The Thingamaboob is a keychain reminding women between the ages of 50 and 69 of the importance of getting a mammogram every two years. We can give it to our mothers, sisters or friends to let them know how crucial it is in our eyes for them to take care of themselves. You can also get it for yourself simply because you love yourself!

What is the Thingamaboob?

It’s a keychain with two pink beads: the big one represents what a woman can detect herself when examining her breasts while the small one represents what a mammogram can detect. A powerful example illustrating the importance of making an appointment with your healthcare professional to get a mammogram every two years!

The Thingamaboob is available in the Jean Coutu stores of Quebec. You can buy it at the prescription counter from November 21, 2019 to January 10, 2020. The proceeds will go to the Canadian Cancer Society. Giving the Thingamaboob as a gift is a small gesture of love which helps saves more lives.
