Breast Cancer Awareness Month
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month — if you’ve noticed pink ribbons popping up all around Puyallup, WA, now you know why! In this week’s post on Canyon Park Blog, we will be giving you some simple ways that you can spread awareness and join the fight against breast cancer. This month, consider getting involved in one of the following ways:
If you’re looking to help out this year, why not start an individual fundraiser, business fundraiser, or student & sports fundraiser? The funding you raise will contribute to providing free resources and screenings, education about breast cancer, and a supportive hand to those going through cancer treatment.
If you don’t have the time to organize a fundraiser, another way you can help is by donating to The National Breast Cancer Foundation. This generous act goes to providing mammograms, breast health services, education, and support for those affected by breast cancer across the country. You can donate in honor of someone affected by breast cancer or anonymously.
Spread the Word
Social Media has become a powerful way to spread the word in a far-reaching way. Like the NBCF Facebook page and share their posts, follow @NBCF on Twitter and retweet, and follow NBCF on Instagram to spread hope.
Shop in the NBCF Shop for apparel, wristbands, and other items to express your support for the fight against breast cancer. The proceeds benefit programs that are helping women now. You can also contribute by purchasing items from NBCF partners or donating to fundraisers whose proceeds go toward research, educational programs, breast health resources, and other NBCF services.
Learn the Facts for Yourself
You can also make a difference by learning the facts about breast cancer and sharing what you’ve learned with others; find the facts about breast cancer on the National Breast Cancer Foundation’s website. Knowledge can be a powerful and effective way to prevent or to detect early on.
These are only a few of the countless ways to get involved in the fight against breast cancer. Join our community in a combined effort by spreading Breast Cancer Awareness in whatever way you can. Thanks for taking the time to read our post. Don’t forget to wear pink this month!
