Think Pink: First-Hand Experience And Pink Products Raise Breast Cancer Awareness Among Our Members

   By drodriguez  Jul 17, 2011

The CDC reports that excluding non-melanoma skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer affecting women today.  Unfortunately, for too many of us, support of breast cancer awareness and research has become a part of our lives because we or someone close to us was diagnosed with the disease.

A recent SheSpeaks poll found that more than 50 percent of us are now supporters of breast cancer awareness and research after having experienced the disease ourselves or knowing someone that has it.

And affirming of the power of advertising, more than 45 percent of our members say they have supported breast cancer awareness and research after seeing products to purchase that support the cause.

From buckets of fried chicken to pink ribbon t-shirts for your dog, virtually anything you can think of on the market turns pink in October (Breast Cancer Awareness Month) as a way to show a company’s support of the cause.

Do you know someone who has been affected by breast cancer?

Tell us how you support breast cancer awareness and research!
