BREAST CANCER HAS affected the lives
of millions of families (see the article on
page 69). The only way to fight it is
through awareness, research and treatment.
This research helps save lives, and one day
may stamp out breast cancer for good.
The Pink Ribbons Project (pinkribbons.
org) was started in 1995 by two sisters,
Susan Rafte and Jane Weiner, after Rafte was
diagnosed with the disease. The project
grew tremendously and raised awareness of
breast cancer, as well as significant funding
for research, medication and care. Today,
many businesses offer pink-themed products to promote Breast Cancer Awareness
Month in October.
