Charlotte Haley, creator of the first “breast cancer ribbon”.

We celebrate the life of Charlotte Haley, creator of the first “breast cancer ribbon,” who died February 2, 2014 at the age of 91 at her home in Simi Valley, CA. 

You may recognize Charlotte Haley’s story from the documentary film Pink Ribbons, Inc. in which she tells the often-overlooked tale of the first breast cancer ribbon, which was not pink in color but peach.

In Memoriam: Charlotte Haley, Creator of the First (Peach) Breast Cancer Ribbon

Charlotte Haley’s ribbons were a call to action: a demand for prevention of this disease and greater accountability.
