National Breast Cancer Awareness Month


Breast Cancer Ribbon

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. During this month, pink becomes more than the traditional color for girls. It becomes the color of support and impact.

Corporations churn out pink ribbon products – paper, cell phone cases, yogurt and more to help raise funds for the battle against breast cancer.

Many national and local breast cancer awareness events, walks and races take center stage. If you haven’t made an impact yet, there’s still time to go pink.
