We would one day like to live in a world where breast cancer is an afterthought. Until that day comes, there are many ways that you can do your part to fight this terrible disease which has taken from us mothers, grandmothers, aunts, sisters, wives and other loved ones. One of the easiest things that you can do is participate in a local walk-a-thon or short race. Just realizing that you and your family are not alone in fighting cancer can be monumental for some. Of course, raising money for breast cancer research is critical to fighting the disease, but make sure that you do your own research into the charities that you chose to donate to. If you’re looking for other ways to get involved, check out this great video of UMass students and faculty doing their part to spread awareness about products with cancer-causing agents in them. Great job guys!
