The idea began 25 years ago in the U.S., where more than 700,000 women have participated, and has spread to 24 other countries where chemotherapy is increasingly common. Argentina was the first Latin American nation to launch it, in 1999, and it has since grown to 100 sites in ten cities across the country.
