My life has been touched by two wonderful women who have both had breast cancer. My Mom and her mother both found out they had breast cancer in their 50s by a routine mammogram. My mother was fortunate enough to banish her breast cancer with the removal and radiation. My grandmother needed a double mastectomy.
I try to support any breast cancer awareness program I can. I buy pink when they are donating the money to breast cancer research or awareness.
Now, you can help too.
- Visit PinkTogether.com to share your personal story and messages of hope and read about others’ personal journeys. To encourage personal connections, General Mills will donate $1 to the Komen organization for each Message of Hope that is sent to someone who has shared their story on PinkTogether.com (up to $25,000) during October. This is in addition to a $2 million donation General Mills is making to the Komen organization.
- This year, for the first time in its five-year history, at PinkTogether.com consumers can choose how $1 million of this donation will be shared between two important Komen programs: the Treatment and Assistance Program, which assists women in securing care they otherwise may not be able to afford, and Prevention Research, which helps unlock the keys to preventing breast cancer. Visit PinkTogether.com from September 19, 2011 through April 14, 2012 to make your choice. Results will be announced on Mother’s Day 2012 – Sunday, May 13.
