Think Pink is a community effort to promote breast cancer awareness. Our efforts culminate every year during Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October with Think Pink Day. The day is filled with activities to raise awareness of the importance of early detection in the fight against breast cancer, including giving away “Think Pink” bags. Bags include educational materials and other items to help us all remember the importance of early detection are distributed throughout the communities of Northern California.
Nor-Cal Think Pink is a community effort to promote breast cancer awareness. Early detection is the best defense against breast cancer – when caught and treated early, breast cancer has a 98% cure rate. It is our hope that through advocacy and outreach education with our surrounding Northern California communities (Shasta, Siskiyou, Modoc, Tehama, and Trinity), women will recognize the importance of annual mammograms, monthly breast self exams, and other early detection tools. We invite you to join us in our mission by supporting Think Pink and helping to spread the word about the importance of early detection.
The NorCal Think Pink website is at http://www.norcalthinkpink.org/. There is a wealth of knowledge on the many ways to get involved in our organization and upcoming events for the culminating month of October.
