Breast Cancer Awareness

the words

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month — if you’ve noticed pink ribbons popping up all around Tacoma, WA, that’s why. In this Vista del Rey Blog post, we will be sharing some ways that you can help spread awareness and join the fight against breast cancer. Keep reading for ideas on how you can get involved.


Start an individual fundraiser, business fundraiser, or student & sports fundraiser. The funds you raise will go towards providing free resources and screenings, education about breast cancer, and a supportive hand to those going through cancer treatment.


One way you can help is by donating to The National Breast Cancer Foundation. This money goes to providing mammograms, breast health services, education, and support for those affected by breast cancer throughout all 50 states. You can donate in honor of someone or choose to donate anonymously.

Spread the Word

Social Media has become a powerful way to spread the word in an incredibly far-reaching way. Like the NBCF Facebook page and share their posts, follow @NFCF on Twitter and retweet, and follow NBCF on Instagram to spread hope.


Shop in the NBCF Shop for apparel, wristbands, and other items to express your support for the fight against breast cancer. All net proceeds benefit programs that are Helping Women Now. You can also help by buying items from NBCF partners or donating to fundraisers whose proceeds go towards breast center research, educational programs, providing breast health services, and other NBCF services.

Learn the Facts

You can also make a difference by learning the facts about breast cancer and sharing what you’ve learned with others. Find the facts about breast cancer on the National Breast Cancer Foundation’s website. Knowledge can be powerful and be an effective method of prevention and early detection.

These are only a few of the countless ways to get involved in the fight against breast cancer. Join our apartment community in a combined effort by spreading Breast Cancer Awareness in whatever ways you can. Thanks for taking the time to read our post. Don’t forget to wear pink this month!
