Breast Cancer Foundation (BCF) organizes various programmers for cancer patients to get volunteers who can support the survivors and their families. Counseling sessions and trainings are also organized for the survivors and volunteers. BCF is one of the few breast cancer advocacy groups in the world with a Men’s Support League to emphasize men’s role in society’s fight against this illness. BCF is available on various social networks, which helps the patients to get immediate answers to their questions related to their disease. They have a small community by which patients, volunteers and community members can interact with each other and get the best possible advice and help.
BCF’s Healing through the Arts Programme organizes a lot of fun activities for women diagnosed with, and survivors of Breast Cancer. These activities play a very important role to help the patients in their short and long-term recovery. BCF has chosen some very interesting and simple activities for this programme which can be easily enjoyed by women. These activities include Dragon Boat Training, Art of Breathing, Zumba, Tai Chi, Sewing, Yoga, Choir, Ukulele, Art Class, Latin Line Dance and Crochet. They are conducted by BCF Volunteers, most of whom are either breast cancer survivors or professionals from their respective fields. BCFs healing through the Arts Programme, helps the victim in improving their physical and mental health. It also boosts their confidence that women living with breast cancer can continue to lead full, active lives. Survivors can register themselves with the activity of their interest.
BCF has a wig loan programme, to help women who lose hair during treatment of breast cancer. The Wig Loan Programme assists women diagnosed with, and survivors of Breast Cancer to borrow wigs. To be eligible for this wig loan programme, they would need to be members of Breast Cancer Foundation. BCF prepare these wigs by recycling hairs donated by various donors and volunteers.
One of the most famous events which BCF organizes every year to support cancer patients is Pink Ribbon Walk. Thousands of people take part in this event to show their support in eradicating breast cancer and also volunteer to help cancer patients in the best possible ways. There are goodies and medals are given to people who take part in the walk to show their support. The walk is divided into two categories-3.5 km and 5 km. 3.5 km is the walk category and 5 km is the race. There are security and first aid facilities for the participants.
Participants flaunted their tattoos: People, who participated in the walk, displayed their pink ribbon temporary tattoos proudly. They were very enthusiastic to apply these tattoos to show their contribution and support for eradicating breast cancer. These customized temporary tattoos were printed by us, which fulfilled their cause and made the volunteers as well as us super happy and proud.
If you are organizing an marathon or a walk, custom temporary tattoos can be a very good option. They are economical and look super cool. They can add a zing to any event and can be a great attraction for the crowd. Do contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to order customized temporary tattoos.
