Celebrating Breast Cancer Awareness Month

It’s not just the leaves that are changing color this October. October also turns a brilliant pink as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month takes over. Our Susan G. Komen 3-Day community is definitely well outfitted to wear their pink pride!

In addition to continuing to share stories from the 3-Day, we will celebrate National Breast Cancer Awareness Month by featuring important news from the Susan G. Komen® website. Here are two great websites to check out:

I Am Susan G. Komen: Five contributors share how they were affected by breast cancer and the role that Komen funding has played in their journey. The 3-Day’s own Richard Perrine is one of those featured. Don’t miss the video clip at the end of his story.

Susan G. Komen® Blog:  Breast cancer survivors, scientists and advocates share their stories on the Komen blog. Check it out for updates on Komen-funded research and their mission.

  1. Hello! I just wanted to let you know about a new infographic I helped put together in appreciation of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month 2013. It details some of the history behind breast cancer awareness, contributing organizations (which of course includes the Susan G. Komen Foundation), as well as some prominent figures (Nancy Brinker can be found here as well) which have overcome this illness. I know that this must be a very busy time for you, but hopefully you’ll get a chance to check it out. You can find the infographic here: http://www.knowcancer.com/blog/breast-cancer-awareness-2013-infographic/
