The Loss of a dear friend.

posted by:
admin

Hey everyone, Sorry i wasn’t up front spreading the message this past Boobie Wednesday. I was at a funeral for a dear friend.

My Friend Wayne passed away last weekend from Prostate cancer. He fought a long 3 year battle with his wife and family by his side. It was one of those unexpected things when he found out. A sudden lump appearing on his neck that kept getting bigger and bigger. The docs went in to remove it and after the tests were run they said it was Prostate cancer. It had spread to his neck and he did not even know he had it. After chemo and radiation he was told it was in remission, but then it suddenly came back after a year. He fought it again never giving up. He had said to me that staying positive was what he was going to do because he was stronger that way.

Never a dull moment with Waynee around. Im going to miss him so much. He was a fun guy who was always full of life and always on the go. He was a letter carrier for the South Toledo post office and a proud Pittsburg Steelers and Ohio State Buckeyes fan. I was lucky enough to go to a few NASCAR races with him and friends up at MIS. He was always giving me advice about  men and telling me that someday the guy that appreciates me will come along and sweep me off my feet. I never believed him but that’s the way it is between friends. I’m going to miss him popping onto messenger and seeing how the website is going or asking if i had went to the lake recently. He loved going out to Maumee Bay and watching the storms roll out over Michigan and Canada. You never expect someone so full of life to be taken from you so quickly. Im going to miss you Wayne.

Please guys, always check yourself, be it your dangly bits or your tits, just feel them. Any changes, any lumps, even pebble size bumps could be something. Women get reminded all the time because Breast cancer is very in your face now a days, but Prostate and Testicular cancer aren’t talked about alot and men seem embarrassed to say, “Hey, i felt my balls today and im proud of it.”

Here’s a few websites for you guys as to what your looking for and how to check yourself.

Nearly all testicular cancers are one of two general types: seminoma or nonseminoma. Other types are rare.

This disease occurs most often in men between the ages of 20 and 39. It accounts for only 1 percent of all cancers in men

Symptoms include a lump, swelling, or enlargement in the testicle; pain or discomfort in a testicle or in the scrotum; and/or an ache in the lower abdomen, back, or groin

From 2004-2008, the median age at diagnosis for cancer of the prostate was 67 years of age

Approximately 0.0% were diagnosed under age 20; 0.0% between 20 and 34; 0.6% between 35 and 44; 9.1% between 45 and 54; 30.7% between 55 and 64; 35.3% between 65 and 74; 19.9% between 75 and 84; and 4.4% 85+ years of age.

Based on rates from 2005-2007, 16.22% of men born today will be diagnosed with cancer of the prostate at some time during their lifetime. This number can also be expressed as 1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with cancer of the prostate during their lifetime. These statistics are called the lifetime riskX Close
The probability of developing cancer in the course of one’s lifespan. Lifetime risk may also be discussed in terms of the probability of developing or of dying from cancer. Based on cancer rates from 2005 to 2007, it was estimated that men had about a 44 percent chance of developing cancer in their lifetimes, while women had about a 38 percent chance. of developing cancer. Sometimes it is more useful to look at the probability of developingX Close
The chance that a person will develop cancer in his/her lifetime. cancer of the prostate between two age groups. For example, 8.30% of men will develop cancer of the prostate between their 50th and 70th birthdays.

      Hey everyone, sorry I’ve been slacking on posts but I’ve been busy with stuff going on for my kids.

    Last month Monica Gonzalez auctioned off the Alan Rickman autographed Boobie Wednesday Shirt. The auction brought in $405 that was donated to The National Breast Cancer Foundation.

   Monica worked so hard on the concept and even getting Alan to sign it, and her dad paid to have it framed.

My friend John Raco owns Essex County Drums in Windsor Ontario Canada and he is making a custom Boobie Wednesday snare drum that drummer Chris Adler from the band Lamb Of God is going to sign for us to auction off. I’m hoping it brings in big money. The proceeds for this will be going to Toledo Hospitals Breast Cancer center. My kids Aunt Tonia had Breast cancer and shes currently going through reconstruction. Shes the main reason i helped start Boobie Wednesday. We went to high school together and are the same age.

TIMEOUTNY_CITY HARVEST AD

Hope you’re doing well.  Thanks so much for all of your help lately with the Seminole campaign. I’m also working with City Harvest on a great campaign (http://www.cityharvest.org).  If you are not familiar with City Harvest, they are an organization that focuses on rescuing food to feed the city’s hungry men, women and children.   


NEW QR CODES GIVE CELL PHONE USERS INSTANT ACCESS TO WAYS TO SUPPORT CITY HARVEST
New York, NY – November 23rd – With demand for emergency food at record high levels, City Harvest is reaching donors with an innovative advertising campaign that uses technology commonly used by for-profit marketers but new to fundraisers.  On advertisements in print, phone kiosks, transit shelters, and on Facebook, City Harvest has incorporated a QR code, which functions like a barcode and can be scanned by mobile phones.  

This cutting edge technology offers donors the highest level of flexibility.  Cell phone users that scan the QR code will immediately have the option to go to the City Harvest website, read facts about City Harvest, view a video illustrating City Harvest’s work, and make a donation online or by clicking a button to call City Harvest directly.  Donors can choose the amount they wish to donate and get more information about City Harvest at the touch of a button.  

The QR codes can be found on City Harvest’s new advertising campaign featuring New York City residents that have taken action to fight hunger.  Though the food City Harvest rescues and delivers is donated, City Harvest needs cash donations to maintain their trucks and staff that are essential to picking up and distributing food.  The advertisements demonstrate the impact of donors who pull out their wallet or checkbook in helping City Harvest feed more hungry New Yorkers.

“In an era of mobile technology, potential donors want and expect to be able to act immediately,” said Jilly Stephens, executive director of City Harvest.  “QR codes allow New Yorkers just learning about City Harvest to get more information quickly and easily as well as give.”  

“QR codes are changing the future of donor-charity relationships. They allow nonprofits to interact with their donors by exchanging engaging content,” said Irina Skaya, marketing manager at Horizon Media. “QR codes can be used without monthly running costs and function without limiting the dollar amount donors give to the nonprofit.”

Despite other indicators that the recession has ended, agencies served by City Harvest have reported no relief since demand for emergency food spiked last year.  City Harvest works to meet greater need at soup kitchens and food pantries by rescuing and delivering food to some 600 programs throughout the five boroughs.  Currently, City Harvest helps feed over 300,000 hungry men, women, and children each week. 
 We are trying to generate some awareness for a really good cause, so any help you can provide in this would go a long way.

Thanks to Mike Pampalone From The Seminole Hard Rock For Promoting such great causes. Please at this time of year, Think of those less fortunate and give a little when you can.

 

City Harvest has a really cool initiative going on to drive donations using QR codes that I wanted to share with you.  A QR code is similar to a bar code that you would scan on your phone and would immediately get access to brand related content.  These QR codes will provide people with lots of City Harvest content and will also allow people to donate to a good cause (if they want to donate).  They can download the application “ScanLife” on their smart phone devices in order to scan the code.

I have included the official press release for the campaign below:

When I start to think about all the things I am thankful for this Thanksgiving, one of my very first thoughts is of my family. Not just my biological family, but my extended family via Twitter, Facebook, Myspace, and especially through Boobie Wednesday. I have, “met,” so truly amazing people via Boobie Wednesday. Survivors, care takers, loved ones, children, husbands, wifes, and supporters! I proudly show my boobs for BoobieWed, sometimes for an entire week, (I forgot to take down my pic for last week, so for once I’m ahead for a change of pace). hehehe

We have taken so much guff here lately about what BoobieWed stands for, what our purpose is, and why we do what we do. But guess what? I would like to give thanks for all of you who have ignorantly opened your mouth and let such vile spew from it. Do you want to know why? Because you made this past BoobieWed, one of the most SUCCESSFUL BoobieWed’s that I can personally remember!!!!! Some of our followers and supporters that had never posted a boobie pic before posted one!! People who had never retweeted any of our tweets, did so. People that had never supported our cause, spoke up and said “WAY TO GO!!!” So, not only did you fail in making people think we were just, “glorified porn,” or a cry for attention, you single handedly help us gain new supporters, followers, and boobie pics!!! And again, for you doing that, I give thanks!

So please, let’s all take time on this BoobieWed, that is also, Thanksgiving Eve, to post at least one thing we are thankful for! And remember, hashtag it, #boobiewed!! I hope you all have a FANTASTIC Thanksgiving, and please travel safely to and from your loved ones house. But most of all, PLEASE, no groping Great Grandma, to check her breasts, or grabbing any breast while shopping on Black Friday as we do not advocate violence of any kind here at BoobieWed, nor do we want you to get whooped over it… =o)

And remember, don’t let the turkey breast be the only breast you put your hands on tomorrow!!! Love y’all and enjoy your holiday!!

“Strapping on my High Heels.” Terri’s voice in this storm.

posted by:

Alrighty ladies and gentleman, I’m strapping on my high heels and climbing up on my soapbox for a few minutes. It has recently been said that #boobiewed is nothing more then #glorifiedporn and/or a way for people to get attention by “flaunting their assets.” That my friends, is by far, NOT WHAT #BOOBIEWED IS ABOUT. 
 
#boobiewed is about love, support, comforting, earlydetection and KICKING CANCER’S ASS!!! It’a also about being there for someone who needs a shoulder and word of encouragement at 3A.M. Sadly someone people see it for something it is not. It is not just about showing our boobs. It’s not about seeking attention. It’s not about “showing off our assets.” It’s about being there for someone who may have no one. It’s about being there to support someone who has no clue where to turn. It’s about information on breast cancer and how to recognize the signs that might be. It’s about trying to help boost a woman’s self confidence about herself because she had to lost her breast(s). It’s about loving yourself enough, to check yourself regularly. But most of all, it’s about EARLY DETECTION!!! 

 
Now, here is where my skin starts to crawl and I have to supress the urge to climb through my computer screen and knock the living hell out of someone. ***WARNING: this might get a little harsh in language.*** You’ve been warned. 

 
For someone to look at something so good, and something with such a pure and positive message and potential of helping save a life, and say it’s anything other then amazing and wonderful, it’s sicking. I have two, that’s right, count them, 1, 2, aunts that are breast cancer survivors. One lost her one of her breast, over 10 years ago, and still, to this day, struggles with her appearance and self confidence. My other aunt, was blessed beyond measure and her breast cancer was detected early enough that she didn’t have to have her breast taken. And not only that, I have a friend, HISname is Joe. Just a few weeks back we (#boobiewed) were praying that his biopsy came back negative for breast cancer! And now, THANKS TO #boobiewed and what they represent, he checks himself weekly, as he was blessed with his tumor being benign.    

 
Now, I will give you ill commenters this much. You are allowed, by all means, to have your own opinion of what we do. As the #boobiewed lovers and supporters, have all the same right to post their pics and post their answers, and in their own words, to the negative things you say about #boobiewed and/or @shimmer418. But here’s the thing, no one degrades YOU for not following, supporting, or posting a pic on Wednesday’s. So why do you feel it’s okay for you to blast us FOR doing the above stated? Here’s what I have to say to that……ALL IS FAIR IN LOVE, HATE, AND #BOOBIEWED!!!!!!!! One fair turn, deserves another. And 2 wrongs may not make a right….but I’m gonna show you just how big of a bitch I can be and fight for #boobiewed even harder. Keep on saying what you want to say, but realize this, I saw more support for #boobiewed in the three days of unessicary rudeness, then I have in most of the Wednesday’s that we have been posting our pretty, “assets.” And today, I saw more boobie avi’s then I have on any given Wednesday. Even from people who support us, but do not normally or even chose not to post a boobie picture. And you want to know why? Because you happened to open your mouth and let your ignorance be known. 

 
Now, I’m stepping off my soapbox, and slipping off these heels. They’re killing my feet, dammit. And I got boobs to grope!!! Have you felt your’s yet?
