SEE HOW MODERN TECHNOLOGY IS CHANGING THE WAY FAMILIES AND FRIENDS SHOW SUPPORT FOR THEIR LOVED ONES AFFLICTED WITH BREAST CANCER.
BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH IS IN FULL SWING. IN THE WAKE OF THE GLOBAL PANDEMIC, MOST FUNDRAISING EVENTS HAVE CHANGED – EVENTS THAT SUPPORT CANCER RESEARCH ARE NO DIFFERENT.
Susan G. Komen® Race For The Cure Goes Virtual.
The annual Race for the Cure benefiting the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation has announced that it will go virtual for the first time in its 38 year history. As many companies and organizations have started using technology like Zoom and Microsoft Teams to meet social distancing guidelines, Susan G. Komen has also taken this measure.
The organization is promoting a “walk or race where you are” model, where participants can walk or race from anywhere. If you want a sense of community, Susan G. Komen is encouraging participants to join a local Facebook group for the event.
Participants can also download the Race For The Cure App, which enables them to conduct their fundraising efforts and even connect their app to Google Fit, which tracks their race progress. Download the app today from the App Store or Google Play.
Technology is Changing Other Avenues of Support for Cancer Patients, Survivors & Families
While organizations like Susan G. Komen and the American Cancer Society offer events to aid in fundraising efforts, the personal side of supporting cancer patients is changing as well.
It’s common for family and friends to order flowers or cards of encouragement for loved ones suffering from breast cancer, but even this time-honored tradition has begun to modernize. Digital cards, online ordering and even delivery options have evolved to keep with the times.
Much of the technology advances are focused on supporting those afflicted with cancer. A new technology has recently been developed for those affected by cancer to be able to communicate and share their love with their inner circle, even from beyond the grave, in a more intimate and personalized way.

For those suffering from breast cancer – the future, at times, can feel bleak. The prospect of facing one’s own mortality and the “what happens when I’m gone” questions can make one feel isolated. Feeling that future events, holidays and milestones may be missed can be a painful experience.
CircleIt offers a groundbreaking solution by enabling the sending cards, flowers and messages to loved ones that can be delivered even after you’re gone. Much like Jane Karasin did for her son Joe – a letter expressing love and offering candid advice can be delivered to any future date you choose. Reminding your inner circle that they’re eternally loved is the greatest gift you can provide.
Families can also create and customize digital cards for those that have been stricken ill with breast cancer. Encouragement in a trying time is a blessing to most, and CircleIt provides a private and secure interface for you to connect with loved ones around the world and across generations.
