Did you know that one in three women will get cancer in her lifetime? That statistic is one that the American Cancer Society wants to make people aware of, but also wants to help women know and understand that there are actions that can be done to change it. The "Choose You" movement has been created by the American Cancer Society to help raise awareness about the actions that women can take to help change this statistic in a positive way.
To help mark the first anniversary of the "Choose You" movement, the American Cancer Society has teamed up with Hilary Swank as an executive producer for a documentary film that tells the emotional stories of three women and their journey of putting their health first.
