The Pink Power Mom Program, now in its 7th year, announced the call for this year’s nominations starting on Mother’s Day, May 12. Every year, Kids II recognizes and rewards eight women for their fight against breast cancer and honors these incredible women as Pink Power Moms. The Pink Power Moms are selected due to the inspiration they give their families, friends, and others battling breast cancer, as well as because of their resilient spirit and perseverance in the face of adversity.
Since 2006, the Pink Power Mom program has made a difference by supporting deserving moms who are breast cancer survivors and their charities throughout the U.S. The program currently boasts a total of 48 women and more than 55 charities throughout the nation, all of whom have inspired and empowered people in their communities. By thinking globally and acting locally, the program has created a compassionate network of resources for women and families affected by breast cancer.
The Pink Power Mom program was created to join the fight against breast cancer by honoring and supporting women who have overcome the disease and are helping others through charitable work in their neighborhoods. Each of the eight women selected as Pink Power Mom receives $5,000 for the breast cancer charity of her choice as well as a weekend including an educational forum to bond and learn how to enhance their community efforts. Each mom also receives a legacy donation of $1,000 each year for the next four years.
Friends and families are invited to nominate a mom who has been an inspiration throughout her battle with cancer. The program is also open to self-nominations from those who believe they should be a Pink Power Mom. Submissions are now open and will be accepted through June 30.
