We hope to see you at the Resource Fair!
Tell us about your business/non profit and how it benefits local families?
Team Maureen is a nonprofit based in Falmouth dedicated to ending cervical cancer by educating about the connection between HPV and cancer, and the importance of prevention and early detection.
Where is it located?
What is your favorite thing about our community?
How else do you get involved with the community?
Team Maureen attends community events across the Cape to educate the public about HPV and its connection to cancer. We also have presentations for everyone from High Schoolers to Medical Professionals. Our presentation is free and we'll come anywhere we are invited to increase knowledge of these preventable cancers.
What is your favorite memory or story over the years involving you and your business?
One of my favorite things just happened this month. It took nearly a year to make our animated video short on HPV prevention. To finally see it in the movie theater on the big screen was incredible!
What advice would you give parents and caregivers in our community?
Don't hesitate to reach out for help and info when you need it.
Do you have any specials, events, or anything else taking place this upcoming year that our parents should know about?
Too many to list! Strike Out Cancer- our annual fundraiser at the Lanes in Mashpee, is March 26; Take the Shot Night basketball event in Falmouth-Jan 31/Mashpee on Feb 14; Cape Cod Marathon Relay teams next Fall (contact me if you want to run!)
Cape Cod Moms has been invited to participate complimentary as WALK LEADERS! If you are interested in joining our team for the day, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition (MBCC) is preparing for its 19th annual statewide, multi-sport event, Against the Tide, at DCR's Nickerson State Park in Brewster on August 18th. We are reaching out today to encourage mothers from across the state to join our Mothers for Breast Cancer Prevention team at this year's event.
Sadly, most of us know someone who has been touched by breast cancer - a friend, a sister, an aunt, a mother, a grandmother. Many of us at MBCC know first-hand how devastating a breast cancer diagnosis can be, and we are passionate about changing the legacy of breast cancer for future generations. MBCC is dedicated to preventing breast cancer through community education, research advocacy, and changes to public policy. We have been fortunate to work with so many women demanding greater protection of their children and grandchildren's health. The Mothers for Breast Cancer Prevention team is a great way to come together and lend support to a cause that impacts far too many Massachusetts families.
Against the Tide is an inspiring, family-friendly event that brings people from all walks of life together with one goal in mind: breast cancer prevention. With a 1/2-mile paddle board, 1-mile competitive swim, 1/2-mile or 1-mile recreational swims, 3-mile fitness walk, 5K or 10K runs, and 2-mile kayak, there is truly something for everyone! The event also offers an Aquathon "Splash and Dash" component, where participants "splash" in the competitive 1-mile swim and immediately "dash" in your choice of the 5K or 10K run. All swim, run, and Aquathon events feature chip timing.
Please join us on August 18! You can register to be part of our Mothers Team for Breast Cancer Prevention at www.firstgiving.com/team/376538. You can also start your own team or sign up as an individual at www.mbcc.org/swim. Your support will help to change the impact breast cancer will have on future generations.
