Did you know that one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime? The best defense against breast cancer is early detection. When breast cancer is detected in the early, localized stage, the five-year survival rate is 98 percent.* We're teaming up with P&G to ask everyone – men and women – to help spread the word abut the importance of early detection. Join us for the #PGBestDefense Twitter Party on Tuesday October 22 at 3pm ET with special guest, Corey Wootton, defensive end for the Chicago Bears. We'll be giving away some fabulous prizes every ten minutes!
