WHY IT MATTERS
1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.
1 in 67 will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer.
Just being a woman puts you at risk.
WHAT BRIGHT PINK IS DOING ABOUT CANCER
Bright Pink is a national nonprofit that empowers young women to reduce their risk of breast and ovarian cancer and detect these diseases early while they’re still treatable. Our free educational programs make prevention and early detection a persistent and positive part of their lives.
THE POWER OF BEING PROACTIVE
At 23, Bright Pink founder Lindsay Avner became the youngest woman at the time to undergo a risk-reducing double mastectomy. With a long family history of breast and ovarian cancer and genetic testing that showed she was herself at high risk, Lindsay vowed to take proactive measures.
During this experience, she was confronted by a lack of resources to help young women take control of their breast and ovarian health. In 2007, she started Bright Pink to educate and inspire women to put awareness in action.
LET'S CHANGE THE ODDS
To date, Bright Pink has helped 210,000+ women identify their cancer risk and empowered them with tools to reduce it. We’ve also taught 4,000 women’s health providers how to best identify and manage risk among their patients, thereby reaching 16 million patients with better breast and ovarian health care.
