The University of Chicago Medicine Comprehensive Cancer Center and the American Cancer Society are teaming up to raise awareness about breast cancer screening and early detection, and the need for increased research funding.

Throughout October—Breast Cancer Awareness Month—Pink: Powered by People will highlight patients, their support teams, and the physicians and scientists at the forefront of cancer care and research.

People power the pink: loving, supporting, and caring for each other through the breast cancer journey; preventing, detecting and treating breast cancer; improving access to care; discovering new and revolutionary treatments; and raising awareness and funds.
