Apologies for the startling opener. But its an important question and seems very appropriate here on this medical authors blog especially as many of our books have tackled the issue of cancer including breast cancer.
A year ago today Chrissy Amphlett, Aussie rock legend, front-woman of the Divynls died from breast cancer. It was her dying wish that her iconic song empowering female sexuality – I Touch Myself – be re-purposed to encourage women everywhere to check themselves for cancer and, even more, to be “in touch” with themselves.
The I Touch Myself Project launches today. You can find out more about it from their website http://www.itouchmyself.org (which is great btw!) but please take a moment to watch this amazing capella version of Chrissy’s song by 10 strong female Aussie music icons and hear the message it promotes – be vigilant, listen to your body, take care of your body.
