Event description

Description

Breast Cancer is a cause that is near and dear to our hearts. At the age of 17 years old, our founder Avril S. Lewis, lost her mother, Gloria J. Hayes, to breast cancer; on January 2, 1981. At the age of 41, Gloria left behind a husband and two teenage children. Even though Avril was a teenager, she can distinctly remember her mother going through treatment and not only the physical strain, but the financial strain. The cost of the treatment and medication was extremely high. A small bottle of medicine, at that time, was $250.00. Even with good health insurance, there were still out of pocket expenses that incurred as a family. As the primary income source of our household, her father had to do major overtime just to make sure their family had the finances needed for her mother’s treatment.

Since her mother passed away, there have been and there continue to be, many women diagnosed with this dreadful disease. As our founder thinks back to the loss or her mother, at such an influential age, she can remember saying “One day I am going to be able to be a help to women who are going through the treatment and healing process of breast cancer”. The Pretty in Pink Affair, is a non-profit fundraiser for women or men who suffer from Breast Cancer. Each year we select several individuals to honor, because we understand the physical and emotional struggles that they have had to endure.
