Bright Pink®, a U.S.-based non-profit organization focused on prevention and early detection of breast and ovarian cancer in young women, has become the newest member of ThinkGenetic’s growing Advocacy Partner Program. This partnership will boost awareness of complimentary resources available from both organizations and further their parallel missions to help families. As part of the program, when friends of Bright Pink register at ThinkGenetic.com they earn ThinkPoints that can be donated to Bright Pink in the form of cash.
“Bright Pink does an amazing job of making educational materials on breast and ovarian cancer prevention and early detection specific to younger women and their medical professionals,” said ThinkGenetic President Len Barker. “I am excited to have such a passionate cancer prevention advocate as a ThinkGenetic Advocacy Partner.”
Bright Pink aims to reach the 52 million young women in the United States between the ages of 18 and 45 with innovative, life-saving breast and ovarian health programs, thereby empowering this and future generations of women to live healthier, happier, and longer lives.
“Bright Pink is proud to collaborate with ThinkGenetic in order to increase education and understanding about genetics and breast and ovarian cancer for women everywhere,” said Bright Pink CEO Katie Thiede. “Together, our aligned missions will greatly impact women’s lives by ensuring they have the knowledge and tools to know their personal genetic risk for breast and ovarian cancer through ThinkGenetic’s resources, as well as Bright Pink’s ExploreYourGenetics.org and AssessYourRisk.org.”
In addition to the announcement, ThinkGenetic will be highlighting breast and ovarian cancer utilizing Bright Pink resources in September (Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month) and October (Breast Cancer Awareness Month) as part of its ongoing commitment to increasing awareness of genetic conditions and partnering with patient advocates.
ThinkGenetic enters into Advocacy Partner agreements with organizations, support groups and charities to share information, increase public awareness of genetic conditions and provide trustworthy resources to those living with or caring for someone with a genetic disorder.
