Freschetta and The Strength of 1



Every ONE of us has the power to make a difference in the fight against breast cancer. The makers of Freschetta® pizza are looking for women to help spread the word about their The Strength of 1™ campaign to help further its mission – to inspire everyone to realize they can make a difference in some way – big or small – in the fight against breast cancer.

Now through the end of October, 2012, the makers of Freschetta® pizza are helping to promote breast cancer awareness through their new The Strength of 1™ campaign, which includes sponsoring Bright Pink, the only national non-profit organization focusing on the prevention and early detection of breast and ovarian cancer in young women, while providing support to high-risk individuals. The mission of this The Strength of 1™ initiative is to inspire everyone to realize they can make a difference in some way in the fight against breast cancer.

Take The Pledge – Join other women and take the pledge to show you have The Strength of 1™ power within you. You can do so at www.facebook.com/freschettapizza

Now there are several ways that you can take the pledge from pledging to learn more about the risk factors, gather your family history, make sure you're self aware of any changes in your breast tissue by way of monthly exams for which you can get monthly reminders via text. You can also pledge to speak up should you notice changes in your body, schedule an annual OB visit, donate, encourage a friend who's fighting breast cancer or even purchase a Freschetta pizza this month. You can choose one or even all.

I would like to encourage you to join the movement by sharing a story about how someone has made a difference, taking The Strength of 1™ pledge on Facebook, or help by spreading the word on Twitter which can be done by simply clicking the Twitter share button at the bottom of this post.

Disclosure: In sharing this information, I have a chance at a prize, but chose to share it because as a woman this is an issue that personally concerns me.
