Think Pink and hold on…
For your kid’s birthday balloons
Love floats towards you
Think Pink … remember
A Breast exam reminder
Two hearts linked as one
Since the fall of 1991, when the Susan G. Komen Foundation gave out pink ribbons at the NYC race for breast cancer survivors, the color pink and related items have symbolized the battle against this insidious killer. In 1992, the pink ribbon was adopted as the official symbol of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. In our lifetime, most of us will either know directly or indirectly someone with breast cancer or some form of cancer, or experience it ourselves. With social action/support, education, and shared information on causes/preventive care, we can make a difference and save lives. Think Pink and then go beyond it by taking action for the cause. You may also join in the facebook pledge effort. PLEDGE: Turn Facebook Pink October 21-27
“Most breast cancer-related deaths can be prevented through simple and painless preventive measures. A late diagnosis can result in more serious, long-term consequences.” Olympia Snowe
Think Pink working out…
Skip strawberry shakes for two
Rise and bloom anew
Think Pink … manage weight
Trade fairy cake icing for
Tutus, ballet shoes
According to American Cancer Society’s (ACS) statistics, we are on a long road to conquering breast cancer. In 2012, they estimate about 226,870 new cases of invasive breast cancer in women; about 63,300 new cases of carcinoma in situ (CIS) will be found (CIS is non-invasive and is the earliest form of breast cancer); and about 39,510 deaths from breast cancer(women). Our collective action will help keep efforts and hope for a cure alive. We can join Komen.org, Breast Cancer Action(BCAction), the efforts behind Global Hijab Day, ACS, Causes.com, and many, many individuals and organizations to support, take action, and bring awareness to the subject.
