#MyBodyTude Selfie Contest

Breast cancer not only changes your body – it can change your bodytude too! (bodytude = the attitude you have toward your body and how you express your attitude to life).

To raise awareness of the impact of diagnosis and treatment on body image and acceptance, Living Beyond Breast Cancer is holding a special Instagram campaign and contest: #mybodytude. Each day from July 6-14, we will share a photo diary from a young woman sharing her personal story about breast cancer and its impact on her bodytude. We're also running a selfie contest from July 6-14 where you will be entered to win a $100 Visa gift card by sharing your bodytude on Instagram using #mybodytude.  Official rules below.
