Take 5 minutes to learn your personal cancer risk and get simple steps to take charge of your breast and ovarian health.  


Your health is in your hands.

Bright Pink is an organization like no other that seeks to advance the conversation around breast and ovarian cancer beyond awareness to action. It is built on a foundation of focusing on health, not cancer.

Today, Bright Pink is launching a new and improved version of their digital quiz, Assess Your Risk, to better empower all women to learn their breast and ovarian cancer risk and manage their health proactively. While Breast Cancer Awareness Month is an excellent time to talk about breast health, Bright Pink is fiercely committed 365 days a year to ensuring women can be their own best health advocates. They have updated their flagship program, Assess Your Risk, to do just that.

Already assessed your risk? Believe it or not, you should assess your risk annually as your breast and ovarian cancer risk can change over time and the medical community is always learning about new factors that affect our risk.

Bright Pink

 You may have picked out your recipes and finalized your strategy to dodge an awkward conversation with Uncle Harold, but are you prepared to tackle family health history this holiday season?

This conversation should definitely be in your holiday game plan. Over the coming month, Bright Pink will help by breaking down the why, when and how to collect this information. Let's Get Started.

Family matters.
Up to 25% of breast and ovarian cancers are familial or hereditary, so your family health history can act as a powerful roadmap for you and your healthcare provider. When you know your risk, you can manage it proactively! Read on.

Know what to ask. 
Both sides of the family are equally important in determining your personal level of risk. While breast and ovarian cancer history is important, other types of cancer can also be indicators of an inherited genetic risk—so capture everything you can. This worksheet can be your guide.

Collect, then assess. 
Once you’ve learned all you can, it’s time to put that knowledge to work. Visit AssessYourRisk.org to complete our digital quiz and receive a personalized report on your baseline risk for breast and ovarian cancer.

And remember, things change! Collect your family health history and assess your risk annually. Make it a Holiday family tradition!
