Vincy poet writes poem every woman should read

Cancer is a disease

That shakes your entire being

It takes you to rock bottom

Without you even seeing


It’s important to know your body

You need to know what is normal for you

There are many different symptoms

And different signs too


Lumps in the breast, yes, get it checked

Unexplained weight loss, pain or swollen nodes in the neck

If you’re over forty, you’re at a higher risk

Visit your doctor early, incase it’s just a cyst


Make self-examination, a part of your monthly routine

A mammogram would help too; get yourself screened

Don’t wait until it’s too late, when there’s nothing you can do

Learn more about breast cancer; to save you and you and you.
