Ways to Help Support Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Every month the Allen School of Health Sciences is proud to support a great cause that may impact our friends, families, and patients as our students begin their new careers in the field of healthcare and October is no exception. Each October our campuses “Go Pink” to help support Breast Cancer Awareness. We also educate ourselves and raise funds and awareness for this great cause. Below you will find more awesome ways you can help support those dealing with Breast Cancer.


Check your local retailers for pink accessories that not only show the world you support a great cause, but again will help a portion of your money find its way to great agencies that help support patients and families as they battle this disease.

Go To Lunch

Be on the look-out for restaurants, coffee shops, and more that serve up tasty treats with a pink twist. Not only will you indulge your sweet tooth, but you’ll support a great cause at the same time.


If a purchase isn’t your cup of tea and you prefer to be a little more hands-on look for opportunities to volunteer. Contact local Breast Cancer support organizations, participate in fund raisers, or look around for local events you can participate in to help show your support.


Adding the hashtag #BreastCancerAwarenessMonth will help draw attention to a great cause and help spread awareness to the issue. Every little act of support makes a difference.

Wear Pink

Remember that every Friday in October you can wear pink to school and show your support. And don’t forget to share your awesome pink pictures on our Instagram account! The Allen School is a proud supporter of Breast Cancer Awareness in the month of October. If you’d like to learn more about this cause and all of the others we support throughout the year through our Institution for HOPE campaign.
