See What This NFL Player Did to Combat Breast Cancer

If you watch NFL football, you'll notice the League goes to great lengths to support October as Breast Cancer Awareness month.

But one player with the Pittsburgh Steelers took it a step further. According to The Root, DeAngelo Williams recently lost his mother to breast cancer. To honor his mother, Williams is paying for 53 mammograms through his charity, the DeAngelo Williams Foundation. 

Here at The Pink Event, we love spotlighting these incredible acts of charities because we care about women's issues. In fact, breast cancer has been a signature issue The Pink Event has highlighted since our first women-focused expo. 
Next year for for The Pink Event® 2016we will team up with breast cancer charity For 3 Sisters, Inc., and domestic violence organization House of Ruth Maryland, Inc., as our event's official charity partners. Learn more about that here.

Make Most of Ovarian Awareness Cancer Month by Tuning into Your Body

If you didn't know, September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness month. Ovarian cancer is a tricky and dangerous disease as there is no real clear diagnosis test, which means that women have to be in tune with their bodies to know the symptoms.

According to WESA FM, those signs include abdominal bloating, feeling full, and needing to urinate more frequently. Ovarian cancer also has a genetic link like breast cancer, which makes it important for women to know their family histories. Among the most important actions is to talk with your gynecologist or women's care doctor regularly to know the risks and what to look for.

The Power of Kindness! How Community Helped Homeless Mom of 3 Battling Breast Cancer

Courtesy of Fox 2 News
Okay just a warning, but this might make you tear up. We here at The Pink Event® are in love with the Detroit community that responded after Fox 2 News ran a tragic story about Simone Hearn--who at the time was homeless, had three children, and was dealing with stage 3 breast cancer. Two weeks after Hearn's story aired, Fox 2 News received so much support that they were able to find Hearn and her children an affordable place to live.

See the Screening Method That's Catching Breast Cancer More than Mammographies

We here with The Pink Event® love technology and science. After all, medical advances help us get closer to a lasting medical cure for breast cancer. In addition to shining a hot pink spotlight on female entrepreneurship,  The Pink Event cares very passionately about breast cancer awareness and education.

So we really enjoyed this recent piece in The Huffington Post about a new type of breast cancer screening called digital breast tomosynthesis. This is a 3-D screening method that a new medical study says is better at detecting breast cancer tumors than mammographies and is also less painful. Additionally, women are exposed to less radiation in the screening process. 

Read more about this new advancement in the story and check out this video the article had that gives a better idea of technology at its finest!

Woman Throws Good-Bye Boobs Party

This light-hearted effort in dealing with a heavy subject made us chuckle. A British radio and TV presenter, who faced a high likelihood of having breast cancer, did something a little different in preparation for a preventive double mastectomy surgery.

The Pink Event® 2015 is a big proponent of breast cancer awareness. In fact, we are giving 20% of all ticket sales to our 2015 Charity Partner, For 3 Sister, Inc. a nonprofit organization that provides support and resources to breast cancer patients and their families.
