Support the Woman: Breast Cancer Awareness

I am sure that the majority of us who financially support breast cancer organizations do so because we want nothing more than to support the research efforts; after all we want to know what causes it so we know how to prevent it.  Although I have very strong opinions on where the money goes, I will refrain from sharing and simply say this; know where your contributions are going. In addition, don’t simply support the “cause,” support the woman.

Here are some suggestions:

1.       Participate in screening activities in your community by offering rides to mammogram appointments.

2.       Offer to make a meal  for a breast cancer patient

3.       Offer respite to a caregiver of a breast cancer patient; caregivers need support too.

4.       Make your donation directly to a breast cancer patient so they can buy what they need.
