Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Wear Pink for Breast Cancer
Tis the season to wear pink! From boutique designs to hunting gear, pink is everywhere thank to . Breast Cancer Awareness Month was founded in 1985 and is now observed across the United States and many other countries as well. That’s why you’re seeing so many people letting their pink flag fly. You should, too!
Be Super Aware – Get Screened
Yes, awareness is key to supporting those with cancer and all of us working together in finding a cure. However, as great as awareness is, screening is even better. Screening is an essential tool in the fight against breast cancer because when symptoms are caught early on you’ll have a much better chance at a great outcome. Not sure if you qualify for screening assistance? Take our financial screener to find out!
Be a Savvy Awareness Sponsor
Not every pink product supports the cause! Sometimes referred to as “pinkwashing” this practice involves creating products for sale that look like they officially support Breast Cancer Awareness Month, when in fact they do not. Not sure who to donate to? Check out this great article on ways you can help during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
One great way to show your support is to get active this month on social media. With your help screening and prevention concepts can reach all across your network and beyond. Share tweets and posts that are educational and inspirational as many times as you can for the rest of the month. Here are some great tweets to get you started:
