Breast Cancer is a horrible disease we all hope to find a cure for in our lifetime. The chance of a woman having invasive breast cancer some time during her life is a little less than one in eight.
The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence says one in every three women will experience some form of domestic violence in her lifetime. The number for Native American Indian women and women of color is higher almost 1 in 2 women (half!).
Which one gets more media coverage; the pink ribbon or the purple ribbon? Domestic Violence Awareness Month just came and went rather quietly in October. Both are deadly to women. Both are very real threats that need to be addressed. Why not promote awareness of both?!
