Moving from Breast Cancer Awareness to Action

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Many of us could not be more aware.

And what we need is research for better treatments, a cure and, someday soon, prevention. Usually this is followed by a request for gobs of money. But I'm not asking for money. I'm not asking you to purchase anything pink. And I am not asking you to bare your breasts or participate in any other pink-power-themed activities.

If you would like to help move an entire society from awareness to action without spending a dime, please consider taking a few minutes to sign up for the Army of Women and consider participating in a study. Most of the AoW studies are completely non-invasive and strive to gather information on both healthy women and women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. We are looking for patterns, triggers, some way to get ahead of the disease.

Men, while you too are susceptible to breast cancer, the Army of Women is currently only taking females in her ranks at this time. Instead, please continue to support the females in your life and encourage them to join.

Together let's move from breast cancer awareness to breast cancer ACTION!

Thank you in advance.
