Every bit of effort helps. Consider these ways to support the cause.
Tuck a pink ribbon and a mammogram reminder note into birthday cards for friends age 40 and over.
Put together a package for young women you know at college or living away from home that includes a breast self-exam card and a reminder to have a doctor or nurse check her breasts every three years.
Bring cancer information brochures to your office, school, or place of worship. Often, you can get brochures from cancer organizations.
Organize a group or team to take part in a fund-raiser, such as a walk or run.
Voice your support for research funding and other breast cancer initiatives by writing to your member of Congress. You can write your own letter or simply send a prepared e-mail note by going to www.actnowendbreastcancer.org.
