October 2019 Healing Place’s Pay it Forward – Susan G Komen Breast Cancer Awareness Month
As part of the Healing Place’s monthly pay it forward campaign for October 2019, Helen Chin Lui donated a portion of proceeds from her books, Know Your Chakras: Introduction to Energy Medicine and Foot Reflexology to Promote Relaxation, to Susan G Komen Breast Cancer Research
Who was Susan G. Komen?
Susan Goodman Koman was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 33 and died at the age of 36 on August 4, 1980. Her younger sister, Nancy Goodman Brinker, believed that Susan’s outcome might have been different if patients knew more about breast cancer and its treatment. Brinker promised Susan that she would do everything she could to end breast cancer. To fulfill that promise, Brinker founded the Susan G Komen Breast Cancer Foundation in Komen’s memory in 1982.
The Susan G. Komen is the largest and best-funded breast cancer organization in the United States. 70% of 2019 research grants focus on metastatic breast cancer. Their mission is to
Save lives by meeting the most critical needs in our communities and investing in breakthrough research to prevent and cure breast cancer.
On the organization’s 25th anniversary In 2008, the organization trademarked a logo in support of its promise “to end breast cancer forever.” The new logo contains a pink ribbon that resembles a runner in motion and reflects the importance of Komen’s signature Race for the Cure event. The race is the fundraising event for breast cancer education and research.
Why Pay it Forward?
Paying it forward means instead of paying someone back, we pay it to someone else to encourage others to do better without expecting anything in return. By paying it forward, in most cases, can change someone’s circumstance, plus inspiring the giver to be a better person.
We have an opportunity to make the world a better place for others and ourselves. Everyone is capable of random acts of kindness. The act itself doesn’t have to be blown out, even acknowledging someone hard on their luck is considered a random act of kindness.
