I bet you know someone with breast cancer. Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer that affects women. Over 180,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer each year. Through early detection and diagnosis, women have a greater chance of survival than ever before, but early detection is the key and the key to early detection is awareness.

Strength in Pink is a documentary film that will tell the stories of courageous women dealing with breast cancer through interviews with breast cancer survivors and those currently battling this common disease.

Strength in Pink will also highlight the efforts of individuals and organizations such as Breast Impressions, Inc. and sculptor Kendall Howerton who along with the help of Roller Derby girls are attempting to raise breast cancer awareness through art to women of all ages and walks of life.

The hardships, and challenges of women who have survived breast cancer and those facing the uncertain future of a recent diagnosis will also be explored and how the disease has affected their lives and the lives of their loved ones.

Strength in Pink began filming on April 21, 2009 at the Oklahoma State Capitol during the first annual Breast Cancer Awareness Day. The film is produced by Gang of Four Films in association with Breast Impressions, Inc. Donations are being accepted to fund the production through Breast Impressions, Inc.

Most breast cancer-related deaths can be prevented through simple and painless preventive measures. A late diagnosis can result in more serious, long-term consequences.
