October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and it’s a good time to choose a little way to support funding or spreading awareness. Remember that breast cancer still takes the lives of over 40,000 women annually.
Be sure to go to The Breast Cancer Site every day in October and click the button for mammograms. Every click during October is doubled, so don’t miss a day. Sponsors help to pay for mammograms for women in need.
Susan G. Komen sponsors events and products to provide funding for research and advocacy.
The Army of Women sponsors research that studies the surroundings of breast cancer: for example, the relatives of women with breast cancer who do not have breast cancer and the women who have beat the odds and survived beyond the expectations. Anyone can join. AoW announces new studies needing new subjects, who are often women who do not have cancer.
You may have heard about Keep-A-Breast‘s “I like boobies” bracelets that, despite causing some controversy at schools, are intended to increase awareness of breast cancer among young people.
