Spread awareness this October

Posted in Self Breast Exam.

 

It all started with a colored ribbon. Pink for breast cancer, blue for ovarian cancer,blue for colon cancer and then the colored bracelets came into fruition. Nowthere are a number of different ways in which you can show your support and be inspired to start living a healthier and longer life, CANCER FREE!
Being that it is Cancer Awareness Month and we are pretty much half way through October we thought it would be a good idea to showcase some ways in which you could help out and become more cancer aware.
There are a number of different ways in which you can get a group of people together and throw an event in help bring awareness or even join an event that has already been organized. Here are just a few fun and exciting event ideas:
Head shaving
Dinner auction
Car wash
Donate and wear an iron-on bra
Bake sale
BBQ
Office Idol…or office Karaoke. Donors sponsor contestants
Hold a charity concert at a local bar
Dye your hair pink or wear pink wigs
Have an office costume contest
Ask the men in your office to wax their legs for pledges

•••••••••••
Throwing an event of even just being a part of one helps provide a sense of just doing something. It helps to make a real connection to others that have the same passion and determination to make some kind of a difference in the fight against cancer.
We are all in this together, which is why it is so important to talk, walk and show your support in any way possible.
For more information on how you can become more aware this month or for emotional support (while you wait till the DREAM LOVE CURE CENTRE opens up) be sure to check out these great sites:

    Susan G. Komen is a corporation. Plain & simple. Look at this difference between funding for breast cancer & all other cancers…especially…pancreatic cancer.

    FACT : Nine out of ten dollars goes towards breast cancer research & no other form of cancer research. That is appalling.

    My simple point is: There is more than one pastel color in the crayon box. Like Purple.

    Skate on…
