KGUN 9 News Anchor Stella Inger, along with 94.9 MIXfm's Mrs. Grant, and 106.3 The Groove's Leslie Lois have joined forces in the fight against breast cancer because they know nearly everyone has been touched by breast cancer in some way.

Professor Mary Theresa Rickard, Chief Radiologist at Sydney Breast Clinic says the risks associated with density fall second only to those due to known gene mutations. We know that the American Cancer Society is the leader in the fight to end breast cancer. An estimated 252,710 woman and 4,610 men in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer.
