Pink Up- January Newsletter

It's time again to think Pink Up. Breast cancer is the second leading cancer killer in U.S. women. Take the time today and on the 12th of every month to do a self-exam.

In this month's pink up report we introduce you to Beth Brotherton, who learned the hard way breast cancer is not just a physical fight, but a mental one too. Brotherton was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer at the age of 34. In less than a year, she lost both breasts and the ability to ever have a second child. Five years later, though, Brotherton will turn 40, a celebration of life with those who mean the most.

To hear Brotherton's full story tune into The Breakfast Show and Heartland News at Five on Jan. 12, 2016. Tell your friends to sign up to receive this monthly newsletter to remind them to do their self-breast exam.
