Announcing NBCC’s Stop the Clock Campaign

Every 13 minutes, a woman dies of breast cancer. We must honor their memories with action. Through our “Stop the Clock” campaign, which NBCC will launch this week, we’re doing just that.

This important digital media campaign aims to get people to take action and Stop the Clock.

Here Are 5 Ways to take action today:

  1. Join NBCC as a Member.  Join with thousands of individuals and hundreds of organizations fighting to end breast cancer.
  2. Lend Your Voice. Contact your elected officials about today’s top issues. Simply enter your name and address and hit send.
  3. Make a Donation.  Support research, education, and training, and our mission to end breast cancer.
  4. Sign up for Our National Action Network. Learn more about timely policy issues and how to take action.
  5. Learn More About Issues Facing the Breast Cancer Community.  Visit our 2020 legislative and public policy priorities.

There are many ways you can get involved sharing the message through social media, creating personalized videos, notifying media outlets, and more. We’ll be sending NBCC advocates instructions and sample social media posts for easy cutting and pasting.

Stay tuned for more information, and together, we will end breast cancer.

This October, Tell Congress, “Spare Us Your Proclamations, Show Us Action”

While Congress usually spends October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month, issuing proclamations and lighting things pink, we at NBCC prefer to take more meaningful action. Now is the time to tell your members of Congress to support H.R. 2178/S. 1374, legislation that will help metastatic breast cancer patients get the health care they critically need.

You can help us spread this message by:

Get Involved in the 2020 Election: Use the Breast Cancer Caucus Toolkit to Reach Candidates

Election day is November 3, and we must make certain that all candidates pay attention to ending breast cancer. NBCC has created a Breast Cancer Caucus Toolkit to let candidates know that breast cancer is an issue they need to address. Is there a Town Hall in your area? We need you to participate and help end breast cancer. One of the elements of our toolkit is a guide to candidate town halls. Today, town halls are mostly virtual; no matter the venue, you may have the opportunity to interact with a presidential candidate. Review the toolkit for tips and talking points on NBCC’s policy platform. Let us know about town halls in your area and how we can help. Email: info@stopbreastcancer.org.

Tell us your NBCC Advocacy Story

NBCC Advocates are fierce! Through training, education, and networking, NBCC Advocates have influenced policy on both the local and national levels, pushed for access to healthcare for all, and supported research focused on ending breast cancer. We are focused on the day when breast cancer is over and done. Impossible? We don’t think so.

We are part of NBCC for a reason, and that reason is different for each of you. You may be a survivor or the family member of someone who has breast cancer or has lost their life to breast cancer. Or, another reason entirely. We need your stories. Why are you an NBCC advocate? We want to share your advocacy story with others so they, too, can become a catalyst in our fight to end breast cancer. Let them know it is not only possible to change the world, but that each one of us can help make that happen.
