October is also Breast Cancer Awareness month where everywhere you turn … you see PINK! Well, I’m definitely not going to let that opportunity pass me by to be covered in head to toe in PINK! Join me on October 15 for “Wear Pink Day to Save the Ta-Ta’s” in an effort to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer patients, research, and medical procedures. Here’s what you can do:
- Wear pink through the month of October, but especially on Oct 15!
- Post to social media and use these hashtags to break the internet: #bca #breastcancerawareness #gopink #tcmpinkday #savethetatas #thinkpink
- Recruit some of your family & friends to also wear pink and post
- Donate to your local cancer services to keep the funds helping your neighbors
- Tag me on social media (Listed below in my signature)
Here are some facts from the National Breast Cancer site:
- Breast cancer is the most common cancer in American women, except for skin cancers. It is estimated that in 2021, approximately 30% of all new women cancer diagnoses will be breast cancer.
- 1 in 8 women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime
- Death rates from breast cancer have been declining since about 1990, in part due to better screening and early detection, increased awareness, and continually improving treatment
Be on the look out in your community for fun runs, Wear Pink Weeks, how you can donate, and more! Think Pink and let’s show the world how we fight like a girl and stand up to breast cancer! Don’t forget to tag me and I’ll share it on my social media as well!
Thanks for reading!
