Making Strides of Kansas City

Greater Kansas City Coalition of Labor Union Women (CLUW)

“Breast Cancer Be Aware” was a resolution adopted at the 19th Biennial CLUW Convention in 2017.

The CLUW Women’s Health and Wellness Committee wants women to know that 40% of women age 40 and over have dense breasts. Mammograms will miss more than 50% of cancers present in dense breasts. Some states, but not all, have laws requiring that women be notified if they have dense breasts so they can discuss additional screening options with their doctor.  Breast density is determined through a woman’s mammogram, but for women with dense breasts, additional screening tests such as ultrasound or MRI will substantially increase detection of cancer found at an early stage when it is most treatable and survivable. The Women’s Health and Wellness Committee urges women to ask if they have dense breasts when they get their mammogram results. www.cluw.org

More information is available at DenseBreast-info.org.

The fund's members of Greater Kansas City CLUW are raising will sustain critical research and provide services for people trying to cope with their breast cancer experience. Believe us, every dollar really does count, so we are asking you to please donate today.

Together, we can make a big difference in the fight against breast cancer.

Welcome to our Team Page. We've formed a team because this cause is important to us. We want to help. And walking and raising money in our local American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event is the best way we can do that. We all have different reasons for participating but we share a determination to help save lives from breast cancer.

There are so many ways that the money our team raises helps. It’s helping fund innovative research. It's providing free information for people dealing with the disease. It’s providing rides to treatment and places to stay for people who have to seek treatment far from home. In short, our money is helping save lives. Consider donating to our team and helping advance the cause.

How We Support the American Cancer Society

Of course we walk in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event. And we solicit donations from family, friends, and other supporters. But we also schedule fundraisers in lead-up to the big event. Bake-sales, car washes, and countless other types of events. And we promote those on social media, through Facebook and Twitter, by word of mouth, and through flyers at work and around the neighborhood. The success of fundraising events depends on two things - hard work and getting the word out. And we're out to do both. Keep an eye out for our fundraising events.

Join us. Donate today. Or walk with us.
