This #WeWinWednesday we are highlighting Ann-Marie Appiah founder of a non-profit organization called “Painted Pink” a millennial breast cancer movement to educate, support and empower women.
This organization raises awareness about breast cancer and also raises funds for local cancer patients at Emory Winship Cancer Institute in Atlanta, GA. “Painted Pink” educates women about the benefits of organic products, nutrition, regular physical activity, breast health and healthy lifestyle choices.
Ann-Marie had her first lumpectomy at the age of 24 to remove a painful lump from her breast. That same year her aunt was diagnosed with breast cancer. Three years later Ann-Marie had her second lumpectomy. She realized the importance of knowing family medical history and making healthy lifestyle changes. For four years, Ann-Marie advocated for breast cancer awareness and raised 10K. Her main focus is to raise money for families with patients undergoing chemotherapy who do not have insurance and to support women during breast cancer rehab.
“Painted Pink’s” mission is to make a positive difference in the lives of women and girls by supporting and providing wellness and breast cancer programs that educate, empower and restore.
