In Hyattsville, several businesses are working to help raise awareness and support breast cancer research.

This month Giant has its weekly “Way to Buy, Get, Give…” promotion. At the Mall at Prince George’s you can pick up a free pink ribbon pin. Some stores at the mall like and are.

Other ways you can help include:

  • The National Breast Cancer Foundation, which was founded by Janelle Hail 30 years ago. She fulfilled her dream of helping others—in millions of ways. Donations to the NBCF’s Pink Ribbon Challenge go to programs that benefit women: namely free mammograms at hospitals, clinics, missions and mobile clinics.
  • The PA Breast Cancer Coalition works with a network of grassroots partners. “This elite group of volunteers helps to raise awareness and donations… in every corner of the state in every way imaginable,” said Pat Halpin-Murphy, president and founder of the coalition.
