Breast Cancer Awareness Month is coming to a close
October is coming to a close. Aside from the imminent opportunity for half-priced Halloween candy, this also marks the end of something much more significant: Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
There are multiple races and organizations we would typically partner with throughout this month, photograph or donate services to, and while we’re missing those experiences in 2020, there is still opportunity to honor these causes and their survivors.
We’ve been thinking about cancer stories like that of Heidi Fuller, and how she turned her cancer experience into a beacon of hope (in the form of a beautiful wig shop!) for women experiencing the same.
It’s for the same reason we typically love partnering with CHI Saint Joseph Health Foundations and their Yes, Mamm! Program, through the 5K race that raises awareness and funds to support their important work. We are amazed by their ability to provide holistic care and support for women in need. Since its beginnings in 2012, Yes, Mamm! has raised close to $100,000 to provide thousands of mammograms and diagnostic services to women and men in Kentucky, along with program and transportation assistance.
Another organization we love that supports this cause of beating cancer is Ironcology, which typically hosts the Survive the Night triathlon and marathon relays every summer. Like Yes, Mamm!, their goal is to provide cancer support services to those most in need in Kentucky, which is executed through donations. We are honored to partner with them each year and for this incredibly fun event and worthy cause. You can make a direct donation since they were not able to hold their event this year or learn more about them through their website.
Though the possibilities may be more limited this year, the need is still just as great. We hope you’ll take this opportunity to reminisce on your race experience, share your photos on social and encourage your communities to join you in supporting these organizations.
