Leonisa Supports the Fight against Breast Cancer
Leonisa has always shown interest in the welfare of women, for this it offers solutions to highlight femininity and project confidence. Further, Leonisa has decided to lead a campaign that seeks to generate awareness about Breast Cancer. We are aware of this reality and how it affects women. At Leonisa, we have taken the lifelong initiative to keep women informed to support the fight.
This initiative started in 2005 with the objective to send an educational message to women to learn how to perform monthly self-breast exams, as a way to dedicate our efforts to create awareness through early detection of breast cancer.
Today, we continue our commitment to carry this message of early detection to all women and their families. We encourage you to extend the message of early detection to everyone you know.
Lift your right arm up and with your left hand gently press on your right breast in little circular motions, starting from the outside and working your way in towards your nipple. You are looking for any changes, lumps and knots. Do the same to your left breast.
Examine your entire breast and armpit. Gently squeeze both nipples to check for new or abnormal secretion.
Press your nipples to examine any possible changes.
Put your arms to your sides, then raise your arms over your head in front of a mirror. Inspect each breast to see if there are any changes in size or shape. Look for dimpling, puckering or any change in the texture of your skin.
When lying down, place a pillow under your right shoulder and your right arm behind your head. Using your left hand, move your fingers around your right breast gently in small circular motions covering the entire breast area and armpit.
Repeat this for your left breast.
