The $109 pink Pocket Drive packs in 6GB of USB-connected storage and comes pre-loaded with music and videos from women musicians, including Joan Jett, Stefy, Toby Lightman, Megan McCauley, Stephanie McKay, Alana Davis, Andrea Rosario and Annie Stela, to help promote raise awareness of the disease and how it can be fought.
