10 Ways You Can Help Fight Breast Cancer

support the fight for breast cancer

Do you know someone who has battled breast cancer? Maybe a family member, a friend, a coworker, or a member of your church? Join us in showing support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month! Here are 10 simple things to do this month that can make a difference in the fight against breast cancer:

EAT & DRINK PINK (Some restaurants allow patrons to add a donation to their bill or order a dish in which a portion of the proceeds go towards the foundation)

LEAD BY EXAMPLE (There are many clinics offering free mammograms this month if you cannot afford one. Schedule yours today!)

PARTICIPATE IN A FUNDRAISER (The world’s largest breast cancer organization, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, has a series of 5Ks around the country. Net proceeds fund global breast cancer research and local community programs)

GET INFORMED (Talk to your doctor and learn about your personal risk. The American Cancer Society even has a quiz you can take: https://www.cancer.org/…/breast-can…/breast-cancer-quiz.html)

SPREAD THE WORD (Post uplifting & educational messages on social media. You can even SHARE this one!)

VOLUNTEER (Money is essential to funding research for finding a cure for breast cancer, but you can also make a big difference by giving of your time! Contact your local American Cancer Society to find out where you are needed!)

CREATE YOUR OWN FUNDRAISER (Whether it be a lemonade stand or a paid dress down day at work, try finding small ways to make a big difference!)

WEAR YOUR RIBBON – Learn how to make the symbolic pink ribbon here: https://www.cancer.org/…/…/make-a-pink-ribbon-lapel-pin.html

ENCOURAGE YOUR LOVED ONES (Encourage friends and family members to also get screened! By asking them to do this they will know you care about their health and you are a true and proud supporter of helping find a cure for breast cancer)

SHOP (All October, you can help support breast cancer awareness by rounding up your JCPenney purchases to the nearest dollar. Contributions will be donated to JCPenney Cares to directly fund programs supporting breast cancer awareness)

Even though we are nearing the end of October, don’t let this stop you from showing some sort of support. Encourage others around you to join together and make a difference this month! If you still have questions, you can always leave us a comment or email us at customerservice@aedbrands.com
