On Monday night this week, the Empire State Building was lit up in pink to honor Evelyn Lauder. If you've ever worn a pink ribbon, she has influenced you. And she has left behind a research foundation that has benefited many breast cancer patients.

1992, Evelyn Lauder and Alexandra Penney began giving away pink ribbons and breast self-exam cards. Ever since then, those ribbons have shown up everywhere. But she did so much more than just pass out trinkets and sell cosmetics. A breast cancer survivor herself, she decided to do something about finding a cure.

Smoke Out a Bad Habit This Thursday
November 17 is the 36th Great American Smokeout. If you or someone you care about uses tobacco, this is the day to crush it out. Smoking can raise your risk for many health problems, only one of which is breast cancer. Nicotine appears to be really bad for women's health, because it affects your hormone levels. Get help to stop smoking - you'll be glad when you start experiencing the benefits!
