Cancer Society Urges WI Women to Choose You

May 14, 2010

MADISON, Wisc. - Wisconsin women have been wearing pink for years to symbolize the fight against breast cancer, but now they are being asked to add blue to the palette as well. Blue is the color that symbolizes the new Choose You campaign aimed at making women in Wisconsin healthier and reducing their risk of all kinds of cancers.

Laurie Pagel, public relations manager for the American Cancer Society (ACS) in Wisconsin says women need to take better care of themselves.

"The focus is really to help inspire women to put their health first, and to help women in Wisconsin make healthy lifestyle choices."

The ACS has been successful helping women to associate the color pink with breast cancer and mammograms over the years, says Pagel, and the hope is the new campaign will have similar results to improve the overall health of women.

Living a healthier lifestyle can help fight many different types of cancer, she adds.

"There are many types of cancers that can also affect women, including colon, skin and cervical cancer, which are all preventable with screening."

One in three women, or approximately 34 million nationwide, will get cancer in their lifetimes. More information is available at www.ChooseYou.com.
