of $7,000 Raised
Julie Morgan

In October of 2011, I was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 37. It was devastating to me and my community. My friends and family wanted to show their support and love while I was going through treatment. I was pretty vocal from the outset of my diagnosis that I was not into the "pink ribbon culture". For years prior to my own diagnosis I voiced concerns about carcinogens being sold in the name of breast cancer,

A couple friends offered to walk in my name because they thought any money raised was a good thing. While I appreciated the support, I explained that raising money for just any organization was not where I wanted their efforts. I was frustrated because I knew that these pink ribbon events and purchases did more for companies bottom lines than for women with breast cancer. I wanted to scream "don't pink for me", but did know what to tell my loved ones.

I started a Don't Pink For Me fundraising page through Breast Cancer Action to do something that makes a difference for me and other women living with and at risk of breast cancer.

We are all aware of breast cancer! Please join me in supporting Breast Cancer Action and Don't Pink for Me!!

with love & gratitude,
