October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, (BCA), and while this year is different, breast cancer does not stop during a pandemic. There are no breaks with this devastating disease, yet many surgeries and treatments were paused with life-changing consequences.
The impact from this alone is heart-wrenching to breast cancer patients. In the history of after BREAST CANCER, a Canada-wide charity dedicated to supporting and celebrating those affected by breast cancer, due to a surge in need and lack of funding, the plea for support is at its peak without the possibility of in-person fundraising initiatives and events.
On THURSDAY, OCTOBER 15, join after BREAST CANCER in a global movement to help Shine a Light on Breast Cancer. During these difficult times, it is more important than ever to bring awareness and to support breast cancer patients and graduates, who are at odds with being amongst the most vulnerable. “We cannot do this alone; it will take a community,” said Alicia Vianga, Founder & Executive Director of after BREAST CANCER. “Help us help others in a time of increased demand and need.”
Everyone is invited to “Shine a Light on Breast Cancer”, here’s how: 1. Go PINK on social media with an image or video and use the hashtag #shinealightonbreastcancer 2. Share, Tag and Challenge others to #shinealightonbreastcancer Breast cancer is the most diagnosed cancer among women and remains the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths among Canadian women.
