GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Remembering your exams is key to early detection and prevention We wear pink ribbons during October to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month and starting today, Panera Bread is combining the iconic symbol in a tasty treat to help the same great cause.

All month long, a portion of the proceeds from Pink Ribbon Bagel sales throughout the Triad will be donated to Earlier.org - Friends for an Earlier Breast Cancer Test. A special 100% day will be hosted on Friday, October 6, 2017, during which 100% of the proceeds from each bagel sold will benefit the cause.

Shaped in the form of the iconic pink ribbon, the Pink Ribbon Bagel features cherry chips, dried cranberries, vanilla, honey and brown sugar.
