October is the favorite month of the year for many people. The leaves begin to change color, the air becomes crisp, and warm drinks, pies, and soups fill kitchens across the U.S. However, for many people October comes with a very different meaning. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. In the U.S., 1 in 8 women will be de diagnosed with breast cancer during their lifetime, and October can bring back unfortunate memories for many. Therefore, this October let’s learn how we can support those around us.
- Wear Pink – Pink ribbons, pink shirts or even pink hair can help show your support for those both currently battling breast cancer and those who have beat it. You never know who could see your that small ribbon and feel supported.
- Donate – There are many different organizations that are dedicated to improving the statistics for breast cancer. Even donating $5 this October can truly help the advancement of treatments and supportive services for patients.
- Exercise for a Cause – Local charities and organizations develop runs and walks to support breast cancer. Chances are your town or city has one already scheduled for October. This is a great way to get the whole family involved. Take a minute to check your city’s local event calendar to see if you can participate.
- Learn and Share – One of the most important ways we can show our support is by learning the statistics related to breast cancer and how it affects those around us. The next step is to share these facts with other friends and family. If we spread the facts, we spread awareness.
Are you ready to show your support? Advanced Career Institute is showing our support too. During the month of October, the Bither Family will donate $10 for every student who enrolls at Advanced Career Institute. Additionally, if you become a graduate of ACI this month you will receive this free breast cancer awareness hat to show your support on the road. Give us a call today if you are interested in joining our list of graduates and supporting breast cancer at the same time!
