"Knowledge is power."
Side-Out’s mission is not merely about fundraising; it is about educating.  We are here to support you as you educate yourself and your community about breast cancer.  There is great value in learning about prevention at a young age and then spreading the word to other students and community members.  Equally important are facts about breast cancer and how medicine approaches treatment for the disease.
Below are some resources to help you get started. Because we are such a small organization, some of the materials we share are provided by separate breast cancer organizations. They provide quality, up-to-date information.  We also created a short, basic list of breast cancer facts for easy referral.

 

If you are looking for informational booklets to share with your community, we recommend breastcancer.org.  They provide information about the disease and will send out a maximum of 100 copies; they just ask that you pay the shipping fee.  Breastcancer.org also has a thorough description of how to perform breast self exams.  While it’s not printer friendly, it is a useful link to share via e-mail and/or social media.
The Metastatic Breast Cancer Network (MBCN) is a great resource for information about metastatic (stage 4) breast cancer.  The Side-Out Protocol, the clinical trial funded by our events, focuses on helping patients with stage 4 breast cancer.
