My great aunt died from breast cancer two years ago. According to my family, she didn't know. This ignorance caused her death. By being more aware of breast cancer, you can prevent death. Many women think they won't be able to get it. But it's time to take that invincible armor off and go see the doctor for an evaluation to ease any suspicion. Breast cancer is one of the leading causes of female deaths. The population of women is quickly decreasing because of it.

The American Cancer Society says that about 40,000 people die each year because of breast cancer. Breast cancer awareness will help so many people. You can help save a life, whether it is yourself or someone else, by wearing or just simply THINKING PINK!
