Oct. 21, 2011 - PRLog -- In honor of breast cancer awareness month, TCCD International is kicking off a breast self examination campaign titled Your Life in Your Hands, because early detection is the best protection.  

TCCD International is encouraging customers, friends and family to perform regular breast self examinations. To complete the pledge participants download and sign pledge card from the website. Then upload a picture of the pledge card to the Naturally Fresh Deodorant Crystal Facebook page. To continue to live a healthy lifestyle, participants can enjoy a $1.00 off coupon for a Roll-On Deodorant at Walmart retail stores.

Breast cancer has touched many lives, including those at TCCD International. The family behind TCCD (Ted, Cathy, Chris and Danielle) lost Cathy’s mother, Rose, to breast cancer back in the 70’s.

“When my mother had breast cancer it was a completely different time,” said Cathy Alflen, cofounder of TCCD International. “The disease was just not understood as well and women were not looking for it, this led to late detection and for many it was too late.”

Alflen adds, “We’ve come so far since the 70’s; survivor rates are higher and treatments are more aggressive. But we won’t stop educating people on the importance of self examinations until there is a cure.”

The Alflens have since been committed to supporting health-care providers, advocates and organizations dedicated to treating this devastating disease. In fact, TCCD International was the first deodorant company to display the pink ribbon.

“When my mother was diagnosed it was a different era where women worried more about their husbands and children than themselves,” Alflen said. “Now women know the importance of taking care of their bodies and living a healthy lifestyle, which is what our products promote.”

Doctors across the United States have been recommending Naturally Fresh Deodorant Crystal products to their patients for years. The formula is extremely gentle yet amazingly effective. Plus, it contains no harmful aluminum or parabens, and kills odor-causing bacteria while permitting the pores to excrete toxins naturally. This is vital to maintain healthy, axillary lymph nodes located in the underarm area.

One of those doctors is Gynecologic surgeon and breast cancer survivor, Dr. Melanie Bone, who recommends using Naturally Fresh Deodorant Crystal every day, but especially on the day of a mammogram. Aluminum containing antiperspirants can leave tiny particles on the skin that might possibly interfere with a mammogram reading. Avoiding these aluminum containing products will help to ensure the most accurate results.

“Naturally Fresh Deodorant Crystal should be applauded for raising awareness for early detection,” said Dr. Bone. “When it comes to recognizing breast cancer, early intervention leads to a higher cure rate.”

Naturally Fresh Deodorant Crystal products are available at Walmart and CancerShopUSA as well as other fine retailers. To find a store near you, visit our store locator.
