October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and the Pink Ribbon campaign is in full swing. The signs are everywhere – even the NFL teams are wearing pink shoes and pink gloves and pink armbands to remind people about breast cancer…..as if people need to be reminded about it.

Millions of people are going to be marching this month for BC awareness, and to raise money for research. So we’ve got all this awareness, and a ton of money pouring in for the fight against breast cancer, so how are we doing? Well….not as well as we should. In fact, we’re notĀ  really making any progress at all.

On this edition of Green Street, Patti and Doug talk with authorĀ  Samantha King about her new book – and now movie! – Pink Ribbons, Inc.
