Go Pink this October

Shine from Yahoo! is honoring National Breast Cancer Awareness Month with an online hub devoted to sharing & comparing the personal insights of thousands of individuals with a personal stake in battling the disease. All this month, put on your virtual pink ribbon by clicking over to Shine’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month 2010 page.

Members of the Associated Content community have contributed their stories and expertise to the Shine hub:
  • Breast cancer survivor Coral Levang explains how the diagnosis that changed her life became her "biggest and best teacher."
  • Patricia Sicilia shares her own story of survival, and reflects on the myriad ways it has shaped her identity over the years.
  • Featured Health & Wellness Contributors R. Elizabeth C. Kitchen, Marie-Luise Blue and Debra Cornelius share some important breast cancer prevention tips relevant to women of all ages.
Wondering how can you contribute?

Check your assignment desk! Our Content Managers will be releasing a variety of Featured Contributor assignments pertaining to breast cancer awareness in the coming weeks. If you have a story that you'd like to share, you don't need to wait for an assignment. Email with the details and we'll connect you with an editor.

Tell Shine why you're turning pink this month! For each person who updates their pink ribbon status on Yahoo! Shine and Yahoo! Pulse this month, Yahoo! will donate $1 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation up to $50,000. More than 17,000 people, including Yahoo! CEO and breast cancer survivor Carol Bartz, have shared their inspiration so far.

Thank you for helping us raise awareness and battle breast cancer, a devastating disease that affects more than one million women every year.
