LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--1-800-Get-Thin has teamed up with the Lifetime Channel for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This initiative is designed to help stress the importance of early breast cancer detection by encouraging viewers to visit Lifetime’s website. Once on the site visitors can learn how to take action and help spread awareness locally, it gives support tips and inspirational cancer survivor stories. The site also features an online petition to protect breast cancer patients from “drive-through mastectomies.”
It’s a scary fact that breast cancer affects 1 in 8 women. It is important to remember that breast cancer can happen to you! During the month of October, Lifetime will feature a new original film “FIVE” which is an anthology of five short films directed by Jennifer Anniston, Alicia Keys, Demi Moore, Patty Jenkins and Penelope Spheeris. “Five” explores the impact of breast cancer on victim’s lives and how it affects their families and their friends. “FIVE” highlights the shared experiences that each of the characters endures from the moment of diagnosis, through an interconnected story arc that uses humor and drama to focus on the effects of breast cancer, the different stages of diagnosis have on relationships and the way women perceive themselves while searching for strength, comfort, medical breakthroughs and, ultimately, a cure. 1-800-Get-Thin and the Lifetime Channel encourage you. Get Informed. Get Involved.
