The Best Way to Fight Breast Cancer is Early Detection

Our pink breast cancer ribbon pin shows your support in the 
fight against breast cancer and is a universal symbol of 
breast cancer awareness and sends the life-saving message of 
early detection to those around you.

It will get everyone's attention, and is a great conversation 
piece to educate and empower women. And it's small and dis-
creet enough to be worn on a man's collar, or as a tie tack. 
Order now for only $2.49 (or just $1.99 each if you order
two or more) and a portion of your purchase will be directly
donated to fund Breast Cancer Research. Visit:
