According to BreastCancer.org, “Every three minutes a woman in the United States is diagnosed with breast cancer.” Breast cancer is a serious illness that affects a significant population and should not be disregarded.
Research concerning breast cancer prevention and early cancer detection is constantly conducted, but some people are still uninformed about how to protect themselves against this disease. So, how can you educate your employees, clients, and patients about breast cancer? One simple way is by recognizing Breast Cancer Awareness month in October. Throughout the month, give employees, clients and patients promotional products that send a message – tell them to learn about breast cancer and the ways to detect it before it takes another life.
Breast Cancer Awareness Month is filled with different activities to help people learn about the disease. One of the events that take place every year in various cities around the United States is the Breast Cancer Three-Day. This walk allows breast cancer survivors, their family, and friends a chance to walk together to raise breast cancer awareness. The event raises money to help find the cure for breast cancer. This year, why not give out pedometers to employees, clients, and patients to encourage them to train for this event. With each step taken, they can think about the lives that could be saved by participating in this event.
Breast cancer awareness can be promoted in a more traditional manner as well. One great promotional product to consider is a pink car magnet in the shape of a ribbon. These pink ribbon magnets may not seem original, but they are a great way to raise awareness everywhere you go. The magnet will be seen by everyone who drives by.
Whether you discuss breast cancer through the giveaway of a promotional product or by sending out a memo reminding employees about the importance of Breast Cancer Awareness month, you are spreading an important message and educating people about breast cancer.
