the number two most lethal. Estimates for 2010 include over 260K breast cancer diagnoses and 40K deaths in women, and 2K diagnoses in men, in the U.S. There are currently more than 2.5M breast cancer survivors in the U.S. Read breast cancer information and facts, as well as stories of inspiration.
Princessa will announce a new topic Monday, usually by mid-morning US Pacific/California time. This "question" will not close. You can continue publishing on this topic. Just shoot me an email and I will add your hub/s to the roundup.
I always refer back to Princessa’s original list of suggestions for inspiration. Here are a few more ideas:
-Is the approach to treatment for male breast cancer different than the treatment of females? -Do breast implants make the detection of breast cancer more difficult? -Are there any statistical differences for breast cancer incidence with breast size? -Are experts fearful that girls with early onset puberty, thought to be related to hormones in our food supply, will be at higher risk for breast cancer? -Morbidity and mortality statistics for lumpectomy vs mastectomy? -When is the best time to have reconstruction? -What reconstruction options are lost with radiation therapy? -What are the most prevalent reconstruction procedures? -Lymphedema after breast cancer. -Misconceptions about breast cancer or reconstruction. -Incidence of breast cancer in women under 25. -Differences with treatment approach with BRCA. -Countries/races with lowest incidence of breast cancer and why might this be true. -Controversial or new breast cancer management. -Alternative or natural medicine approaches to prevention. -Alternative or natural medicine approaches for breast cancer. -Alternative or complimentary medicine cancer centers.
Joe B you are not in the HubMob RSS feed. You have to start your hub clicking the link in Step #1 of Princessa's initial post. Then add one or both of the HubMob graphics and the RSS capsule. Here's step by step with photos:
Many women require therapy for shoulder range of motion exercises after mastectomy. I prescribe pendulum, pulley, cane, wall walk, and table slide exercises for my clients. Exercises help stretch the soft tissues to regain shoulder movement, without stressing incision scars.
