It is October, which means it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. As a breast cancer survivor, I am passionate about getting the word out for organizations that not just raise awareness, but also give to research.
I think of my 3 beautiful girls and how their chances of getting breast cancer are higher because of my own history. I think of one of my dearest friends whose has metastatic breast cancer and is actively fighting for her life. I think of countless women who have emailed me telling me their stories after reading my cancer story on this blog. I think of those I knew who are no longer here because of breast cancer.
Yes. Continued research is a MUST.
The type of pink I promote is important, and I take it very personally when I see something as terrible and personal as breast cancer used as a way to raise money for the wrong things and in the wrong way.
Megabus and Breast Cancer Research Foundation Partner Up
Megabus.com is doing it RIGHT in their donation and support efforts for Breast Cancer Research with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF), a foundation that I trust.
They have partnered with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation in a super fun nationwide contest by encouraging people to share their story, or the story of a loved one affected by breast cancer who deserves a weekend getaway with literally a busload of friends and family.
CAN YOU IMAGINE HOW FUN THAT WOULD BE?
To participate, you must share a story about how you or a loved one have been affected by breast cancer. You must also tell where you would like to go on your trip, and include a photo.
I love that megabus.com chose the Breast Cancer Research Foundation as their cause. I very much appreciate that megabus cares. They know the disease has affected many of its employees and their families, not to mention the thousands of passengers who use the megabus service to connect with loved ones every day. I am thankful they are doing something about breast cancer that matters and will make a difference.
In need of a bus? Have a trip coming up? Consider riding megabus!
I just checked fares for a trip to Chicago to see a sweet friend and was delighted with the price. I would love to board a bus (with wi-fi none-the-less!) and a few hours later arrive in Chicago. No worrying about stopping or paying for gas, no driving, no maps! I could write a couple of blog posts or read a novel or watch movies on my Kindle or take a NAP! I’m thinking all of the above!
Megabus.com is the first, affordable, express bus service to offer city center-to-city center travel for as low as $1 and operates service to/from more than 120 major cities in North America. Since its launch in April 2006, megabus.com has served more than 50 million customers. Megabus.com is a subsidiary of Coach USA, one of the largest transpiration companies in North America.
Keep your eye out for a pink megabus! It will be traveling throughout the month of October and be stopping in various cities including Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington D.C., New York, Albany, and Boston.
