2016 Breast Cancer Awareness Month


2016 National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Please join us as we amplify our awareness efforts, visibility & programming from today through October 31. 

Each year our communications team partners with Susan G. Komen Nebraska and Susan G. Komen Missouri to create one of the most comprehensive content campaigns surrounding National Breast Cancer Awareness Month including 44 days of education, infographics, webinars, Twitter chats, contests, emails, blog posts and more. This content is shared with the entire North Central Region of Susan G. Komen as well as others around the country. This is in addition to the award-winning social and digital campaigns we already have planned for the month of October and beyond. We encourage you to share our education with others (Feel free to note where you got it from as well). Need more or more in-depth information on a topic, event or subject matter? Let us know and we are happy to help.

This is what we do and why we are here!




Check back each Monday for updated links to the
previous week’s’ worth of content, education and more!
