On Saturday, October 7th, there was an hour-long twitterstorm – #BreastCancerRealityCheck – dedicated to the following:

  • Move beyond superficial “raising awareness” to focus on more education and research that will SAVE LIVES
  • Dispel the myths about prevention and early detection
  • Reveal the candid realities of people (women and men) living with ALL stages of breast cancer
  • Provide less-known, harsh facts about secondary/metastatic breast cancer
  • One of Breast Cancer Awareness Month’s favorite ‘pink fairy tale’ messages is that early detection saves lives. But what most people still don’t know is 20-30% of all early stage breast cancer will become metastatic breast cancer. THAT is the killer.

If you missed it, here are some of the reality-infused tweets.

Share a dose of reality with the #BreastCancerRealityCheck hashtag for the rest of October and beyond!
