About this kit

The Colorado Cancer Coalition created this tool kit to reduce the burden of breast cancer in Colorado through social media awareness and outreach. The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has released a state cancer plan  (www.coloradocancerplan.org) to reduce the incidence and mortality of cancer in Colorado by identifying state trends in risk factors, cancer prevalence and mortality. This burden can be reduced through education on risk factors, cancer screenings, and the provision of support for patients, survivors, and their family members.

We hope you use this guide to help spread awareness of breast cancer during the month of October and throughout the year.

Who should use this kit? 

This kit is for anyone who wants to help spread the word about the risks, signs, and symptoms of breast cancer. It was created for health care providers, nonprofits, survivors, and patient advocates to help them amplify their social media reach during Breast Cancer Awareness month. You’ll find suggested sample social media messaging that you can post as is or alter to fit your intended audience.
