Since October is breast cancer awareness month, breast cancer survivors are campaigning for the whole world to have enough knowledge about how a cancer patient manages and fights her own battle.
Even if there are new ways of treating breast cancer, it is better to have a check-up in order to prevent further damage.
Pink Ribbon Is For Breast Cancer Awareness
The Capital District Authority (CDTA) is forming a partnership with American Cancer Society in order to spread awareness regarding the campaign of Making Strides Breast Cancer Walk.
For the whole month of October, CDTA will use Busplus in order to turn heads by making one seat of each Busplus into color pink. Their plan is to put a pink cloth printed with a pink ribbon and words that will boost up the morale of a cancer patient.
On Oct. 16, a pink hashtag will be displayed on Albany's Washington Park regarding the Making Strides Breast Cancer Walk and facts about breast cancer. The organization wants to inform everybody what breast cancer is all about.
In Kansas, the whole city is joining the Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Several shops, fountains and hospitals will turn pink for the whole October. With this move, the city hopes for encouraging women to get checked for early detection, Fox 4K reported.
Shawnee Mission Medical Center also collaborated with Prairie Village to turn the whole town pink. Many participated with this campaign, making it easy for national organizations to help breast cancer patients to increase awareness around the country.
A Walk To Save Lives
Kathy Schwab has walked about 1,000 miles to raise funds for cancer treatment and to help their organization.
Schwab started her journey back in 2002 when she joined the 14 Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk and gathered almost $50,000 encouraging people to participate with the battle against breast cancer, according to Wand TV.
Schwab wants to help the battle not just with breast cancer but also with the other cancers that are destroying lives.
