Why is pink the color of breast cancer awareness? The momentum around breast cancer awareness continued in the early 1990s, when Evelyn Lauder (of Estée Lauder) established the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and solidified the pink ribbon as a universal symbol for the disease. The rest, as they say, is (very pink, very sparkly) history.
What is the official breast cancer Day? National Mammography Day is a part of Breast Cancer Awareness month and is celebrated on the third Friday of October every year.
