Pink Friday started almost 5 years ago. A few random people wore Pink on a Friday and I saw an opportunity to make some friends. It went strong for 3-ish years with every second Friday of the Month. I would rally my coworkers to show up in their best Pink duds. It started as just a reason to have fun and get to know everyone.
Then shit got real...
My dear friend Gabe was diagnosed with breast cancer and Pink Friday turned into something more. I had a reason to do this. If what we were doing on Pink Friday's even brought the slightest smile to my friends face it was worth the kitten wrangling it took to get everyone dressed up in Pink.
Long story short Gabe had her treatment, is in remission, and kicking but in her profession. Helping people everyday during the toughest parts of their life, she is a true inspiration.

So now I want to make Pink Friday something bigger. I want to raise money for a worthy cause Gabe supports and help others that may need it.
Please join me EVERY Friday in October and wear Pink and be awesome and know you're making someone out there smile by your actions and sometimes a smile is enough to lift their spirits.
I've made an exciting commitment to become a YSC Champion with my campaign: Pink Friday. The money I raise will go to support Young Survival Coalition (YSC), the premier non-profit organization dedicated to supporting and educating young women affected by breast cancer.
Each year, more than 13,000 young women 40 and under are diagnosed with breast cancer. I am making the commitment to help raise money to support these women, so they can face breast cancer feeling empowered.
I know I can do it with donations from people like you. How will your contribution help?
$25 could fund YSC materials at three healthcare providers’ offices.
$100 could provide a Newly Diagnosed Navigator to six women when they need it most.
$250 could allow us to train four survivors to serve as peer supporters.
$500 could fund a Young Empowered Survivor (YES) educational program.
$1,200 could pay for two women to travel to our annual conference for young women affected by breast cancer.
Any amount helps!
Thank you, in advance, for your support. I truly appreciate your generosity.
