Pink Wings July Newsletter and Specials

Some exciting news…but also terrifying.  My family was contacted about doing a part in a documentary film called The Human Face of Big Data directed by filmmaker Sandy Smolan. They wanted to talk to a family who was impacted by BRCA gene testing. As many of you know, I am BRCA 2 positive …I have the gene mutation for Breast and Ovarian Cancer. I found this out after being diagnosed with breast cancer 2 times by the young age of 35. There had been no history of breast cancer in my family that I knew of. My youngest sister tested negative, but my other sister tested positive and had her breasts and ovaries removed in 2007 at the age of 39 (just like Angelina Jolie did this year).  I have 4 children, but only my oldest daughter, Sedona, is my biological child. My other children were adopted. Sedona is just 19 (she turns 20 next month), but has wanted to do gene testing ever since she turned 18.  The documentary follows our family for a day as we get together with my sister and her kids and then drive to Portland to meet with the genetics counselor for my daughter to do her testing. They film my daughter as she does the test and then film us leading a FORCE meeting (Facing Our Risk of Cancer Empowered).  The camera crew is also hoping to film Sedona as she gets her results. We had hoped the results would be in by last week, but it is going on week 4 and we still have not heard from the genetic counselor yet. The results should come in this week. Sedona and I wished on a wish bone (both with the same wish- that her BRCA gene test would come out negative), and we are asking for prayers and good thoughts from others. If her testing comes out positive- she will have many decisions to make in her young life about her future. If she tests negative- I will breathe a sigh of relief…as this is something that I have worried about passing on to her for over 15 years now. Hard to believe that I was tested when she was just 5-years-old, and next month she will turn 20 and will know her results of this test. I will send out more info about the documentary and her results as I get it.  To view some of the director’s amazing work go to: http://www.luminous-content.com/

Here are some photos from the filming. I felt a bit like a reality TV show…John and Kate Plus 8 or Keeping up with the Kardashians as the crew followed us around J

Sedona’s reading of choice as she awaits her BRCA gene testing- How to Cure Cancer

The following week, we drove the RV to Southern California with my kids for vacation. We spent time with friends at the beach, the pool, the lake and California Adventure Park.  While in L.A., my 11-year-old daughter Sienna decided to cut off her hair for Locks of Love again. Here are the adorable photos.

Mother’s Day is just over a week away.  Purchase something special from Pinkwings.com  We have over 200 different pink ribbon pins to choose from as well as beautiful sterling silver jewelry, pink ribbon leather wallets, clothing, hats and scarves. The What’s In Your Heart (Heart Pendant) and What’s In Your Soul (Circle Pendant) necklaces make a great Mother’s Day or Grad gift.

Our new Pink Wings Pink Ribbon V-Neck shirts are hot off the presses.  They are available in white or black. The shirts come with or without the word SURVIVOR going down the left hand side of the shirt, just beyond the pink ribbon design.  The cost is just $20 for White and $22 for Black. They come in sizes Small-3XL. These shirts run very true to size, if not a little big. They are not the typical fitted shirt and are more of a uni-sex fit. The V-neck is not too deep and the sleeves run a bit longer than the traditional V-neck, so it will cover your upper arms. The shirt is also nice and long. This is a soft, 100% cotton, pre-shrunk shirt.  The Pink Ribbon design is exclusive to Pink Wings. The back of the shirt is blank. You will LOVE our new shirt!!  This shirt is great for teams walking a pink ribbon event- 3 Day Walk, Avon Walk for Breast Cancer, Relay for Life, Making Strides, etc. Bulk pricing is available on orders of 12 or more. I am also able to add team names to the back of the shirt for an added cost.  We can also do custom shirts for your team, organization or event. Just email Courtney at info@pinkwings.com for more information and pricing.

Pink Wings April Newsletter and Specials

I hope everyone is having a fantastic spring.  My family and I have been enjoying time on the ski slopes together nearly every weekend. My young kids are also busy with dance competitions and soccer games. My oldest daughter is finishing up with her freshman year at the University of San Diego.  Time is flying by! It is hard to believe that she was just 3 years old when I was diagnosed with breast cancer for the first time.

The new pins are now in at Pink Wings. We have all pins in stock except for the Black Bust Pink Ribbon pin, which is sold out again. As the walk season begins, more orders are coming in for the Pink Wings Fundraising Kits

SKU #1270  and SKU# 1004 .

The Pins in Bulk (SKU #1285, and SKU #1329) are also great. You can mix and match the pins you purchase to maximize your fundraising. These are great items to sell when raising money for your upcoming events.  We also have tons of pink ribbon knee socks in stock. They are available in white, black, grey or pink and can be purchased at discount pricing when ordering in bulk. These are fantastic for walk teams, dance teams, cheerleaders, soccer, volleyball, soft ball and basketball teams!

We still have a few of the pink ribbon hoodies for sale in Pink.  I have just 5 left and they are all size small. I also have a few hoodies in Periwinkle Blue (sizes XL and 3XL only). The Periwinkle blue hoodies run big. We also have the 2-tone Zip hoodies available in all sizes (S-2XL). The Zip Hoodie runs small- so it is best to buy one size larger than you normally wear. I have 2 of the children’s hoodies left in size small only (it fits a girl size 3-4). Buys yours today!!

The Tye Dye Pink Ribbon Shirts in Pink and Black (SKU# 1681), the Camo Pink Ribbon shirt (SKU #1478), and the Faith Burn Out shirt (SKU# 1131) all continue to be big sellers.

We will have a new Pink Wings Pink Ribbon shirt available in May. It will come in Survivor with Pink Ribbon, or just Pink Ribbon. Colors available will be Black or White.

If your team is looking for cute pink ribbon shirts to wear at your event- I do bulk pricing on the Pink Wings shirts. Most come in sizes S-2XL and the camo comes up to a 3XL. I will also send you Pink Wings temporary tattoos for your team for each shirt ordered. Email me at info@pinkwings.com for more information and pricing.

Don’t forget to check out our new Co-Survivor Pink Ribbon pins. These are great for those that have supported a woman (or man) going through treatments for breast cancer. They come in 3 styles.   

Our butterfly ribbon pin now comes in 3 colors; pink, teal and purple.
