Bright Pink

Who they are: When it comes to breast and ovarian cancers, family history, breast density and ethnicity can play a role in diagnosis. Bright Pink helps high-risk women in their 20s and 30s stay informed and make healthy choices to lower their risk of both cancers. The organization emphasizes a proactive approach, connecting young women with information and resources, including regular clinical breast exams starting at age 20 and annual mammograms for women over 40.

What you can do: Volunteer for one of Bright Pink’s medical, fundraising or outreach groups. Opportunities include hosting a support group, distributing educational pamphlets and planning awareness events.
