How To Get Involved During Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Be a Volunteer
Cancer volunteer opportunities are available nationwide and there are many ways to get involved. The American Cancer Society (ACS) is a great way to raise awareness and eliminate cancer. The ACS has been around since 1913 and has many different programs and events that volunteers can be a part of, such as Relay For Life, Road to Recovery, and Making Strides Against Breast Cancer.
While a cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming, there are many ways you can help a loved one who has been diagnosed with the disease. You can help organize meal deliveries, rides, and other tasks to assist your loved one. You can help bring together the patient’s family, friends, and coworkers by helping support your loved one through an online social network and planner. By offering your support, you can help your loved one through this challenging time.
One simple yet effective way to show your support for those affected by breast cancer is to wear pink. Pink ribbons are an international symbol of breast cancer awareness, and by wearing pink clothes, you can help to raise awareness of this important issue. Whether it is a pink t-shirt, a pink dress, or even just a pink ribbon pinned to your shirt, any way that you can incorporate pink into your wardrobe this October will help to show your support for those who are fighting breast cancer.
Participate in a Run or a Walk
Participating in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure is a great way to support breast cancer research and education. The race is a series of 5K runs and walks around the country that helps to raise funds for the organization. The organization also has the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure, a 60-mile, 3-day event. Participating in either of these events is a great way to support those affected by breast cancer and help fund research to find a cure for this disease.
