Women Reduce Cancer Risk, Lose Weight with alli

More than four million Americans have lost weight with alli during the past year. Many of those success stories come from women like Cheryl Hartvigse from Columbia, S.C. who recognize that losing weight can improve their health and may reduce their breast cancer risk.

"Two of my family members have been diagnosed with breast cancer. As a pharmacist and hormone counselor, I know that obesity most definitely plays a role in breast cancer and that knowledge played a big part in my decision to lose 30 pounds," explained Hartvigse. "I've nearly reached my weight loss goal and alli's support system has really helped me lose the pounds. I feel 20 years younger and so much better about myself. Plus, I've reduced my risk of becoming another breast cancer statistic."

The special pink alli product is available at major retailers nationwide while supplies last. More information can be found at http://www.alli.com. Breast cancer patients can talk to peer counselors at the YourShoes 24/7 support center by calling 1-800-221-2141. Interpreters are available in more than 150 languages.
