In Honor of Our Heroes

This site was created in honor of my mom who lost the fight with breast cancer in December of 2007. The Pink Ribbon Crusade is dedicated to spreading awareness, supporting research, and connecting those currently battling breast cancer with the resources they need, in the hope that one day, breast cancer will be fully eradicated.Photobucket Photobucket

Kick off October, Pink Style

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month
October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month has come around again. We at Pink Ribbon Crusade, urge you to make this month count!

So to kick off this month, pink style, I've rounded up several ways that you can help in the fight against breast cancer. The best part, each one of these are free!

  • Stop by The Breast Cancer Site once a day to click the pink button. There is also a quick and painless feature that you sign up for allowing The Breast Cancer Site to email you daily reminders to stop by and click the button. 100% of the donations come from site sponsors and go toward free mammograms to those in need. Since 2000, they have "funded free mammograms for more than 11,000 women in need."
  • Sign up for Army of Women. There are many studies that you can participate in to further breast cancer research. And you don't have to have breast cancer to participate. Just click on the "current projects" link and browse around. You're sure to find one that you can participate in.
  • Wear pink. And tell people why you choose to wear it.
  • Link to resources. This is great way to get word around. If you find a site that you want to tell people about, go ahead and tell people. You can:link to them on your blog or website, even your myspace and facebook pages, you can twitter about them. It doesn't matter what you do, as long as you are getting the message out there.
