New Orleans Printer gives 5 ways to support the fight against breast cancer

 

October is breast cancer awareness month and this month has special meaning for this New Orleans printer. Here at DocuMart New Orleans our staff is our family. When one of us hurts, we all hurt for them. That is why when one of our team members fights cancer we all fight cancer. Finding a cure is not something that we can do on our own. When we all make the decision to stand up with those fighting, then we can make a difference. Below are some great ways to help this cause.

Donate your time and/or money:
There are so many ways that people are able to donate their time to help. The American Cancer Society has a wonderful program that is available for breast cancer survivors to help those who are dealing with the disease. These people have been through the rocky time of cancer and will know what you are going to be experiencing. There are also many walks and runs in which you can raise money to give to great organizations that focus in cancer research and early detection methods. No matter how someone feels about donating money, there is no denying that finding a cure is not something that comes cheap. If you don’t have the option of donating your time because of your schedule, you can always donate to any of the MANY different breast cancer foundations. Also, don’t forget to “Think Pink” where a portion of the money you spend on something goes to the fight against the disease.
Here is a great list of some of the groups you can donate to.

Give Cancer a voice:
It is important that we let our government know our thoughts and feeling on the importance of breast cancer research. You can contact your states’ representative and tell them how you feel so they understand what citizens are feeling. There are also petitions to sign and e-mails to write that can have a great impact as well.

Help with research:
ClinicalTrials.gov is a site that will show you the clinical trials going on what involve breast cancer. By participating in these trials you are helping get one step closer to finding a cure or finding better prevention methods.

Take care of yourself:
It is recommended that women ages 50 to 74 years should get a mammogram every 2 years. Women younger than 50 should talk to a doctor about when to start and how often to have a mammogram. To help lower the risks of breast cancer one should be active, eat a healthy diet and limit your alcohol intake.

Be a friend:
People who come face to face with cancer need support. These people need an ear to listen and a shoulder to cry on. Even when people have a family support group make sure that they know you are always there for them as well. Sometimes it is easier to talk with someone who is not a family member. Do things that let them know that you are thinking about them. Whether it’s a card, a phone call or bringing a meal over. Let them know that they are never alone in this battle.

Take some time to decide on which ways you are going to join New Orleans Printer and support this cause.
