Step aside Thanksgiving and Halloween, the real hero of October is coming through. It’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month! Each October, the Cancer Society commits itself to raising awareness for this cause. The money raised throughout the month goes towards funding cancer research, working with governments to enact healthy public policies, and allocating resources to make sure those affected by cancer are getting the support they need. Last year, donations made it possible for the Cancer Society to contribute $40 million towards research, helping get us one step closer to a cure.
Wondering how you can show your support this October? Easy! Wednesday, October 18th, from 10am – 3pm, the Queen’s Law Cancer Society will be selling pink ribbons in the lounge for you to wear with pride and show your support! Oh, and let’s not forget, on Wednesdays, we wear pink! Why not go the extra mile: buy a pin, but also wear pink to support breast cancer awareness, while living out your secret fantasy of being a plastic!
