The Pink Ladies came together through shared experiences and deep concern for women who are facing a frightening future with breast cancer. Cheri received help from Albie Aware when she had no idea where to turn and had already lost a dear friend to the disease. She then met Pam when they competed in the first Survivor of the Year contest. Deborah, Pam’s sister and campaign manager, has a mother in law who has survived breast cancer twice, 25 years apart. Along the way, Deborah met Patty, her back yard neighbor, and sadly learned that Patty had lost a sister to breast cancer. While helping her sister in that process, Patty saw first-hand that it takes a village to battle breast cancer. Once the team was forming, Patty reached out to her friend Sonya who works exclusively with women and wanted to help create resources for those in immediate need of assistance. Sonya then invited Robin to come aboard knowing that she would gladly offer her experience to this cause. We have a great time together and plan to offer events that spread both fun and the crucial message that there is a great deal of work to be done right in our own community. Go Team!
