Many breast cancer patients find themselves exhausted, overwhelmed, or feeling alone, describing their experience as a series of "good days" and "bad days." That's why Marie Claire has teamed up with Ford's Warriors in Pink (opens in new tab) initiative to share the More Good Days (opens in new tab) project, designed to do exactly what it says: give breast cancer warriors more good days.
But patients aren't the only ones who deserve to be treated to something special–fighting for the cause deserves a reward, too. So from now until October 31st, we're calling for submissions from you, our readers, to tell us about someone in your life who's fighting bravely—and deserves a day off.
In a short essay (between 200 and 700 words), tell us:
While we wish we could provide a prize for all nominees, we'll be offering 25 winners a "good day" experience–including a $200 gift card to a local spa and a gift bag complete with Ford Warriors in Pink accessories and apparel, valued at $100.
To enter, please complete the form here (opens in new tab). Winners will be chosen by Marie Claire in partnership with Ford Warriors in Pink. Good luck!
