Support Your Local Community and Those Organizing For Change

  • Contact local organizers of breast cancer activities and events to offer evidence-based information, insight, and the urge to move beyond awareness.
  • Follow your money.
    • Cut out the “middle man” and give directly to organizations.
    • Earmark contributions when giving to organizations with large budgets (i.e., if research is most important to you, then designate your contributions accordingly.)
    • Support the community-based organizations in your state that fill gaps in services, support, and advocacy. Search Guidestar to find them.
  • Identify organizations that move beyond awareness and support them with monetary and in-kind contributions.
  • Collaborate with hospitals, schools, and community groups to support people with chronic illness.
  • Start a Support Program: Here’s how, from Metavivor.
