LinksHelp for Humanity: Bahamas Relief Fund

One month ago today, Hurricane Dorian made landfall on the Abaco Islands of the Bahamas and a day later hit Grand Bahama Island. An estimated 13,000 homes were damaged by the storm’s wrath and 70,000 people have been left homeless according to the United Nations.

Under LinksHelp for Humanity: Bahamas Relief, The Links Foundation immediately mobilized to contribute to the relief efforts.  Link sisters and chapters also quickly began sending critical goods for those affected by Hurricane Dorian as part of the first phase of our humanitarian aid.

Monetary Donations

We are now moving into the second phase of our disaster relief efforts and will begin accepting monetary donations. The LinksHelp for Humanity: Bahamas Relief Fund has been established. Any amount contributed individually or by a chapter to The Links Foundation, Incorporated will transform the lives of the thousands of Bahamians impacted by the storm.

OCTOBER IS BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH

  • What we know among U.S.Women.....
  • In women under 40 yrs, African-American women have higher rates of breast cancer compared to non-Hispanic white women. Implication: Mammograms need to start before 40 yrs of age (Mid-career women)
  • Between ages 65-84, White women have slightly higher rates of breast cancer compared to African-American women (see below), although African women have poorer prognosis. Implication: Breast cancer is fairly similar in African American vs. White women, but the risk of mortality is higher. 

What we know...

Everyone’s breasts are different, and your breasts can change with age and at different times of the month. It’s important to get to know how your breasts normally look and feel so it will be easier to spot if there are any unusual changes for you.

If you do spot any unusual changes to your breasts you should get them checked out by your doctor.

Finding out about breast cancer signs and symptoms can help you understand what breast changes to look out for. 

What can we do?

image36

National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a chance to raise awareness about the importance of finding breast cancer early. Make a difference! Spread the word about mammograms, and encourage communities, organizations, families, and individuals to get involved.
