As the month of September is progressing, your National Officer Team is proud to be encouraging service through our monthly service theme initiative! This is why we are excited to announce the initiative for October: Breast Cancer Awareness. According to recent statistics released from the National Cancer Institute, 1 out of every 8 women will develop breast cancer within her lifetime. The American Cancer Society reports that 1 out of every 1,000 men will develop breast cancer. Breast cancer is something that impacts countless individuals each and every day.
We challenge you and your chapters to promote awareness of the signs and become a champion for Breast Cancer Awareness this October. There are several ways to get involved, but here are some of the suggestions we have compiled for you:
Remember, these are just a few suggestions that we have looked into; feel free to branch out!
Don’t forget to tell us about your service experience by sharing photos on Twitter and using the hashtag #BPAService. We can’t wait to see all that you accomplish and how you choose to Spread Your Wings BPA!
