It’s October, and that means it’s National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. So we’re going pink again to hopefully provide a reminder to anyone reading that you need to:
2) Think about how horrific this disease is and if you can, support breast cancer research and patients:
- The Susan G. Komen Race For the Cure is happening in LOTS of places. (The Phoenix event is Sunday, October 11).
- The Breast Cancer Society is a national organization based in Mesa, AZ that has a primary focus of providing direct help and financial aid to those suffering with breast cancer.
- Do you Twitter? Check out TweetsForBoobs.org! Send a tweet with the hashtag #tweetsforboobs and you’re pledging to donate $1 to the Susan G. Komen foundation. Follow them @tweetsforboobs and they’ll keep track of your pledges and DM you your total. What a great way to use Twitter and social media to gather pledges and spread the word! Kudos to the Phoenix area peeps that put this all together.
No money? Understood. You can also donate your time, there are many organizations that need volunteers. Write a blog post. Tell a friend. Do something, anything to help stop this insidious disease.
