The POWER of PINK is a breast cancer risks awareness campaign designed in community partnership by the News Review, Brooke Communication and the Community Cancer Center. Breast health education empowers women to take control of their health by educating them about their body and providing important breast cancer resources.
The 30-day awareness campaign will take place from October 1st through October 31st. The goal is to raise community awareness of the risk factors surrounding breast cancer and promote the healthy lifestyle changes to lower risks.
The promotion of The POWER of PINK is a collaborative effort. The News Review ad sales team will promote a Power of Pink ribbon that can be placed on a store front window or in an ad featured in an October ad.
By the creation of an awareness campaign, promoting public service announcements and offering free education to community members the businesses and individuals involved are able to aid women in our community in playing an active role in their own health care. While there are some different recommendations from medical organizations on the value of breast self-exams, all women's health organizations agree about the value of annual clinical breast exams, and the importance of regular mammograms after the age of 40.
