It's hard to believe, but the pink ribbon
, the symbol of the hope and efforts of those who are working to find a cure for breast cancer, has been around for 25 years.
Though this coming October will mark the 25th anniversary of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month the foundation has taken an active role in researching new ways to prevent and cure the condition all year round.
In fact, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month has become an important part of the campaign against the disease, and has united many public service organizations, professional medical associations and government agencies so that they might work together to more effectively find a cure.
One of the main messages of the group is that women should be proactive about their breast health, and schedule annual mammograms.
Be sure to keep your eye out for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month events in your area, and sport your pink ribbon with pride on a daily basis!
