Consumers should visit Pink Together from September 19 through April 14 and results will be announced on Mother’s Day!

Don’t forget the 2011 Pink Together Survivor Ambassadors will be sharing their stories on both the Pink Together website and YouTube Channel.

Right before we moved away, my neighbor was diagnosed with breast cancer. Thankfully, she is ok now! But still…
Also, my great grandmother died from breast cancer. I am ALL about spreading the word!
I know a lot of people who know people who were affected who were just in their 30s. It's a horrible disease!!
My grandmother had breast cancer about 8 years ago, and it has made me more aware of the dangers of not getting checked regularly. I remind all my friends and family the importance of a doctor's exam.

I know alot of friends whos mom or grandma has been affected. I hate seeing them in pain!
My grandmother just went into remission from Breast Cancer. It is a a very near and dear to my heart cause..
I learned that there are a ton of women diagnosed in their early thirties and that women should be screened with mammograms earlier than when they are to prevent the spread of this cancer and catch it in earlier stages.

We are luck that breast cancer does not run in our family, but other cancers do. I donate door prizes to our local Susan G. Komen events to help out because you never know when it will happen to someone you know or love.
I learned that they give people money who have cancer.
I have been affected, for the fact that my fiance's mother was diagnosed with breast cancer 8 years ago. She did win her battle, after two times around…she is in remission now. This heightened my awareness of it, and how dangerous it can be. I now donate to the cause, and walk for Susan G. Komen campaign each year in Chicago…my fiance's mother and I make it our annual ladies trip. It's the least I can do to show my support for her and her battle.

I think everyone is affected in one way or another. No one directly around me has ever had it but I do know the scares and the pain it can bring to families. I know that just knowing how many people it affects each year is scary when I think about my daughter.
I am a 7 1/2 year B.C. Survivor, so it has touched me personally! Thank you so much for doing this giveaway & for the chance to win!!

I have worked with several ladies that have had breast cancer and it touches my heart to see what they have to go through! Both of these women were strong and never gave up!

I have 2 wonderful friends that have fought breast cancer…
A friend of mine fought breast cancer. it definitly brings things into perspective.
I am touched by all the women who have fought breast cancer as they have gone through so much to help prevent other women from going through the same through clinical trials and much more.

I found out this year that my favorite high school French teacher is a breast cancer survivor. *Thanks* for the giveaway!
I am touched as I see all the survivors of breast cancer and the families and friends affected by this. Everyday I pray that medicine finds a way to eliminate this cancer. I saw on the news about a pill recently developed that showed promise for this so maybe that miracle is very close.

I feel like so many people have been affected by breas cancer, in one way or another. I have a good friend who underwent a double mastectomy and is now doing well. I think she worries that the cancer will come back, though. It's wonderful to see that Pink Together provides a community where those affected can get together and work for a cure.
So many people have suffered, some lost while others have survived. My awareness was seriously heightened when 2 classmates of my children lost their mothers.
