Power of Pink
Power of Pink! is an educational forum to raise awareness about women and breast cancer. The Power of Pink! Luncheon, began 20 years ago as the Jan Moore Memorial Lecture. Ms. Moore lost her battle to breast cancer in 1993. Her courage and determination won the hearts of her friends, family, and hospital leaders, and as a result those who knew her wanted to help others know the facts about breast cancer. What began as a handful of women discussing breast cancer over sack lunches in the hall of CHI St. Luke's Health Memorial has grown to a luncheon that caters to almost 800 women from the community.
This year Power of Pink will once again feature Heidi Marble. Heidi is a 15 year survivor of inflammatory breast cancer. She has spoken to thousands of people, blending her sense of humor with her message of beating the odds. Heidi will be joined by her sister, Jen Curfman, also a breast cancer survivor. After their fight with cancer, they learned that they both carry the BRCA2 Breast Cancer Gene, putting them both and possibly their children at greater risk. Attendees should prepare for a wild ride of emotions as they laugh, cry and celebrate life.
