A Valentine for Those You Love

Valentine for eNewsletterI remember the excitement of Valentine’s Day when I was a child.  Giving Valentines enabled me to tell all of my friends how I felt about them through the simplicity of a perforated card, and receiving them meant that people liked me, too.  In our busy adult lives, we tend to forget the importance of how a small gesture that says “I care about you” can brighten someone’s day.

Komen has a suggestion for a grown-up Valentine that you can send to every woman who impacts your life. Learn more »

Learn to Become a Breast Health Advocate

Part of Komen’s mission to save lives includes empowering others in the knowledge of breast health.  With only a small staff here in Richmond, we rely heavily on volunteers across Central Virginia to help us let others know the importance of early detection.  To give you the tools to talk with others about the importance of breast health and Komen’s mission, we will be offering three volunteer training sessions in March.  If you are unable to attend but would like to join our effort to save lives, please let us know by emailing info@komencentralva.org.
