GIVE BLOOD

By giving blood, you give life. I had to have a platelet transfusion after my first chemo because my blood was not clotting, which can be very dangerous.

A lot of people who go through chemo need transfusions, sometimes before every chemo because chemo is very damaging to our neutrophil counts and we need these to be a certain level to undergo chemo. By you donating your blood you can help us get the treatment we need to get better.

Not only does giving blood help cancer victims, it helps everyone who undergo’s medical treatment. Blood has an expiry date so we are in constant need of more.

DONATE

There are a variety of different charities and ways to donate your time and money to help Breasties in need. Here are a few cool ones I have found throughout my treatment. We need more money to find a cure to permanently end this terrible disease!

RAISE AWARENESS – Talk!

Breast Cancer is something that we all know about, but we often link it to older women 50+. Breast Cancer needs awareness in the younger ages, both female and male. It says on the Breast Cancer Foundation website we need to be Breast Aware from the age of 20.

A simple post on instagram or a conversation between friends will help spread the word about young Breast Cancer. We need to talk about young Breast Cancer and have girls and boys check their Breasts regularly by passing on the knowledge.
