Empower Yourself: Ways to Fight Breast Cancer

 
 

This month of October organizations all over the world are donning pink for their products in declaration of support against the fight of breast cancer. However short of spending all of our money attempting to donate money to the research, all of us – yes men, you too! – can take up the right into your own hands. Grab a pen and paper, here are 5 ways to help support our sisters near and far.

Volunteer:

Reach to Recovery, Look Good Feel Better, and Road to Recovery are all great volunteer opportunities for continuing the fight against breast cancer.

Lift your voice:

Get involved with the American Cancer Society Action Network. They’ll help you stay informed so you can know which petitions to sign. You can also send emails to Congress, asking them to increase breast cancer research funding.

 

Organization Spotlight: Susan G. Komen for the Cure

Susan G. Komen Logo

The Susan G. Komen for the Cure organization was launched by Nancy G. Brinker, Susan’s sister, in 1982 and essentially launched the global breast cancer movement. Today Susan G. Komen is making the biggest impact in the fight against breast cancer thanks to events like the Komen Race for the Cure and other initiatives to promote government research, community outreach, and advocacy in over 50 countries.

 

Susan was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 33 and following her death he sister Nancy decided that one person could make all the difference in the fight towards a cure for the disease that took and threatened so many women’s lives.

Since its launch, Komen has played a significant role in every major advance in the fight against breast cancer. This has changed how the world talks and treats breast cancer and survivors.

 

Join the research:

You can sign up to take part in clinical trials or ongoing research projects that will help diagnosed breast cancer patients. There are also prevention studies you can take part in by sharing information about your lifestyle and health status to give data to scientists searching for the cure.

Stay healthy:

Based on current breast cancer incidence rates, the National Cancer Institute experts estimate that about one out of every eight women born today will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some time during her life.

A huge way to join the fight against breast cancer is to take charge of your own health. Even though there’s no sure way to prevent breast cancer, maintaining certain habits can definitely lower risk of development. Stay physically active, maintain a healthy diet, and limit your alcohol intake: you become wealthy when you are healthy. Welcome to the fight for the cure!
