Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Hundreds of New Yorkers wearing pink hard hats and pink shirts form a pink ribbon in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month in New York on Oct. 7, 2014.

When the clock strikes 12 a.m. on Oct. 1, social media turns pink. As do grocery store shelves. Doughnuts don pink icing and deeper pink sprinkles, yogurt lids blush from their refrigerated perches, and skyscrapers in major cities become bathed in rosy light. Even chicken buckets at one time changed colors for October.

This month belongs to pink — and breast cancer awareness.
