October has been recognized as Breast Cancer Awareness Month since 1985. The annual awareness event was first organized by the American Cancer Society along with a pharma company. Events are typically planned throughout the month to promote annual mammograms and regular breast self-examinations as well as raise funds for cancer research and prevention. The pink awareness ribbon is a prominent symbol of Breast Cancer Awareness and is worn by those who have survived and to honor loved ones.
