Study raises questions on early-state breast cancer treatment

As many as 60,000 American women each year are told they have a very early stage of breast cancer - Stage 0, as it is commonly known - a possible precursor to what could be a deadly tumor. And almost every one of the women has either a lumpectomy or a mastectomy, and often a double mastectomy, removing a healthy breast as well.

Showing support with a ribbon

After a family member was diagnosed with breast cancer, Marciel Johnston of Modesto decided to show her support by cutting off her long hair and having a ribbon cut into the back, just at her neck. After she sent a photo to her sons, they told her the ribbon was supposed to be pink, so Johnston had the hair that makes up the ribbon dyed the traditional color of the breast cancer awareness icon.
