To get a blue boob emoji created for people with breast cancer

This petition had 110 supporters

Every year more than 55,000 people are diagnosed with breast cancer in the UK, of those just over 80% will have surgery. Part of this surgery involves dying a section of skin on the breast blue. This blue dye can take six months to a year to fade.

Those of us who have had breast cancer lovingly refer to this as blue boob or blue tit. It's a small reason to smile at a time when there aren't many.

Around 10,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer under the age of 50 every year in the UK. Us 'younger women' are the social media generation and we want to be able to share support and smiles through the medium of emojis. 

Therefore, please help us to get a 'blue boob emoji' so that we can share love and support with each other.
