Waikato girl guides in New Zealand are collecting bras from around the region in hopes of creating the world’s longest bra chain. They plan on beating the 166,000 bra’s record set by an Australian organization several years ago, hoping to achieve an amazing record or 200,000 bras in the chain which will then we sent overseas at the end of the year to developing countries where women cannot afford them. The bra chain will also help to raise the awareness of breast cancer, encouraging women to get checked more regularly for breast cancer, so that the cancer can be caught at a very early stage. We at Di Murini with the girl guides all the best and hope that they do reach they’re record! We will be sure to follow this up in November which is their deadline. This will hopefully be a record breaking and a hope uplifting winter for us all.

Researchers have foundthat fish oil can protect women from breast cancer, reducing their risk of developing tumours by up to a third.Fish oils supplementshave always been credited for having health benefits but have only now been linked to reducing the amount of woman being diagnosed with breast cancer. A study underwent with 35,000 women, finding that the women who regularly took the fish oil supplements were 32% less likely to develop breast cancer. Why may this be? Well, according to researchers is could be that the fish oils have a higher amount of omega-3 fatty acids in then most people are getting from the typical diet. None of this can of course be proven from one study but scientists at Harvard are said to be continuing their research into whether fish oil is preventative of diseases. It can be suggested though that at least one portion of oily fish is eaten a week as researchers have found that it has a direct effect on the lifespan of cells.
Kylie Minogue is organising a charity concert for breast cancer cure to mark the 5th anniversary since beating the disease. The concert, which will hopefully be taking place in February of 2011 with raise money for breast cancer charities as well as awareness of breast cancer. The pop princess’s friends are also reportedly going to take part in the concert- including Elton John, the Scissor Sisters, and Robbie Williams. Kylie is also going to say a special thank you to the Paris-born doctor who dealt with her treatment, helping her return to health.
Kylie Minogue was diagnosed in 2004 and after going public; the amount of women going for breast cancer screenings went up by a third. Kylie will not take credit for this however, saying, “I know a lot of women went for screenings after my announcement. And a lot of people came up to me and said I saved them. Of course I didn’t but it made them go and get checked,”
We at Di Murini have only one thing to say, or quote rather- as Basement Jaxx once chanted after taking Kylie’s place at Glastonbury festival back in 2005 after her diagnosis- “2,4,6,8, who do we appreciate? Kylie!”. We look forward to the concert.
We at Di Murini are happy to hear that Jennifer Saunders has been given the all clear. Saunders was diagnosed with breast cancer last October when she found a lump in her breast. She decided to keep her year long battle a secret from the public. She underwent chemotherapy but managed to carry on attending public events by disguising the loss of hair. The mum of three was given the all clear recently has been seen out and about looking happy and healthy. We at Di Murini are pleased that she caught her breast cancer very early and we wish her all the best for the future.
Di Murini are going into partnership with De Montfort University to offer a new course in September 2010, where specialist Mastectomy bra fitting training will be taught along with the various well-renowned Contour fashion courses the university currently offers.
Di Murini will be providing specialist breast cancer related content to the course, so that other retailers can expand their knowledge of wider issues relating to breast care. We at Di Murini strongly believe that it is important that those in the lingerie industry have the expertise so support women with breast cancer, helping them to regain their confidence and femininity.
