According to the experts at NationalBreastCancer.org, 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. This disease has, in some way or another, effected everyone in the United States. No one should face breast cancer alone, and that is the inspiration behind Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The goal of spotlighting this issue in October is to shed light on the disease and raise awareness.
NationalBreastCancer.org has laid out a few ways you can help:
- Host an in-person or virtual fundraiser
- Make a one-time or ongoing donation
- Share educational content on social media: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest
