ACTORS GO TOPLESS TO CREATE AWARENESS ABOUT BREAST CANCER MONTH
This year, nearly 300,000 women will hear one of the most frightening things a doctor can say: "You have breast cancer." Among women, breast cancer remains the most common cancer and the second most deadly. It strikes women of all races, ethnicities, income levels and family backgrounds. In fact, about 85 percent of breast cancers occur in women who have no family history of disease.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease. While most people are aware of breast cancer, many forget to take the steps to have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages and encourage others to do the same.
It was therefore noble for these actors who took it upon themselvs to have a campaign towards that cause by going topless.
What do the actors have in common? well, the all star in the upcoming movie titled Fundi-mentals which is slated for release in January 2015.
From the makers of award winning film House of Lungula, Fundi-mentals follows Joseph (Gerald Langiri) and his assistant Moses (Charlie Karumi) who’d like to think of themselves as the Best Fundis in Kinoo despite their unorthodox methods to fix things. The entry of a new Multinational Service Company in town however throws all this into jeopardy. To avoid going out of business, they introduce to their female customers a new type of sex-press service with hilarious results to leave you in stitches with laughter.
See trailer below:
The movie boasts of having Gerald Langiri, Charlie Karumi, Florence Nduta, Lizz Njagah, Kalekye Mumo, Neomi Ng’ang’a, Veronica Waceke, Ruth Maingi, Milkah Ndegwa and Ojiambo Ainea in the cast.
Written and Directed by Alexandros Konstantaras.
Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign from the actors: #ProtectThem and #CheckThem.
Breast cancer is often thought of as a condition that only affects women, but men can also develop it. Breast cancer in men is much less common than breast cancer in women, with only around one new case diagnosed for every 100,000 men each year. Breast cancer occurs mainly in women, but men can get it, too. Many people do not realize that men have breast tissue and that they can develop breast cancer.
It all hit close to home when during the Photoshoot, the ladies discovered that most of them had been affected one way or another, with close family members/ friends having being diagnosed with breast cancer:
