October is International Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It is when everyone gets on board to increase awareness and to raise funds for research, preventative care and a cure.
You probably have signed up to run, walk or swim in an event, set up a giveback campaign at your business or donated funds at your local salon or spa. We need a cure. With 1 out of 8, women are diagnosed with breast cancer.
There are many organizations that you can reach out to and help with their efforts to find a cure. Here is a list of organizations that support NBCAM in the USA. If you are looking to host a Fundraiser in your business, you can get some ideas from the National Brest Cancer Organization.
Everything is Pink and Pink is beautiful! There are pink scarves, T-shirts, bags that you can buy as a donation to Breast Cancer Organizations. We have seen some spas and salons actually going pink! Employees wearing pink, pink flowers at the reception and don’t forget to put a donation box on your front desk. Alternatively, do a give back, match your customer’s donations, or give a percentage of your income to your local Breast Cancer Organization. Your customers will know and appreciate that you care.
Give A Day
Many breast cancer patients suffer from dry and irritated skin during and after radiation treatments. A way to give back is to offer treatments to women in need. Call your local organization and ask if they can help give you names.
For some people after radiation treatments Calendula has soothed and helped heal radiation dermatitis. Calendula oil has antiseptic, anti fungal and anti-inflammatory properties. The WISHPro Calming Milk Treatment Capsule together with BlueV technology (Blue LED) might be the perfect facial, neck and shoulder treatment these special women need and would appreciate. Of course, they should always ask their doctor first.
