Pink Wings For Breast Cancer
My name is Courtney Lercara-Zinszer and I am a 2 time Breast Cancer Survivor. I was diagnosed with breast cancer for the first time at the age of 33 and again at 35. Breast Cancer does not run in my family, and I should not have been at risk for this terrible disease that hits one in 8 women. I am now committed to doing something about this disease. I have participated in 8 Breast Cancer 3-Day events since 1999, walking 60 miles from Santa Barbara to Malibu, Boca Raton to Miami, Enumclaw to Seattle, Los Angeles 3-Day, San Diego 3-Day and most recently- Michigan 3-Day. Family members, including my husband, mother, sisters and brother-in-law walked along side me, (my husband and brother-in-law both lost their mothers to Breast Cancer). We participate annually in the the Revlon Run/Walk for Breast Cancer, the Los Angeles Take-A-Hike, and the Pacific Palisades Relay for Life. On September 17, 2006, we had 13 family members participating in our first Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in Portland, Oregon. I am also a Reach to Recovery volunteer with the American Cancer Society. Pink Wings began as a dream to do something positive to help bring an end to breast cancer. My sisters and I wore Pink Wings on our Breast Cancer 3-Day walks and were known as the Angel Sisters. I felt this would be a great name for a company trying to raise awareness and funds for Breast Cancer. Thank you for visiting our site.
