posted by:


Well February is 1/2 way over and I am finally getting the Feb. newsletter out. Pink Wings has been very busy this month. We exhibited at a booth at the Salt Lake Gift Show and are hoping you will be able to find our products in Utah gift shops in the near future. Last weekend, we had a booth at the 1st FORCE conference in Tampa Bay, FL. This was an amazing conference with speakers from all over the country, as well as Canada. The conference was targeted at BRCA 1 and BRCA 2 gene mutation carriers, ( I am BRCA 2). Dr. Susan Love spoke on Saturday evening and had many promising things to say about a future without breast cancer. Thanks Sue Friedman- for putting on such a memorable event! For more info on FORCE- click on links or upcoming events on the Pink Wings website. Next weekend (Feb. 24-26) I head to Denver for the 6th Annual Young Survivor Conference. This will be my 3rd year in a row attending and exhibiting at this conference. If you have not already registered, it is not too late. Go to upcoming events on the pink wings site to get more info. Scholarships are available to help with registration fees and travel costs. Pink Wings proudly sent in money for a scholarship this month. Hope to see you there!
