Annual program honors eight moms and breast cancer survivors making a difference.
The Kids II Foundation’s Pink Power Mom Network has named eight breast cancer survivors from the United States and Canada as the 2014 Pink Power Moms. The awardees, all breast cancer survivors, were selected for their focus on community and compassion to support patients and their families, in addition to excelling in their most important role – being a mom.
The moms were chosen from hundreds of heartfelt nominations submitted from across the United States and, for the first time, Canada. Now in its seventh year, Pink Power Mom is a nonprofit that annually honors eight remarkable women who have used their breast cancer fight as a catalyst to make a difference in the breast cancer community by founding and/or supporting local and global initiatives. Each mom will receive $9,000 for her charity of choice, allowing them to continue serving as community activists, sources of inspiration and premier patient advocates.
Established by the Kids II Foundation, Pink Power Mom has become an instrumental lifetime resource to network members, their families and the charities the Pink Power Moms have created or supported through this unique program. The program’s executive director, Heidi Floyd, said, “Pink Power Moms has become a strong network for survivor-led empowerment. The network’s pay-it-forward approach empowers moms to meet unaddressed needs in their communities.”
The Pink Power Mom Network, created to be a support network for moms on a breast cancer journey, includes authors, speakers, and tireless advocates. Pink Power Moms are selected by employees of Kids II and an advisory community of fellow survivors based on their community work and steadfast commitment to the cause.
