ABC News is going pink for October to raise awareness about breast cancer, a disease that affects one in eight American women. Throughout the month, we'll bring you the information you need to protect yourself, like the latest screening recommendations and signs and symptoms to look out for. We'll also outline the risk factors for breast cancer, some of which are modifiable. Armed with the facts, you can take our pledge to know your risk and get the appropriate screening tests for you.

So go pink with us throughout October and take our pledge to learn the facts about breast cancer and start a conversation about breast health. Information is our best weapon against breast cancer.
