Stuff About Me:

It would mean alot to me if you would consider donating to Bright Pink, I am asking for your help in donating as little as $5 or as much as you want, because every little bit helps.

What is Bright Pink?

Bright Pink is an organization that focuses on knowledge and education for young women about their Breast & Ovarian Health.  It has been just over two years since my surgery and through that process, Bright Pink  became a HUGE part of my life, I couldn't have gone through this journey without the support of Bright Pink and all that they have to offer. As many of you know, in February 2014, I underwent a preventative double mastecomy in order to reduce my risk of developing Breast Cancer from 87% to less than 5%. It was one of the toughest decisions I have ever made, and the MOST paintful thing I have ever expereinced.

When I was going through my own decision process, I had reached out to several organizations for "Counseling" help or some type of support group for women like me, but was stunned at how little existed in the San Diego area  and at all. Most support groups were for women with or recovering from Breat Cancer, but the act of taking this leap to prevent Breast Cancer altogether was not as prevalent and/or supported quite yet. Because of my expereinces and what I saw as a need in our region, I really wanted to be able to help other women as they went through the same process I did, first finding out about the BRCA gene, testing for it, then deciding what to do about it!!!

Over the last two years I have had the opportunity to become a Support Ambassador for Bright Pink and meet some amazing women who have gone through this same journey or are just starting to navigate it. I have now transitioned into an Education Ambassador role for Bright Pink. As an Education Ambassador I will go to offices, sororities, schools, etc. and provide a presentation on Breast & Ovarioan Health.

Knowledge is Power!

So when you're donating, your money is going toward training people like myself all over the country to educate and support other women. Our goal is to educate as many women (and men) as possible.

Thank you for your donation,

Steph
