Review Pink Warrior Angels on Great Nonprofits

Julie Moser, Co-Founder

Oct. 3, 2013 was a very emotional morning as we prepared for my husbands 3rd deployment to Afghanistan. When I got out of the shower I saw a faint brown line just under my left breast. After multiple test over the next few weeks, it was confirmed that I had stage 2 breast cancer at age 39.  Oct 28, 2013 I began my battle with breast cancer.  The cost, literally and figuratively, still affects me and my family. There were many days during my breast cancer treatment that I felt alone. I felt there was no one that understood what I was going through. I continued to stay strong but found many days/nights when I was not strong. I learned it was ok not to be strong. I had friends that did not know what to do or say to me. I did have some friends that sent care packages, cards in the mail and blankets that were handmade and prayed over. Having cancer is a humbling experience. I appreciate the little things and small moments now, and I’ve learned to slow down. On bad days, I remind myself that I’m still here and still breathing, and that my family’s here and tomorrow is another day.  You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have. have.

Jennifer Reynolds, Co-Founder

I was diagnosed with breast cancer 3 days after my 2-year wedding anniversary at the age of 33. It was devastating news at such a young age and my whole entire life flipped upside down. Though my husband and family were an amazing support system…I felt incredibly alone. Everything was happening so fast and looking back I realized I really never had anyone to turn to who truly understood my struggles. It wasn’t until after I was done with all my treatments and surgeries, that I realized how important it was to find a support system, but more importantly to be that support for other women. I started writing in my blog, reliving my past struggles and talking about my current struggles with PTSD and depression. So many women started to reach out to me and I began to become that support for newly diagnosed survivors all over the country. It brings joy to my heart to know that I have helped just one person. I enjoy sharing my very honest experience with others and have built some amazing bonds throughout this journey. I always tell women, I am an open book, and I welcome you to ask me anything you would like. Most importantly, I want women to know that YOU ARE NOT ALONE. You can and will get through this. Believe in yourself. As hard as the last 2 years have been, I can honestly tell you that I appreciate this life so much more than I ever did before and for that I am thankful.
