October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month: What Will You Contribute?

Breast Cancer Awareness Month is an annual international health campaign organized by major breast cancer charities every October to increase awareness of the disease and to raise funds for research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure. This year I ask, what will you contribute to put an end to this deadly disease?
There’s a variety of events that take place around the world where individuals can get together to make a difference. My favorites are the walks and runs, like the Susan G. Komen 3 Day ‘For the Cure, a sixty mile fundraising walk spread across 3 days, which raises money for breast cancer research. If a walk or run is not your style, you can help provide mammograms for women in need just by getting involved in a fundraiser in the Santa Barbara area or creating your own event.
The National Breast Cancer Foundation also encourages everyone to have their own early detection plan in place and encourage friends and family to do the same. The organization also encourages everyone to read and share the latest educational resources. Beyond the Shock is a free, comprehensive, online guide that is also a resource for women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer.
Perhaps the ultimate contribution would be to donate real estate to help in the fight against breast cancer. It’s easy; just call 1-800-2269-6814 to find how.
Breast cancer is second only to lung cancer in all reported cancer cases, the second most common cancer diagnosed in women in the United States behind skin cancer. Women are about 100 times more likely to develop the disease then men however the survival rates are about the same.
According to the Mayo Clinic, one of the easiest ways to participate in National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is by changing your lifestyle. We who are fortunate enough to live in Santa Barbara enjoy a naturally healthy lifestyle with an abundance of outdoor activities year round, a plethora of places to buy healthy food and a wealth of community support. If you want to purchase a luxury home in any of the upscale communities of Santa Barbara and enjoy our healthy lifestyle, please give me a call at 805.886.9378 or email me at Meantime, please like me on Facebook and twitter.
