Breast cancer survivors from nearly 50 countries around the globe were honored at the Avon Global Breast Cancer Survivors Day Celebration in New York City, which is the capstone event for the annual Avon Walk Around the World for Breast Cancer series. All the women wear the Connection Ribbon, a special pink ribbon that symbolizes their shared hope and solidarity. During the year, each of the survivors traveled to another country to attend the local Avon Walk Around the World event, presenting the ribbon to the honored breast cancer survivor in that country.
