Seven years ago today, June 8, 2009, my Aunt Robin passed away at 48 years old. She was the kindest, sweetest, and funniest woman who spent a good part of her adult life battling cancer. We don't know for sure, but can assume now, based upon testing results from others in the family, that she likely had a BRCA mutation. It was her battle that prompted me to consider my family history more critically when I had a scare three years ago. In the last seven years, there has been so much advancement in being proactive about breast and ovarian health and Bright Pink is a huge part of that movement. I became a Bright Pink Education Ambassador to help honor my amazing aunts and all they have fought in their own cancer battles by educating young women about their risk level and what they can do about it now. In addition to their life-saving workshops, Bright Pink also provides support to those wherever they are in a journey of being high risk and raises funds to help in the fight to eradicate breast and ovarian cancer. Please help me honor the women in my family who have battled these terrible diseases. Help save lives today by donating to this amazing organization!!
