Hi, I'm Dr. Marisa Weiss. I'm president and founder of Breastcancer.org.

I have a book called Taking Care of Your Girls', a breast health guide for girls, teens and in-betweens and also a book called Living Well Beyond Breast Cancer' after keeping it before the rest of your life begins. It's a guide and involves all kinds of programs with live and print media and have a blog on Think Pink, Live Green, how to reduce your risk with breast cancer. So I'm pleased to work with you today and share information about how to protect your life against the threat of breast cancer.
