At Texas Fertility Center, we passionately advocate for women’s health issues, from changing laws to make infertility treatment affordable to raising awareness about breast cancer prevention and treatment. During Breast Cancer Awareness Month, TFC will share blog topics, Facebook posts and Twitter tweets that encourage our online friends to get involved.
When you LIKE, share or retweet TFC messages, you help multiply the impact of our breast cancer awareness messages!
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Texas Fertility Center staff registered as a team to walk the Komen Race for the Cure. The race will takes place in Austin on Sunday, Nov. 4, about 7 miles from the Texas Fertility Center Austin office (we’re also in Round Rock, North Austin and soon in San Antonio!). Thousands of survivors, advocates, caring family, friends and neighbors will band together to support a cure for breast cancer.
1) Search for the Texas Fertility Center team name, and join us at Komen Race for the Cure. We also encourage you to walk on your own, or form a team to experience the solidarity and impact of a Komen for the Cure event.
2) Attend other October breast cancer awareness events in Austin, like the Stiletto Stampede on October 20 at The Triangle Park; Fashion Fusion on October 20 at the Marchesa Hall and Theater; and the Texas Mamma Jamma Ride against Breast Cancer on October 27th. Search for a comprehensive list of Austin breast cancer events and resources, such as Breast Cancer Resource Centers of Texas, on the Austin Statesman website.
3) Hold a fundraiser of your own! Sell lemonade, host a dinner party and encourage guests to bring a donation, or ask 10 friends to donate $10 … get creative about making a difference!
4) Become an advocate by contacting your representative in support of breast cancer legislation.
Approximately 39,510 women and 440 men will die from breast cancer in the U.S. this year. Working together, Texas Fertility Center believes we can save lives by supporting research and raising awareness about early detection through mammograms and breast self-exams. If you have been diagnosed with breast cancer, contact Texas Fertility Center to learn more about fertility preservation.
