Philips Healthcare is Educating, Empowering, and Encouraging Women

This is a sponsored post by Philips Healthcare

We all think pink every October, and the awareness of breast cancer prevention is just a part of life. That said, we still have so far to go. I have to be honest and admit that as a woman over 40, I am not doing all that I should be.

I went to my 25th high school reunion this summer, and as I was connecting with people, I found out that one of my dear friends was treated for breast cancer about five years ago. I was floored. I have two other friends my age who had breast cancer before 40. I didn’t walk through it with them either, but I think there was something about my friend — my high school friend who I still remember as a teen girl — that brought it so close to home.

    I would take my friend Lauren out and pamper her. She has had brain cancer, skin cancer and most recently breast cancer. She is a fighter and a survivor. She could use a little TLC!

    I would adopt a family for Christmas with this. It would go towards Christmas dinner & presents for a family in need.

    My employer has a special “cause” we always give to. It’s a backpack program where food is sent home with some children on weekends. For some, it might be the only real food they have when schools aren’t open.

    I am the PTA volunteer in charge of my daughter’s school’s “Croc Cheer” program (we are the Crocodiles!!) which purchases gifts for kids at her school this holiday season. We usually ask people to purchase an outfit and one toy. I could buy a few outfits and toys with this gift card!

    A pink breast cancer shirt with a matching hat…I have been wanting to get one for a while but never did yet..

  17. Jill Myrick says

    I’d give it it my neighbor,who is recently single and she is due in a few weeks with a baby. This would help her out.

  19. Neiddy says

    The cold weather is coming soon and there is people around here that can’t afford warmer clothes. Using the gift card to buy sweaters and jackets for those in need seems like the right thing to do

    Since Thanksgiving is coming up. I will buy Thanksgiving meals for the less unfortunate. I do it every year and it feels good to pay it foward
