Here’s some more information from the Right Action for Women homepage:

“Today, more than 250,000 women under the age of 40 in the U.S. are breast cancer survivors, and I am lucky to be one of them. Recently, I underwent genetic testing and learned I have a mutation in the BRCA 1 gene, making me more susceptible to breast and ovarian cancer. My mother is also a breast cancer survivor. A family history of breast or ovarian cancer on either side of a family (Mother’s or Father’s side) can put someone at higher risk for developing the disease. Because of this, my doctor ordered a variety of screening tests which try to detect cancer in its earliest stages (when it is most treatable). One of these tests was a breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan, and it saved my life.

MRI is one of the breast screening tests recommended by the American Cancer Society for women at increased risk for breast cancer (MRI is not recommended as a screening tool for women at average risk for breast cancer). Unfortunately though, this service is not always covered by insurance and many women across the country cannot afford the high costs of a breast MRI. I hope through the creation of Right Action for Women we can provide aid to those individuals who are at increased risk for breast cancer and do not have insurance or the financial flexibility to cover the high costs associated with breast screenings.” –Christina Applegate

These are lovely, and for a very worthy cause! Here's hoping.
I liked them on FB, too. :)
This is wonderful - people sometimes talk about how much "fuss" is made over breast cancer awareness now (especially boys watching football players in pink), but when I think about how many advances have been made, and that now, if you're diagnosed with breast cancer, you're more likely to live, and live WITH your breasts, than any other outcome, I say bring on the pink! :)
