5 Simple Ways to Get Involved with Breast Cancer Awareness Month

5 Simple Ways to Get Involved with Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Although enormous strides have been made with treatment and curing of Breast Cancer, one of the most important factors remains early detection.


That’s why it is so important to get those conversations going around signs and symptoms of Breast Cancer. It’s also important to take a stand and get involved in this important movement. Nearly everyone is touched by Breast Cancer in one way or another, either personally or through a family member, friend or co-worker.

Here are some simple ways that you can show your support and make a difference during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

1 – Get Active

Across the country, there are walks and runs galore, intended to gather like-minded people to visibly show support in the fight against this wear-pink-to-support-breast cancer awareness_720disease. Depending on where you live, there are weekend-long monster races or shorter ones.

Whatever you prefer, this is an excellent chance to participate in an event that fundraises and lets you be a part of the solution through your actions.

2 – Share Information

One of the greatest barriers towards early detection is a lack of information. Take it upon yourself to get your workplace, church or community group on board by gathering and sharing educational resources. The National Breast Cancer Foundation has a program called ‘Convoy of Hope’ that travels to community groups to get the word out.

3 – Develop a Plan

It’s not enough just to get the wpink-ribbonord about early detection out to others; you’ve got to do the same thing for yourself.

Develop a plan around regular self-examination and mammograms, both of which are key tools in early detection.

Encourage the women in your life to do the same.
Commit to healthy habits, like exercise and eating right as a means of reducing your risk.

4 – Wear Pink

It’s time to show your colors. Wear pink proudly throughout the month of October and draw attention to the cause. If pink is not your color, donning a simple pink ribbon is truly an accessory with meaning.

5 – Host an Event

Are you a baker? A musician? Host an event from which all proceeds will go to support Breast Cancer. Not only can you raise money, but you are also helping keep the conversation going around awareness and early detection.
