Avon Uses Armpit To Stop Breast Cancer

Another breast cancer awareness campaign, this time from Avon in Slovakia. A woman reclines with one arm raised, one hand covering the breast closest to the camera. The woman clearlhy has paid attention to her appearance. Her hair is bleached. Her eyebrows are shaped. But her hairy armpit is exposed. “Not everything that grows is visible. Regular self examining of your breasts can save your life.”
