October resized 600Get ready to start seeing the color pink! October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the color pink will help spread awareness for those affected by breast cancer. According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “aside from non-melanoma skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common form of cancer in women.”  Organizations, supporters and survivors use October to discuss their stories, treatments and to help fund research. Everyone knows someone who has been affected by cancer, but this month please take a moment and recognize those affected specifically by breast cancer.

Below is a list of mGive clients raising money to fund cancer research, screening, education and treatment programs. You can help wherever you are by simply sending a text message. After you confirm your mobile gift with YES, when prompted please reply with YES again to receive exclusive mobile news from that organization on how your gift is making a difference.

If you have a Facebook account, you can support most of these organizations on your profile page by adding the mGive Facebook Application.
