Breast Cancer Awareness Sales Benefit Other Cancers

Jeannette Vagnozzi Health Guide October 02, 2007
  • For a long time after my diagnosis I was not part of the pink ribbon club. Breast cancer awareness month felt more like a big pink marketing machine that served as a constant reminder of the cancer I longed to forget. But then I started to read editorials and blogs and overhear conversations c...

    Since October is Breast Cancer awareness month, I am looking to raise awareness and money for this great cause. I have found numerous etsy shops that are willing to donate prizes as giveaways during the month to get more people to come to my blog and donate.


    I will be putting links in my sidebar that will allow visitors to donate to Susan G Komen and hopefully to Keep a Breast.


    I am looking to have some guest bloggers leave posts about their own interaction with this disease. Whether it's about surviving, losing a loved one, hair loss, testing, being related to someone with bc, informational, poems, etc. Anything breast cancer related.


    If you can be of help or know someone that can, please pass this email on to them.


    My mom is a breast cancer survivor which is why I have gotten involved with this charity.

    Please let me know if you can be a guest blogger on my blog in October asap so that I can get a schedule going.

    Thank you so much!

    Dear Jeannette,

     

    I saw an article in the March/April 2008 issue of Mamm where I learned about your blog. Although I am not a survivor of breast cancer, I work daily with the issue as part of my job.  My job involves breast cancer education and a resource for free mammograms.  Because a large part of what I do has to do with education, it...

    Dear Jeannette,

     

    I saw an article in the March/April 2008 issue of Mamm where I learned about your blog. Although I am not a survivor of breast cancer, I work daily with the issue as part of my job.  My job involves breast cancer education and a resource for free mammograms.  Because a large part of what I do has to do with education, it has been helpful to have the signature color of pink to bring about awareness.  In regards to the amount of money being spent on breast cancer, I have to say that is because a large amount of the money being spent has been raised by women who participate in walks for both Komen and Avon.  Also, many women who are advocating for this issue started with a grassroot movement to let the "powers that be" know that this was an issue of much concern and we have backed up this movement with action such as fundraising for both breast cancer research and education. 

     

    I plan to keep up with your blog and want to offer words of encouragement to you for both your survivorship and the impact you are having on the issue of breast cancer.  I admire your courage and your willingness to share with others.

     

    Blesssings,

    Jeannette  (I felt a special kinship to you because we share the same name and are advocates for the struggle of breast cancer.)

    Your article makes alot of sence and I would like to say "Thank You".  I just finished my cancer treatments 8-6-07 and have found that I now have osteoporosis.  I felt that the pink ribbon was just a way to advertise the "bad" that I have hadin my life, but I see that it is really a display of the accomplishment you & I and many others have made. It is wonderful that it makes it possible for future achievements for other types of cancer.
