Breast cancer is an extremely malevolent disease that affects one in eight women nationwide. This is a large group of people whose entire lives have been affected by this disease. Thanks to global fundraising efforts, there are currently over 2.8 million breast cancer survivors alive in the United States today. Here’s how you can help:
There are a number of organizations that raise money for breast cancer research. The Susan G. Komen Foundation is the leading organization for breast cancer research. Through the foundation, you can donate, create a memorial, tribute, legacy, and more!
No act is too small. Wearing pink raises awareness. Wearing pink shows support. And most of all, wearing pink creates a sense of unity. Those who have experienced the life changing effect breast cancer can have will know they have a support system. By wearing pink, we all stand together.
Participate in a Cause
If that’s not your thing, stop by the Southern Saratoga YMCA on Wednesday, October 17th for a Breast Cancer Walk.
Get a Pink Streak
Think pink with a streak. Mix up your fall style by adding a hot pink hair extension in exchange for a $10 donation to breast cancer research. You’ll look great while, at the same time, helping a great cause!
