How Giving Helps

My mother had breast cancer and hoped a mastectomy would save her, but unfortunately, that wasn’t the case. She was just 33 years old when she passed away, leaving behind a husband and three small children. My brother was five. My sister was eight, and I was only seven..

I later survived my own fight with breast cancer. What was important to me is that both of our children enjoy being children. I don’t ever want my daughter to walk into her parents’ bedroom, as I did not long after my mother’s passing, and find their father kneeling in their mother’s closet, weeping into her clothes.

When you give, this is the impact you have on the life of someone else. Your donation helps to give hope and rest to children and families. It means allowing little girls and boys a chance to bond with their mothers, to run to them with every problem—imagined or real—and be comforted. It means love.

Thank You for Your Support.

Why I Volunteer

I suppose the main reason I volunteer is because I love helping people.  I've chosen to volunteer for Pink Lemonade because we don't only help people fighting cancer but also their families.  I've lost loved ones to cancer so I've seen how it can affect the entire family.  And I've also had friend beat it.  Providing a meal or picking weeds in a yard might be a small task for me but can have a huge impact on a family fighting the fight.
