Activities Abound for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Activities Abound for Breast Cancer Awareness Month
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, set aside annually to bring attention to the disorder and the community’s needs. From sharing photographs and educational resources, to hosting virtual fundraisers and wearing pink ribbons, supporters already are observing the month-long event. “Twenty-twenty [2020] has been a powerful reminder that we are all in this together, and our choices and actions have the power to protect the most vulnerable among us in a big way. The same holds true when it comes to breast cancer,” the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) states on its website. “With your support, we can show every woman that her life is important. By working together, we can inspire hope and become a force for good to get her access to the care she needs,” the statement continues. As part of its observance, the organization is offering a free ebook about breast health. You may download “Breast Problems That Aren’t Breast Cancer” to learn about common breast issues that are unfamiliar to many. The NBCF also is encouraging supporters to share “snapshots of hope” — photos that tell the story of breast cancer’s affect on them or a loved one. It will share the photos throughout October on its social media channels as a “celebration of strength.”  The photos are meant to encourage those currently on their breast cancer journey.
