Breast cancer is #unacceptable.

Did you know that 1 in 8 women in the U.S. will develop breast cancer at some point in their lifetime. 1 in 8! In fact, someone in the U.S. is diagnosed with breast cancer every 2 minutes. And too often, we lose someone we love to the disease – 4 people, every hour of every day. That’s unacceptable! Susan G. Komen is committed to saving lives from breast cancer. Who is the one person in your life that you would do anything in the world to protect from this deadly disease? Who’s your one?
