2011 Pink Together Campaign Awareness and Giveaway!

I have joined the 2011 Pink Together campaign! Please take a few moments out of your time and join the cause too! I used to work at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and I have to say that year I worked there was the most inspiring year of my life! Cancer patients teach something about life that you cannot gain from books, the teach you LIFE and IT'S WORTH! And how to appreciate every moment of the day. They teach you HOPE, their ability to fight this disease head on and fight to live, is inspirational! If you ever get a chance, to see that side of the Cancer Battle, I hope you are open to its teachings! 

Find hope. Be inspired. Know you are not alone. Join the 2011 Pink Together™ campaign – now in its fifth year of celebrating hope – by visiting to connect with a unique online community of people who have been touched by breast cancer and share a passion for the cause. Individually we are strong, but together we are stronger.

Here is how you can help:
  • Visit to share your personal story and messages of hope and read about others’ personal journeys. To encourage personal connections, General Mills will donate $1 to the Komen organization for each Message of Hope that is sent to someone who has shared their story on (up to $25,000) during October. This is in addition to a $2 million donation General Mills is making to the Komen organization.
  • This year, for the first time in its five-year history, at consumers can choose how $1 million of this donation will be shared between two important Komen programs: the Treatment and Assistance Program, which assists women in securing care they otherwise may not be able to afford, and Prevention Research, which helps unlock the keys to preventing breast cancer. Visit from September 19, 2011 through April 14, 2012 to make your choice. Results will be announced on Mother’s Day 2012 – Sunday, May 13.
  • Meet the 2011 Pink Together Survivor Ambassadors, and hear their amazing stories of courage and survival on and the Pink Together YouTube Channel.
  • General Mills will also be turning the packaging of participating products pink in recognition of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month this October.

  4. My grandmother lost her fight against breast cancer before I was born. Although she isn't here with me, her legacy lives in all the women in my family.

  5. Breast cancer is definitely in my family. Both my mother and maternal grandmother had breast cancer. The possibility for me to get breast cancer is more real than I care to think about

  6. I have a family friend whose mom passed away of breast cancer when she was only 11 years old. It was hard for her to watch her mother die of breast cancer at that age, but now her and all of her sisters are very proactive about their health, and even though they are only in their twenties, they already make sure to get yearly mammograms.
