IndySuperCure...Not Just Any Pink Saturday!

IndySuperCure is a special initiative set up by the super bowl to help scientists study normal breast tissue. The thing is though, in order to study normal breast tissue, said tissue has to be collected and stored in a tissue bank. Susan G Komen for the Cure has just such a bank. And IndySuperCure, taking place on Saturday, January 28, 2012 in Indianapolis, Indiana.  It is an initiative to help fund the collection of normal breast tissue from 700 women volunteers!
