Canadian punk singer Bif Naked may be known for her music, but she's also looking to lend her efforts to a great cause.
According to CTV Canada
, the 39-year-old performer, who was diagnosed with breast cancer three years ago, recently delivered a pep-talk to survivors of the disease at the BC Cancer Agency's community forum.
"I guess you're never really prepared for a cancer diagnosis," she told the news source. "I was a vegan for a long time, I was health conscious. It was a bit of a surprise to say the least."
And while Naked is now cancer-free and back to performing, she wants to remind all women out there to take several precautions.
In fact, she implores people to "feel your boobs, basically. Just by accident did I ever find the lump in my breast. It was a complete fluke," she told the news outlet.
According to the Canadian Cancer Society, so far there have been more than 23,000 reported cases of breast cancer in the country this year.
