COME JOIN ME AT THE IN LIVING PINK GALA – FRIDAY MAY 8, 2015
April 22, 2015
PLEASE JOIN ME IN HONORING MY DEAR FRIEND KRISTEN
AND SUPPORT YOUNG WOMEN AFFECTED BY BREAST CANCER
As many of you know, the Young Survival Coalition is an organization near and dear to my heart. What many of you may not know is that young women can and do get breast cancer. This is something I learned the hard way. My close friend, Kristen Martinez, lost her 5 year battle with breast cancer at the very young age of 36. I miss her dearly. Kristen has inspired me since the first day I met her. She was full of love and courage and taught me that you must enjoy every moment life has to offer.
This year it would mean the world to me to have you all be part of the In Living Pink Gala. So please join me on May 8 to honor my dear friend Kristen Martinez. The night will include great music, open bar, delicious food, a fun crowd and the opportunity to support a great cause. Don’t miss it!

Here is a little background information about the YSC, for those who are new to my blog!
Young Survival Coalition (YSC) is the premier organization dedicated to young women with breast cancer. Founded by three young survivors, YSC began as a grassroots organization to advocate on behalf of all young women diagnosed with breast cancer to increase their length and quality of life. YSC provides free resources, connections and educational materials so young women with breast cancer feel supported, empowered and hopeful. YSC seeks to educate and influence the medical, research and legislative communities to address breast cancer in young women, and to ensure that no young woman faces breast cancer alone. For more information, visit youngsurvival.org.
