Do you know someone affected by breast cancer in some way? Maybe a relative battled and lost their fight with breast cancer? Or a friend, acquaintance, colleague, someone you know has been affected by breast cancer at sometime in their life? Maybe you know someone whose mother, sister, grandmother, father, brother or son among the 2.5 million survivors of breast cancer who walk and work in America everyday. All of us have a connection to the battle to find a cure for breast cancer through someone we know, have met or whose life has been permanently extinguished or scarred by breast cancer.

On October 1, 2009 Ask.com and Susan G. Komen partnered together to hold the “Homepage Takeover” day. A single day event devoted to allowing Americans with a connection to the battle to eliminate breast cancer to create a tribute to someone living with breast cancer, a person who lost their battle with breast cancer or a survivor of breast cancer and post it on Ask.com for all to read and pay tribute to. The 13,000 participants in this one day event were honoured on Saturday in the NASCAR race being held at Lowe’s Motor Speedway by having the names of the 13,000 individuals they paid tribute too on October 1st added to the pink No 96 race car of Bobby Labonte.

We can defeat breast cancer by coming together and working toward the common goal of eradicating breast cancer from the lives of those we love. Ask.com, part of the seventh largest Internet property on Earth, and their 192 million monthly partners invite Americans to join Ask.com and the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure Series in the fight to end breast cancer.

Throughout the month of October Ask.com will host the Ask.com Search for the Cure program, a program designed to allow interested individuals to participate in the battle to end breast cancer by answering a few questions concerning breast health and adopting a special homepage skin. Ask.com will donate up to $100,000 to the fight to eliminate breast cancer in partnership with concerned individuals who take part in the program from September 13 to October 13, 2009 and will continue to invest up to $1 million in the Search for the Cure Program and support of the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure Series through until December 31, 2010.

If you want to pay tribute to those affected by breast cancer you can take part in the Search for the Cure program by heading to Ask.com’s homepage or at www.ask.com/cure. Working together hand in hand we can positively affect the lives of millions of Americans who will become affected by breast cancer in the years to come. Join the fight today!

    After Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James’ cancer scare, I believe that there will be increasing awareness on all forms of cancer.
