Pink Wings September 2006 Breast Cancer Awareness Newsletter

posted by:

September is almost 1/2 way over and I am finally getting the newsletter out. Life has been busy…but always good!

I completed my Breast Cancer 3-Day walk in Michigan last month. It was my 8th walk and it was beautiful! We had great weather..and best of all NO HILLS….and no blisters!! If you are thinking about participating in a 3-Day Walk- this is a great one for you first timers.

I walked for the first time without my sisters or husband.  It is difficult to say I was walking alone- as there were nearly 3,000 other walkers out there. It is different to do an event by yourself. I met some wonderful people and had a great time and was met by my entire family, including cousins at the finish line. It is always such an accomplishment to get another one of the 3-Days under my belt.

I never thought I could complete even one just 8 years ago. Now the difficult decision to make- which 3-Day walk city and Avon walk will I participate in next year?  I would love to do Chicago!

Breast Cancer Awareness Month is just weeks away. Please get your orders in so that you will have them in time to wear through the entire month of October. Please remember to get your mammograms!!

We have LOTS of new items in- including over 20 new pink ribbon pins. If you haven’t been to the site lately- now is a great time to check out

When going to the site, please click on the link for CUT FOR LOVE. This is an event I am doing to try to raise $25,000 for breast cancer research as a way to give back to celebrate my 10 years as a cancer survivor. I will be cutting off 10″ of my hair and donating it to Locks Of Love. 100% of the money raised will go to the cause, as myself and others have been donating time and resources to put the event on. Please see if this is an event you can get involved in. I am trying to get participants from all over the country!

Pink Wings is traveling around a little these next two months:

I will be in Portland at the Race For the Cure Health Expo on Sept. 14th and 15th.

I will be in Tampa Bay, Florida at the Moffitt Cancer Center Breast Cancer Conference September 30.

I will also have a booth at the Los Angeles Women Of Color Luncheon on Sept. 30.

I will be at my new hometown “Walk for the Cause” event (in Albany, OR) on Oct. 7th.

I will be in Harrisburg, PA on Oct. 11th  at the Penn. Breast Cancer Conference.

Please feel free to come by and say “Hi” if we are in your neighborhood.

OK- onto the September Specials.

We are sending out one of our new, awesome, Pink Wings Pink Ribbon bandanas with every state/city pin ordered at retail pricing ($15 each).
These bandanas are great for all you 3-Day and Avon walkers out there.
They are great for dunking and wearing around your neck, and the color won’t come off on your clothes. They are also great for covering your head if you are bald from chemo.

We are also offering a free 2006 “One Step Closer To A Cure” pink ribbon pin with the purchase of every bucket hat.

Have a great day, and remember to stop and smell the roses!


P.S. Please email me if you no longer want to receive these newsletters and I will take you off the list.
