Program honors mothers who have fought breast cancer
Nov 15, 2011
A new program named Pink Power Mom by Bright Starts helps women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer at a young age and have children, and who have battled and won against the disease. The program will honor eight women by donating to their charity of choice to help in the fight against breast cancer.
"Our national program gives these extraordinary women a chance to create a legacy in the communities where they live and beyond," said Miles Bohannan, vice president of marketing for Kids II, the parent company of Bright Starts. "We're proud to help these women expand their influence by establishing a platform for them to make connections with other survivors and get support for charities that meet their specific needs. Together with these women, we have been afforded the opportunity to make a difference across the nation."
According to the American Cancer Society, this disease is the second leading cause of cancer-related death, following only lung cancer. However, the death rate has been decreasing since 1990 due to advancements in research and breast cancer breakthrough news. There are currently 2.5 million survivors in the U.S.
