According to BreastCancer.org, “Every three minutes a woman in the United
States is diagnosed with breast cancer.” Breast cancer is a serious
illness that affects a significant population and should not be
disregarded.

Research concerning breast cancer prevention and early cancer detection
is constantly conducted, but some people are still uninformed about how
to protect themselves against this disease. So, how can you educate your
employees, clients and patients about breast cancer? One simple way is by
recognizing Breast Cancer Awareness month in October. Throughout the
month, give employees, clients and patients promotional products that
send a message – tell them to learn about breast cancer and the ways to
detect it before it takes another life.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month is filled with different activities to help
people learn about the disease. One of the events that takes place every
year in various cities around the United States is the Breast Cancer
Three-Day. This walk allows breast cancer survivors, their family and
friends a chance to walk together to raise breast cancer awareness. The
event raises money to help find the cure for breast cancer. This year,
why not give out pedometers to employees, clients and patients to
encourage them to train for this event. With each step taken, they can
think about the lives that could be saved by participating in this event.

Another promotional product that can inform people of breast cancer
awareness is a gift of chocolate. Now, you may think this sounds silly,
but there is some logic behind it. Not only do a lot of people enjoy
chocolate, but dark chocolate is filled with antioxidants that help ward
off cancer. Ok, it may not be as good as a salad, but hey, it’s fun! Give
employees these tasty chocolate bars with the slogan “Don’t be in the
dark! Educate yourself about breast cancer,” printed on a sheet of paper
with the time and date of the Three-Day that is near your city. If you
don’t think your employees will like the chocolate, create a similar gift
with one of our antioxidant-filled green tea samplers. This is a creative
and tasty way to create awareness about breast cancer.

Breast cancer awareness can be promoted in a more traditional manner as
well. One great promotional product to consider is a pink car magnet in
the shape of a ribbon. These pink ribbon magnets may not seem original,
but they are a great way to raise awareness everywhere you go. The magnet
will be seen by everyone who drives by.

Whether you discuss breast cancer through the giveaway of a promotional
product or by sending out a memo reminding employees about the importance
of Breast Cancer Awareness month, you are spreading an important message
and educating people about breast cancer.
