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.
