There are many ways to get involved with your community in the effort to reduce the negative impact that cancer has on all of our lives.
Below are some that we recommend:
Join a Local Coalition:
The Louisiana Healthy Communities Coalition is currently working on several areas of community health and well-being, many of which will impact cancer prevention and control. Click here for more information on what efforts are underway in your community and how you can help!
Participate in Walks and Runs:
The American Cancer Society and Komen for the Cure have walks and runs throughout the year. These events help you stay fit and healthy, and they help raise money to provide life saving cancer screenings or access to treatment and other services to those who may not be able to afford it. Find you local chapter to see how you can get involved.
By connecting to our social media platforms such as Facebook or Twitter, you can get updates on events in Louisiana, important news articles, and tips about healthy behaviors that help reduce your risk of cancer.
Donating directly is a great way to show your support for life and the health of your community. Over 75% of the funds donated to our programs go directly to women for breast cancer screening. Click here to donate.
