Brothers and sisters should all think Pink...

Breast cancer is a devastating disease that affects about one in eight women during their lives, and can also impact and end the lives of men, as all my close friends and family-members are sadly aware. My father-in-law, the late great William Kiefert, died at the age of 65 due to cancer that began as breast cancer. This month, individuals, communities and organizations throughout the United States are trying to raise awareness, encourage regular mammograms to increase the likelihood of life-saving early detection, and to collect funds to escalate the battle against breast cancer.

Several great/resourceful stories have hit my inbox on the subject, and I encourage you to take a look to figure out how you, your company and/or your community can contribute to this fight, which unfortunately is likely to touch us all.
