Breastcancer.org stands with the #NoMatterMyAge campaign, which focuses on the need for all breast cancer patients, regardless of age, to get as much information as they can before making a treatment decision.
What was happening in your life when you were diagnosed? What information helped guide your decision?
Share your story on Facebook or Instagram and use BOTH the hashtag #NoMatterMyAge and tag @breastcancerorg in the post copy.
If we reach 10 total posts with the #NoMatterMyAge hashtag and our organization tagged on social media, we will receive a small grant. The organization with the highest number of tagged posts will receive an additional grant amount. Campaign ends on 6/26. Learn more at www.nomattermyage.org.
