Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM) was first observed in the United States in 1985. With one in 8 women at risk for this disease, most people have been affected by its proliferation. From the beginning, the focus of the initiative was to aggressively combat breast cancer by encouraging women to have mammograms. Although this procedure does not prevent breast cancer, it does allow for early detection. When cancer is identified early on, it is more successfully treated and can be stopped from spreading to other areas of the body.
In 1993 the Breast Cancer Research Foundation officially adopted the pink ribbon as the symbol for breast cancer awareness. But the color pink has taken on a life far exceeding that of the ribbon – buildings around the world are bathed in pink light; landmarks like Niagara Falls also showcase pink illumination. Many products, from clothing to jewelry to sports gear, unveil pink editions of their most popular selling brands.
