As Breast Cancer Awareness Month comes to a close, SFNS asked students at Florida International University how they participated.
“In the beginning of October, I reminded all my female family members to get mammograms,” said Magenta Thomas, an 18-year-old communications student. “I know how important it is to get checked and I wanted to make sure they remembered.”
Alexandra Bello, a 20-year-old business major, said that she bought a lotion that donated 100 percent of its profits to breast cancer research.
“It may not be much, but I feel like I did something positive,” said Bello.
“I always make sure to represent in anyway that I can. Like, with this breast cancer awareness shirt,” said Krystell Michel, a nursing major.
Marc Toussaint is a sports and fitness student.
“I love being active, so as soon as I saw that there was a breast cancer walk I decided to show my support for the cause,” Toussaint said. “It was really fun and nice to see so many people out there for such a good cause.”
