8 Ways Men Can Get Involved With Breast Cancer Awareness

Posted Date: October 29, 2021

While breast cancer awareness is mainly focused on women, here are 8 ways men (and everyone) can get involved:
  1. Reminders. Women should get annual mammograms after age 40, but life gets busy and things get in the way. Take a moment to remind the amazing women in your life to take a moment for themselves and schedule their mammogram.
  2. Participate. Join in local awareness events like breast cancer walks and 5ks, and even better, encourage others to join you.
  3. Volunteer. Take participation a step further and volunteer with your local cancer support group or cancer fundraising group.
  4. Donate. If you don't have time to give, donate funds to foundations that support breast cancer patients and breast cancer research.
  5. Wear pink. There's no more identifiable way to spread breast cancer awareness than to wear pink.
  6. Educate. Take time to learn more about breast cancer from sites like breastcancer.org and then educate others about breast cancer. Knowing things like signs and symptoms will help you identify when someone you love may need to get a mammogram.
  7. Support. If you know someone going through breast cancer, the biggest thing they will need is support. Be present - listen, provide meals, offer transportation, or even to sit through appointments. A little support can go a long way.
  8. Share. By taking a moment to share the things you do to support breast cancer awareness, you could inspire others to do the same.
