Just Ask! Screenings For Breast and Ovarian Cancer Campaign! (Win A Flip Video Camera)

CONTESTS | | March 8, 2011 at 8:44 am

CONTEST CLOSED!!

Congratulations Aleksandra!

Sometimes we feel helpless. We want to help but are not in a strong (financial) capacity to make donations.

Then campaigns step in and offer to do it for you and it becomes easier. Say clicking a “like” button gave $1 towards testing/screening for women who would otherwise not be able to afford it. (up to $25,000), now that would be a no-brainer right? So that is exactly all you have to do to help someone. It would be an utter shame to not reach that max

asap.

Today is International Womens Day, I kinda think the perfect start to get those “likings” done. Not that that is not enough to make your day (along with some other deserving woman) but how about adding a chance to win a Flip Camera too?

Entering this contest is easy. Go to the Just Ask Facebook page and click “Like” to learn more about BRACAnalysis Testing. Come back here and leave a comment on this post telling us you liked Just Ask. $1 will be donated to provide screening to women who could not otherwise afford it (up to $25,000) and you’ll be entered to win a Flip camera to help you capture your memories!

Contest closes 14th March 2011!

We’ve even got a few extra ways for you to enter:

1. Share this tweet: Your “LIKE” = $1 for Breast/Ovarian Cancer http://on.fb.me/JustAskHBOC Get screened. #justask

2. Share a memory or a thought about someone you know who has battled Breast/Ovarian Cancer in the comments section.

3. You can even head over to TodaysMama.com (link to: http://todaysmama.com/2011/02/just-ask-imac-giveaway/) and let them know that you “Liked” Just Ask and you’ll also be in the running for an iMac!

Disclosure: I was compensated to help pass this message!

    My mother in law is a breast cancer survivor. Her mother died from breast cancer back in the 70′s when my husband was very young. My mother in law’s first cousin died cousin died from ovarian cancer just a 2 years ago. While this particular hereditary cancer doesn’t run in my family, it is certainly a concern for my daughters.

    My mother in law had breast cancer and passed away a little over a year ago. She had gotten mamo’s each year and had skipped one year. Who knows what would have happened if she didn’t skip her exam.

    When I was a little girl, maybe 7 years old, my mother had a friend with breast cancer and we used to drive her to her treatments. I didn’t understand too much of what was going on at the time. My mother and I moved away and heard later that she had passed away of breast cancer. I was very shocked and it was the first time I realized how fragile life is.

    a friend of mine got breast cancer at age 36. She was told when she found a breast lump it was nothing and her dr would revaluate it in a year. In a year the revaluation showed that it wasn’t “nothing” and was cancer now progressed to stage 4. My friend did lose her battle a couple years after…perhaps things would have been different had she insisted on having it looked into and not waited that year…..LESSON LEARNED…..DON”T WAIT NO MATTER WHAT YOUR DR THINKS!!!

    I have two dear friends who have battled breast cancer. One is now a 6-year survivor and a true inspiration to others who are stricken with this terrible disease. She’s a huge fund raiser for breast cancer research in Orange County, CA. The other lost her battle just four months after she was diagnosed. It’ll be two years on Sunday…Miss you, Dottie!

    My grandmother passed from Ovarian Cancer. It took a really long time for her doctors to figure out what was wrong with her, and once they had (through gall stone surgery), it was too late. She went through the chemo, and lived a little longer, but not long enough. She was easily the most important person I ever had in my life until I was married and had children (and now I’m blessed to have others who are just as important). I miss her every day.
