Asset 3

It's Breast Cancer Awareness Month

This Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we'd like to partner with you to raise awareness in a positive, uplifting way across cultures where conversations about the body and health are often silenced. This October, we're focusing on diverse women who refuse to be silenced and responding to “shushing” with “let’s talk about it, let’s talk about your breasts.”

Let's focus on the importance of women sharing their stories with one another, and bring awareness that 40 is the age at which every woman should begin receiving screening mammograms.

Event Resources

Each year more than 300 schools, organizations, and businesses support The Rose by partnering as a third party fundraiser. The generous donations we receive each year from community leaders, like you, help ensure that The Rose can continue to provide quality breast health care regardless of a patient’s financial circumstance. Third-party fundraising is fundraising brought upon a grander scale. These events are generally organized by an organization, such as businesses, school groups, restaurants, retailers, etc. These events come in many different styles and sizes and can be a lot of fun for businesses to get involved within their community.

We look forward to working with each of you on one common goal to save lives.
