Pink ribbon

-October is the month of the pink ribbon.
-What's the pink ribbon?
-The pink ribbon is the symbol of breast cancer awareness.
This month is dedicated for that campaign.
-I have a coworker who has died of breast cancer.
She was still very young.
-I hear that one out of 20 Japanese woman dies of breast cancer.
It is the most common cause of death among Japanese women
in their 20s up to 50s.
-Is that so?
-In most cases the cancer is getting worse very fast
within a younger patient.
However early detection and rapid cure brings about a very high
cure rate.
They say it's most important to get regular check ups.
-I know.
