Do you still want fears?

My biggest fear is that I will not be in my children's lives as they grow up.

My second biggest fear is missing out on the rest of my life that I had been planning on: more traveling, furthering my career, spending time with old friends, holding grandchildren.

Thank you all for sharing your deepest fears/worries/concerns. It is not an easy place to go.

We wanted to share our new Campaign information here, as well as the link, which relates to why we asked this of you.https://community.breastcancer.org/forum/114/topic...


The new campaign from Breastcancer.org called Take the Fright Out of Breast Cancer™, is a national grassroots movement to turn Halloween into a holiday with a purpose. Our goal is to replace some of the fears around mammography, diagnosis, and treatment decisions with information that will help women reduce their risk of the disease or its recurrence and to teach them what they need to know about early detection and testing options.

We know that we can never remove all of the fear around breast cancer, but we hope we can help ease the fears with awareness, information, and support. We also know that too many women are missing life-saving opportunities for early detection and aren't getting the best possible treatments. With unclear and inconsistent recommendations around screening and detection and with so much new information about treatments, women are often confused and anxious as they try to make important decisions for their health.

As always, Breastcancer.orgis committed to replacing uncertainty with clarity, confusion with confidence, and fear with knowledge.

This October, we're asking people to come together to 'take the fright out' by celebrating Halloween with a purpose. Our goal is to get your help sharing important information about breast cancer and the ways to protect breast health, all while raising funds for Breastcancer.org. Please help us continue providing critical information and support to everyone we serve — with or worried about breast cancer.

The fundraising from Take the Fright Out of Breast CancerTM goes directly toward our existing digital programs and improvements we are making to our website that will provide a better and more personalized experience for our nearly 20 million annual visitors.

Please visit www.TaketheFrightOut.com to learn how to get involved, and feel free to share your thoughts and ideas here (or PM our Moderators)!

Thank you, thank you, on behalf of the BCO team and the many people we can help,

The Mods

Mods. It's great that you've worked out a new campaign around the theme of fright, but I'm surprised that you don't mention men with breast cancer as part of this event. Are you considering a seperate event for men, or when you mention women, do you mean women and men?
