INFO BOOTH AT COMMUNITY HEALTH FAIR
   Many schools participate in community health fairs, where
    you can set up a breast cancer information booth.
   Before the health fair, print brochures provided at the
    following websites in the primary languages of your target
    population.
   During the informational session, focus on prevention and
    early screening techniques. Provide cards from primary care
    centers that offer mammograms.
   If possible, give out the APAMSA pink ribbons to visitors,
    explain its meaning, and encourage them to tell others about
    it.

   Rough idea:   Tribute to original pink Breast Cancer
                  Awareness Ribbon
                  The APAMSA pink ribbon is in the shape
                  of the Chinese character for “woman.” The
                  heart in the center symbolizes a woman’s
                  love for her family and her life—reasons to
                  perform routine breast cancer screening
                  tests, including mammograms and self
                  breast exams.

              This October,




 Breast cancer is on the rise among APA
women. We need YOUR help in getting the
    word out. Join us in an education
  campaign to empower Asian American
 Women with knowledge. Let them know
that they are not alone in the fight against
           BREAST CANCER
In the Shower
    Fingers flat, move gently over every part of each breast. Use your
    right hand to examine the left breast, left hand for the right breast.
    Check for any lump, hard knot, or thickening. Carefully observe any
    changes in your breasts.

Before a Mirror
   Inspect your breasts with your arms at your sides. Next, raise your
   arms high overhead.
   Look for any changes in the contour of each breast, a swelling, a
   dimpling of the skin, or changes in the nipples. Then rest your palms
   on your hips and press firmly to flex your chest muscles. Left and
   right breasts will not exactly match—few women's breasts do.

Lying Down
   Place a pillow under your right shoulder and put your right arm
   behind your head. With the fingers of your left hand flat, press your
   right breast gently in small circular motions, moving vertically or in a
   circular pattern covering the entire breast.
   Use light, medium, and firm pressure. Squeeze the nipple; check for
   discharge and lumps. Repeat these steps for your left breast.
