I have had some exciting opportunities along this cancer journey, but I’d have to say that one of my highlights was when I was chosen as a Kids II Pink Power Mom in 2010. Not only did they treat me and my husband Mike to a fabulous weekend in Atlanta and $5,000 to a charity of my choice; I met lifelong friends, with whom I felt an immediate connection. I was additionally blessed the following year to be a part of their fifth anniversary weekend. where I reunited with my friends and met Pink Power Moms from previous years, all who share the passion of helping fellow breast cancer survivors.

The Kids II Foundation, through its annual Pink Power Mom (PPM) weekend, honors sand celebrates the ongoing work of eight  breast cancer survivor moms and their philanthropic endeavors. The eight women selected as Pink Power Moms receive $5,000 for the breast cancer charity of her choice, as well as a weekend in Atlanta filled with pampering, educational forums and gifts. Each mom will also receive a legacy donation of $1,000 annually for four years thereafter for the breast cancer charity of her choice. Since its inception in 2006, the Pink Power Mom program has provided support to more than 55 breast cancer charities focusing on services, research, education and legal support.

Sponsored by Kids II, a global leader of baby and infant products, the PPM  program includes women from all over the country who are involved in life-changing charities. Their forward-facing mission is to provide support,educational guidance and a cohesive network of fellow PPMs in order to enhance and develop their own nonprofits. Because of their passion to help make a difference in their communities, Kids II has made a commitment to sharing their stories with the world. The program is funded by The Kids II Bright Starts Pretty in Pink Collection.
