Who Started Pink Ribbon
The pink ribbon is an international symbol worn to increase breast cancer awareness, became very popular during the "New York Race for Survivors" in 1991 where the Susan G. Komen Foundation distributed pink ribbons to racers.
[ The following year the Pink ribbon became the official symbol of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month after Eveyln Lauder (Estee Lauder fame) and Alexandra Penny created ribbons for stores in New York City.
Since men get breast cancer too, the color blue was added to a pink ribbon by the John W. Nick Foundation in 1996.
The pink ribbon also represents hope for the future, support for the breast cancer movement and to promote unison with women who currently have breast cancer. ]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pink_ribbon
