More Pink For Your Green

Together, ABC7 and the American Cancer Society have been creating pink for 17 years. What does "more pink" mean?
  • It means that thanks in part to ABC7 and our team, there are 11 million breast cancer survivors alive today;

  • It means there's groundbreaking research happening as we speak all over New York and New Jersey thanks to funding by the American Cancer Society;

  • That local programs like "Look Good? Feel Better" can continue to help women learn make-up techniques to feel beautiful during treatment;

  • That thousands of American Cancer Society volunteers and staff are working with legislators to secure funding for life saving mammograms for all women regardless of their insurance status;

  • It means knowing you can ask a licensed professional any of your cancer questions 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.
