How You Can Support the Breast Cancer Cause Beyond October
As amazing as breast cancer awareness month is for generating support for the cause during October, the reality is that breast cancer is a 365 day concern. At Rethink, we are always thinking of new ways to empower young people worldwide to learn about breast health and breast awareness throughout the entire year, advocate to make much needed change and support those going through it. We hope YOU will join us and support the breast cancer movement beyond October!
Women with metastatic breast cancer (MBC) have unique concerns and needs that don’t stop at the end of the month. For this reason, Rethink will be advocating for these women year-round, specifically for better access to treatment (right now there is no cure for MBC). It’s time to change how MBC drugs are approved and listed to be more transparent and without delay. If this is something you’d like to be part of, find out more and sign our petition HERE.
Rethink is constantly looking for volunteers from a variety of backgrounds who are passionate about helping young women with breast cancer. Our amazing volunteers help us in the office, at events, with fundraising, and through advocacy and outreach. To support Rethink’s role in the breast cancer movement in a more hands-on way, register here and stay up-to-date on the latest volunteer opportunities.
There are many different ways to raise money for the breast cancer advocacy and programs. Consider turning an event or party into a fundraiser for Rethink, or make a one-time or monthly donation to the cause. Whatever you choose, you’ll be helping to build a community and empower young women dealing with breast cancer across Canada and the rest of the world… and that’s a cause worthy of supporting year-round!
