Click Away Cancer

Popular site puts survivor stories on center stage

Basingstoke, Hamsphire, October 1, 2007 – With thousands of campaigns kicking off around the world to raise awareness for Breast Cancer this month, Internet Based Moms is ramping up the fundraising efforts it hosts year-round. The program that began four years ago consists of three components; the distribution of digital pink ribbons, the publishing of the personal stories of members who have battled breast cancer and by linking to businesses who donate a portion of proceeds to breast cancer research.

“As a site that markets directly to a powerful and growing segment of women, we felt that it was important to support a year round fundraising effort to eradicate this insidious disease that has affects us all,” explains Mila Sidman, owner of Internet Based Moms, a resource site for work at home mothers “Almost every woman has a personal breast cancer story whether it is their own or that of a friend or family member. Statistics show that those of us who have not been personally affected yet, eventually will.”

The premise of the Internet Based Moms campaign is the featured stories provide a personal connection to help encourage those who have yet to be personally affected by breast cancer to become involved. By keeping participation in the effort as easy as clicking a mouse, the hope is to draw more people to contribute to raising awareness and funds for the cause.

“Most women who have dealt with breast cancer are fully aware and actively fundraise for the cause. Our hope is that by putting together stories from survivors and those who have lost loved ones, that we will draw in those who might not have had a close encounter with breast cancer to act too,” says Sidman.
