Sunday is No Bra Dayyyy!! Some of us won’t be able to run in case of any emergency but we’ll still do it right?
No Bra Day takes place every year on October 13, in the middle of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Ever wondered why?
No Bra Day can be traced back to Toronto, Canada, and plastic surgeon Dr Mitchell Brown.
The aim of his original BRA (Breast Reconstruction Awareness) Day was to educate women about their choice for reconstruction when undergoing a mastectomy.
By 2014, BRA Day was being celebrated in 30 countries worldwide.
At BRA Day events, those affected by breast cancer can attend Q&A speeches with leading plastic surgeons, and hear inspirational survivor stories.
The aim is to raise awareness and encourage women to carry out self-examinations, screenings and make sure they know the signs of breast cancer.
Men and women who don’t want to go braless are also encouraged to take part, by wearing something purple for the day.
Ladies are encouraged to get a mammogram screening on October 13, which can help detect breast cancer up to two years before it can be felt by the patient or a doctor.
So don’t be lazy, get checked!
