Serena Williams kicked off Breast Cancer Awareness month by performing topless to bring awareness to the importance of breast self-examination. Williams, who has won 23 Grand Slam singles tennis titles, posted a video of herself singing “I Touch Myself.”
“Early detection is key,” she wrote on Instagram.” It saves so many lives. I just hope this helps remind people of that.” Statistics show that one in eight women will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime, and about 40,920 women in the U.S. are expected to die in 2018 from the disease, according to Breastcancer.org.
