When it comes to dealing with people’s lives you’re going to get a little emotional no matter what the situation is; whether your teen got an A on a test, your toddler drew all over the wall or someone is very sick. Your feelings and emotions are uncontrollable so when someone is very sick you may not know how to cope with it; especially if it’s something severe like cancer. Do you know someone with breast cancer or any other type of cancer? It’s a heartbreaking disease that you just don’t want to hear about, but there are so many ways you can help with the cause for a cure. Even if you’re low on money and you can’t support the cause that way there are other options for you.
Think of all the thrifty ways you can get involved to show your support. Are you a crafter or crocheter? Now is the time to learn and become budget friendly as it’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Once the door opens to crafts and crocheting you just won’t want to stop. One of my favorite crochet patterns for Breast Cancer Awareness is the Breast Cancer Awareness Slouch Hat. This is an intermediate crochet pattern that might take a few tries to perfect, but it is so worth it.
This is the best kind of free crochet pattern you can make because it will put a smile on someone’s face. Make one for yourself or make many for cancer patients; it is the small things in life that make a big difference.
There are a few things you can do to reduce the risk:
- Control your weight
- Get plenty of exercise
- Maintain a healthy diet
- Get annual checkups and mammograms
If you’re looking to help support Breast Cancer, there are also a few things you can do:
- Y-ME Race
- Susan G Komen for the Cure
- Avon Walk
- Crochet for any hospital or charity
Take the budget friendly route and crochet some beautiful Breast Cancer hats. You’d be amazed at how much impact you can make on one single person with a project like this.
