Pink is the New Orange!

Why has ORANGE Gecko gone PINK?
The "Pink for October" campaign is about blog and website owners showing their support for breast cancer awareness by turning our sites pink for the month of October. So, in honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I've gone P-I-N-K!

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women in the United States, aside from skin cancer. According to the American Cancer Society (ACS), an estimated 192,370 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed among women in the United States this year. An estimated 40,170 women are expected to die from the disease in 2009 alone. Today, there are about 2.5 million breast cancer survivors living in the United States.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month is dedicated to increasing awareness of the importance of early breast cancer detection. For more information, click here!
