This Breast Cancer Awareness Month I’ve recorded a version of The Divinyls global hit “I Touch Myself” to remind women to self-check regularly. _ Yes, this put me out of my comfort zone, but I wanted to do it because it’s an issue that affects all women of all colors, all around the world. Early detection is key - it saves so many lives. I just hope this helps to remind women of that. _ The music video is part of the I Touch Myself Project which was created in honor of celebrated diva, Chrissy Amphlett, who passed away from breast cancer, and who gave us her hit song to remind women to put their health first. The project is proudly supported by @BerleiAus for Breast Cancer Network Australia. _ Visit the link in my bio to find out more. #ITouchMyselfProject #BerleiAus #BCNA #DoItForYourself
The video is part of the I Touch Myself Project, which was launched in 2014, in partnership with bra manufacturer Berlei and inspired by Australian singer Chrissy Amphlett, who died in 2013 after battling breast cancer and multiple sclerosis.
Amphlett was the frontwoman for the Australian rock band Divinyls, whose biggest hit was 1991's "I Touch Myself." She was 53.
