Just a reminder that we are still thinking pink

Did you know...
Wearing ribbons as a sign of awareness began during the Iranian hostage crisis in 1979. The ribbons were yellow. The pink ribbon, which has become the symbol for Breast Cancer Awareness was first used in the 1990's, when wearing ribbons first started as a growing trend. The Susan G. Komen Foundation handed out pink ribbons to recognize breast cancer survivors at the Komen New York City Race For The Cure in 1991. The pink ribbon was chosen because pink is the color for health, and represents femininity.
The pink ribbon represents the strength of women around the world who have battled breast cancer as a show of solidarity in helping to find a cure for the disease. It is also worn to encourage yearly breast exams for early detection.
