This awareness is represented by a pink ribbon and pink items.
The Pink Ribbon is recognized as a symbol of support for breast cancer issues, treatment and especially for finding a cure. More importantly, the key motivational spirit behind the Pink Ribbon movement, is to make every woman and adolescent girl of all age groups and nationalities AWARE of the importance of breast health and screening.
Breast diseases are very common. Most of us have come across a friend, a work colleague or a family member who has been affected by breast cancer. Perhaps, early detection could have saved our loved ones. By wearing a Pink Ribbon, you may just have reminded a woman to schedule a mammogram that she may have been putting off, or even to do a self breast examination which many women neglect to do.
Please help spread the awareness!
