Breast cancer affects one in every eight women in the U.S.

Starting Monday, Oct. 9, FOX40 is honoring those patients and their fight in our special series called Pink Week.

We’ll be sharing stories from people all across our region who have been diagnosed with the deadly disease — from women who had to care for their kids while facing cancer, to a man who never thought the disease would affect him.

You can show your support by adding our Pink Week frame to your Facebook profile photo. Visit our Facebook page to learn more.
