"GREEN IS THE NEW PINK" is our theme this year! Knowing that environmental toxins are one of the leading causes of disease, cancer, birth defects, asthma, and reproductive harm, Beats for Boobs will help educate people on how to reduce exposure in their own lives and live at a higher level of health & wellness. The best cure for breast cancer is prevention.
