We're on the front line of the war against breast cancer.
Not Just October, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, was created to expand the knowledge and resources available to breast cancer patients, survivors, and their families. We are dedicated to fostering a culture of encouragement, advocacy, and total support. Through the promotion of education and community engagement, we hope to improve the awareness around breast cancer and its affect on families around the world.
Lavar Jacobs founded the organization in memory of his mother, Kim Jacobs, who passed away in 2009 from breast cancer. His vision is to change the way that our communities think and talk about breast cancer and continue to stress the importance of both regular health screenings and self tests.
Through frequent community events and outreach programs, Not Just October continues to spread our message and garner support from people around the country. Whether supporters are donating a dollar or spending just an hour of their time helping to make a breast cancer patient's life just a little bit easier, their commitment is appreciated and helps to reinforce the ideals that Not Just October was founded upon. The organization continues to grow and gain more support across the nation, spreading the word that breast cancer is an issue worthy of attention all year around, not just in October.
