National Breast Cancer Awareness Month for Parents and Kids
Posted Oct 12 2009 12:00am
Every October, National Breast Cancer Awareness month seeks to promote breast cancer awareness as well as empower women of all ages to take control of their breast health. By participating in walks or runs, handing out educational fliers, and promoting National Mammography Day (October 16th), women (and men!) can all do their part to make a difference.
But what about families with kids? Kids Konnected is a national nonprofit that seeks to help the kids of breast cancer sufferers cope with the devastating disease. Through their books, Love Sick and Moxie, Kids Konnected is able to support young people by helping them deal with the challenging emotions that stem from a cancer diagnosis. Want to help out? KidsKonnected.org provides unique donation opportunities, plus family-friendly volunteer ideas.
