What to Do Today to Help Fight Breast Cancer

Every bit of effort helps. Consider these ways to support the cause.

Celebrate Pink Ribbon Birthdays

Tuck a pink ribbon and a mammogram reminder note into birthday cards for friends age 40 and over.

Send a Breast-Health Care Box

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.

Spread the Knowledge

Bring cancer information brochures to your office, school, or place of worship. Often, you can get brochures from cancer organizations.

Rally Your Friends and Family

Organize a group or team to take part in a fund-raiser, such as a walk or run.

Lobby Congress

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.
