About Bright Pink
Bright Pink (www.bebrightpink.org) was founded by Lindsay Avner who, upon graduating from college, learned that she tested positive for a mutation on the BRCA1 gene, an inherited alteration in the gene that can carry with it up to an 85% increased risk of breast cancer. Vowing not to let the disease strike her, as it had three generations before her, she opted to have a bilateral prophylactic mastectomy, one of the youngest patients to opt for the procedure. Lindsay’s personal experience inspired her to create Bright Pink, a national non-profit organization that strives to enlighten and empower high risk, young women to take control of their breast and ovarian health by providing education, support and a sense of community for a better, brighter future.
