Happy Breast Cancer Awareness Month! First of all you have to love all the pink items that are all over the place for the month. I love all the pink and that you can shop and support others. As a women who works with young women and runs event throughout the month to raise money for breast cancer research, I felt the need to share information about the Army of Women.
“ The Army of Women campaign is an online initiative, where women can sign up at www.armyofwomen.org. The members are then contacted via E-blast to participate in groundbreaking, breast cancer prevention research studies. They can either sign-up for the studies online, or if they do not qualify, they are encouraged to forward the information to a friend or family member. Every woman over 18 is welcome to participate, whether a breast cancer survivor or someone never affected. In many breast cancer research studies, recruiting women is the biggest obstacle, and our innovative program is working to virtually eliminate this hurdle.
We have over 335,000 women already signed up, and are still eager to reach our goal of ONE MILLION women.”
I got involved with this a few years ago when my Mother-in-law sent me an email about it. Although I have not been able to be part of any studies yet, I still think it is so important to help in any ways we can.
Please sign up as you never know who you can help!
Happy Breast Cancer Awareness Month!
