Let's Turn Southern Nevada Pink!

With National Breast Cancer Awareness Month right around the corner, we are challenging you, Southern Nevada, to join the fight against breast cancer this October. Whether you participate in an event, make a donation, or simply remind a friend to get a mammogram, you become part of the breast cancer movement by making a difference. Help us raise funds, save lives, and educate our community about the importance of early detection.

Here are several ways you can get involved this October:

Make a Donation

 

Because 10 million women around the world could die from breast cancer in the next 25 years, we continue to fight every minute of every day to save every life. Thanks to people like you who share our vision of a world without breast cancer, we’ve made huge discoveries in finding new and better ways to detect the disease at its earliest stages.

We now know so much more about the different types of breast cancer and specific ways to attack each kind. And we work day-in and day-out in communities throughout the world to ensure everyone can access quality care and these new advances. But the fact is, breast cancer is still life-threatening, and until we can keep people from dying from it, we need your help - your generosity is crucial as we continue this fight.

Of your donation, 75% stays in Southern Nevada to provide breast health education, screening and treatment services to the medically underserved, while the remaining 25% goes to support life-saving research initiatives.

Join us in the promise and become part of the fight against breast cancer by making your contribution today.


Participate in an Event, Activity, or Promotion

 

Year round, many generous local businesses and organizations host events, activities, and promotions which benefit the Southern Nevada Affiliate. Through your participation, these third party events are a growing part of our total revenue and an important vehicle in advancing our promise: to save lives and end breast cancer forever.
