A New Take on Breast Cancer Awareness Month...

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and it is discouraging to see misguided the “celebration” is – there are pink M&Ms, pink buckets of fried chicken, and of course the constant reminder that the best way to reduce your risk of breast cancer is to have mammograms.
This year, we have a constructive alternative. Healthy on Purpose is partnering with Wellness Forum Health and the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) to promote a different awareness campaign designed to educate women and show them how to really reduce their risk of breast cancer.
Women will be asked to sign a pledge card with 4 commitments:
  • Choose plant-based foods
  • Exercise regularly
  • Limit alcohol
  • Maintain a healthy weight
Those who sign the pledge through Healthy on Purpose and Wellness Forum Health will receive a $100 coupon good toward one of our online educational programs, and also have access to a free lecture on breast health. We will be donating $25 to PCRM and the wonderful work this organization does for every coupon redeemed by November 15.
This promotion starts October 1. If you would like to sign a pledge and/or help by asking women to sign the pledge, please send an email to
