Probably because breast cancer is more prominent in women and pink is the "traditional" favorite color for females.

How can cancer develop in really healthy people taking good care of themselves? A heavy smoker can develop lung cancer because of harmful chemicals overtime to his lungs. But sometimes, lung cancer can develop in a nonsmoker's lung. Or breast cancer can develop in a healthy woman's body.

My grandma that is 71 just got diagnosed with it two weeks ago. She came to our house and my mom is with her as she just got surgery today. Luckily we live in Minnesota and have the best hospital in the world. :p

Actually cancerous cells are destroyed in your own body everyday. I think it is around once every 90 minutes an abnormal cell is destroyed by your immune system. It's currently unclear why some people are able to successfully prevent those cells from multiplying at a rate greater than destruction (cancer) and others are not.

It's also important to remember men are also affected by breast cancer. 1 in 1,000 men will be affected as well, so this is not only a female problem, though it is much more prevalent.
