Breast Cancer Reality Check

Are you dreading Breast Cancer Awareness Month like we are?

Join us for the Second Annual #BreastCancerRealityCheck Thunderclap campaign. In 2016 our message had a social media reach of over 200,000!

How Thunderclap Works

The #BreastCancerRealityCheck tweet at the top of this page will be sent out by the automated Thunderclap system at 10amPDT/1:00pmEDT/6:00pmBST on Saturday, October 7th from everyone who signs up.

The more people you sign up, the more 'social media reach' it gains as it will go out to all your followers.

Then There’s the Twitterstorm

After the automated Thunderclap tweet goes out on Saturday, October 7th it’s your turn to get tweeting!

For an hour, starting at 10amPDT/1:00pmEDT/6:00pmBST, please use #BreastCancerRealityCheck to FILL our timelines with info and personal stories that:

  • Move beyond superficial "raising awareness" to focus on more education and research that will SAVE LIVES
  • Dispel the myths about prevention and early detection
  • Reveal the candid realities of people (women and men) living with ALL stages of breast cancer
  • Provide less-known, harsh facts about secondary/metastatic breast cancer

One of Breast Cancer Awareness Month's favorite ‘pink fairy tale’ messages is that early detection saves lives. But what most people still don't know is 20-30% of all early stage breast cancer will become metastatic breast cancer. THAT is the killer.

You can do your part to help stop that killer. Sign up for the Thunderclap tweet campaign. Participate in the one-hour twitterstorm. And keep using the #BreastCancerRealityCheck hashtag for the rest of October and beyond!

  • Our Reach of Over 200,00 Thanks to You!

    October 6, 2017
    Hi everyone.

    Thanks for supporting the Second Annual #BreastCancerRealityCheck Thunderclap 'flash mob' campaign. The automated tweet you signed up for will be blasted out to your social media followers by the Thunderclap system at 10am PDT/1pm EDT/6pm BST.

    Because of you, our message protesting the relentless retelling of breast cancer's 'pink fairy tales' will have a social media reach of over 200,000!

    Please tell your REAL stories of this devastating disease using the #BreastCancerRealityCheck hashtag for the hour after the automated tweet goes out--and throughout October and beyond.

    Again, we really appreciate your participation and are curious to see what breast cancer truths you share!

    Hi everyone!

    Thanks for supporting our US/UK Thunderclap social media "flash mob" scheduled for this Saturday, October 7th (10am PDT/1pm EDT/6pm BST).

    As I'm writing this, we've got 76 fantastic people signed up--which would give our message a social media reach of 143,257! BUT... for the campaign to work, we need to get at least 100 people to sign up. And then, of course, our reach will be even bigger.

    So if you can, please invite the people in your networks to join us by sending them this link:


    With our appreciation,
    Annie, Wendi, Jo & Julia

We are four friends from the US and UK. Three of us have had primary breast cancer. One of us, with secondary breast cancer, is literally dying for a cure.
