During certain times of the year pink ribbons and messages of hope, cure and courage are posted in our supermarkets, athletic fields and doctors offices but breast cancer isn't just diagnosed in October and by no means is it a seasonal disease.  In the United States alone, one woman is diagnosed with breast cancer every three minutes.  We need to continually educate and empower women to make the right choices regarding risks, diagnosis, and treatment.  Here are your links to find the fashionista.
