Watch olympic champion Mary Lou Retton speak about Frosted Pink with a Twist.

The American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) joined forces with five other national cancer organizations in a landmark television event and multimedia education campaign-€”-Frosted Pink with a Twist--€”that focused on educating viewers about cancers that primarily affect women, such as cervical, endometrial, ovarian, vaginal, and vulvar cancers. The initiative sought to communicate an important message to all American women: be your own best advocate by learning as much as you can about cancer.
