Breast Cancer Awareness Month ends soon, but the work of making others aware of breast health issues must continue. Co-worker Karen Carr and I have had the life-changing opportunity to work in the National Breast Cancer Foundation tent at Convoy of Hope community outreaches across the country this year. We have both heard countless stories of mothers, daughters, friends, aunts, cousins and other women who have experienced the pain of breast cancer firsthand.
As a woman, I know I have a tendency to put the health of others first and forget how important it is to make my own health a priority. Through our community outreaches, women from all walks of life have received life saving information and resources that make their health a priority. It’s been a joy to see so many women being empowered to take better care of themselves. We believe that what our outreach guests are provided through the National Breast Cancer Foundation will affect many generations to come.
Though Breast Cancer Awareness Month is coming to a close, we will continue our efforts to educate and resource women through our continued partnership with NBCF in 2014!
