Make A Boo-Bee For Breast Cancer

Updated on April 25, 2015

Support Your Favorite Boo Bees

I love Boo-Bees! The first time I saw one was right after my daughter was forced to take off one of those awareness rubber bracelets that said "I Love Boobies". It was not meant as an insult to breasts. It was a breast cancer awareness saying. Her school did not find it appropriate. When I first saw it I thought it would be a wonderful substitute. Being a Boo-Bee for Halloween will spread the word and it's a unique way of getting people talking about the subject.

What is a Boo-Bee

A Boo-Bee is a Bee dressed in a white sheet..... It's a pun on words for Boobies or Breasts. I love Boo-Bees would mean you love breasts. It honors women who have breast cancer.

1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in your lifetime

Approximately 80 percent of biopsied breast abnormalities are noncancerous

Nearly 207,090 new cases of invasive breast cancer were diagnosed in 2010.

Use A Ghost Costume, Add A Few Accessories And Your A Boo Bee

Choose any ghost costume and add a stinger, antennas, black and yellow gloves and stockings and you have been transformed into the real deal. Your a Boo Bee

Check Your Breasts

      Wonderful awareness campaign! Getting kids involved is never a bad thing. I'm very supportive of teaching children about the human body so that they are not surprised when they realize they have one. :)

      Great lens on Breast Cancer awareness and it is all this month. That school needs some education lessons for itself. I just ordered a black T shirt "Real Men Wear Pink" and told all those men out their, especially those married, to tell their spouse if they find something lumpy or wrong. Cheaper than paying a doctor to find out for you. Kudo's on a wonderful lens.

      My sister just got diagnosed with Breast Cancer and I have an aunt who is a breast cancer survivor, that means I am in a very high risk group. I haven't heard of boo bees before but I'm certainly going to bless this lens about boo bees.

      Boo Bees are an original. Reminds me of the day my 3 year old grand-daughter pointed at my bottom and said "You have a big bottie! I have a baby bootie!" Gotta love those grandkids.
