Breast Cancer Awareness month might have become ground zero for some heated debates in recent years, but we can’t deny the benefit of all that ubiquitous pink-colored coverage. Just look at Good Morning America’s Amy Robach, who underwent her first mammogram last month, on-air, for a segment promoting awareness. She admitted that she had to be talked into “demystifying” the procedure by her co-host Robin Roberts, who is herself a breast cancer survivor.
“Like so many women, I just kept putting it off,” Ms. Robach said today, after announcing the test had come back positive.
I was also told this, for every person who has cancer, at least 15 lives are saved because people around them become vigilant. They go to their doctors, they get checked.
