I am currently serving on the board of Pink Initiative.
Who we are: Pink Initiative is a collection of wedding industry professionals and private donors dedicated to funding awareness, outreach, education and research for breast cancer.
Why: Breast cancer affects one in eight women in her lifetime. We’re helping because we can. Breast cancer survivor Tina Koral says it best in her memoir If I Just Breathe:
“The photographs from my wedding day show a joyful young couple, visibly excited to start a new life together. The promise of a happy home full of children shone in our eyes. The thrill of that day, of marrying my childhood love in a city filled with romance, will stay with me forever. What I did not know at the time was that along with something old, new, borrowed and blue, I carried a seven centimeter, rapidly growing mass of malignant cells in my breast. I was twenty-nine years old.”
