Let's Be Pink Together for Breast Cancer Awareness + General Mills Giveaway



If you haven't heard, I recently lost a sister-in-law to Breast Cancer and our fight with this deadly disease has become a lot more personal to us. This is one reason, I support all causes and organization that come together to help find the cure to end this terrible diseases' reign of terror! Pink Together on it's 5th year is encouraging everyone to join the fight not just to raise awareness but to encourage and celebrate HOPE with those who needs it most by sharing your story in the Pink Together community!

Here are ways you can be part of this campaign and what Pink Together is doing this year: 

  • Visit PinkTogether.com to share your personal story and messages of hope and read about others´ personal journeys. To encourage personal connections, General Mills will donate $1 to the Komen organization for each Message of Hope that is sent to someone who has shared their story on PinkTogether.com (up to $25,000) during October. This is in addition to a $2 million donation General Mills is making to the Komen organization.
  • This year, for the first time in its five-year history, at PinkTogether.com consumers can choose how $1 million of this donation will be shared between two important Komen programs: the Treatment and Assistance Program, which assists women in securing care they otherwise may not be able to afford, and Prevention Research, which helps unlock the keys to preventing breast cancer. Visit PinkTogether.com from September 19, 2011 through April 14, 2012 to make your choice. Results will be announced on Mother´s Day 2012 - Sunday, May 13.
  • Meet the 2011 Pink Together Survivor Ambassadors, and hear their amazing stories of courage and survival on PinkTogether.com and the Pink Together YouTube Channel.
  • General Mills will also be turning the packaging of participating products pink in recognition of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month this October.

  2. A year ago, I found a rather large lump. My doctors would not give me a satisfactory answer on what it was. Now, I am having health problems, and they are checking me for lung cancer.My fear is that it actually was breast cancer, and it has spread.I tried and saw 3 different doctors at the time. I would say, never give up. Keep finding answers.

  14. My stepmom fought breast cancer about 10 years go ... and WON! I am so blessed to still have her in my life!

    I will admit, that even at 35, I'm not that great at remembering to do a monthly self-check. I know, I know...

  22. I haven't personally been affected by breast cancer, but pretty much every other kind of cancer. It really makes you realize how strong you are and how strong your friends and family are.

  24. A co-worker of mine had it and went thru a lot. She had surgery, chemo, lost all her hair, etc yet she never lost her grace or her spirit. I learned that cancer cannot change the remarkable woman you are.
