The #GoAskYourMother Campaign Encourages Talks About Family Health History
Bright Pink, a national non-profit, focuses on the prevention and early detection of breast and ovarian cancer in young women. For this Mother's Day, they are launching the #GoAskYourMother campaign to encourage family members to have conversations with mom about family health history starting with these questions:
- Do we have a family history of breast cancer or any other types of cancer?
- Have you or any of our family members been tested or diagnosed with the BRCA gene before?
- What are our family risk factors?
Join the campaign, which launches on Thursday, May 07. Choose a photo of you and your mom from now or way-back-when with the following caption: “Join @bebrightpink and @aerie and #GoAskYourMother about your family health history. Learn how: www.GoAskYourMother.org.”
