The good folks at Fuck Cancer have long proclaimed September as the month of early cancer detection, and this year they’re back with another hilarious and informative interactive campaign to help spread the word. After all, 90% of cancers are curable if caught in stage one! [There's a fact that will have you racing to touch yourself in front of the bathroom mirror ...]
Last year’s “Donate your Status” F-tember campaign resulted in over 12,000 messages being shared over Facebook and Twitter to raise awareness for early detection. This year, the Facebook app we developed for our good friends takes things a step further by allowing cancer fuckers to share images with inspiring, in-your-face quotes.
Former crowd favourites like “Sex shouldn’t hurt (unless you’re into that kind of thing …)” have returned but some new tips, tricks and facts have been mixed in too, like “Dear tanning mom, stop. Just stop.”
Visit the F-Tember Facebook app to donate your voice to this cause and be a hero by donating your voice every day this month to Fuck Cancer. When you’re done basking in the glow of your own awesomeness (not the glow of a tanning booth), tell everyone else to be as awesome as you are!
As a bonus, here’s the video created by Fuck Cancer and Funny or Die for the Fuck Cancer #touchingourselves Video Contest! The contest celebrates self examinations and asks contest entrants to submit a video or a script about a racy or absurd self-exam situation that will also teach people how to ‘check yourself before you wreck yourself’. Who knew early detection could be this much fun?
