A NOTE FROM ANN MARIE AND FOUNDER
THE PINK RIBBON FOUNDATION
While pregnant with my little girl, my grandmother lost her battle with Breast Cancer. It is in my nature to want to see change, to find solutions, be a peacemaker and to promote mindfulness. My grandmother passed away when I was 5 months pregnant with my now near 22 year old daughter. While at the hospital during my grandmothers last days, I began to consider ways to honor my grandmother. I incorporated my natural instincts and without any foundation experience, I created, The Pink Ribbon Foundation.
In the following years we built an entire Mammography Center, A Breast Center Changing Room, Donated thousands of items to women, and men alike, needing anything that insurance would not provide. We provided thousands of bags of groceries to incredible people fighting the fight and hosted multiple events a year to raise money for The Pink Ribbon Foundation.
Today, I am a fighter too and grateful for early detection. I relish in knowing I have had a little to do with bringing other survivors to places they would not have been able to travel to, and continue to work behind the scenes always wanting to do more for anyone with a pink ribbon story to tell.
Sadly, the last two years have been extremely difficult for me and my family. I lost my devoted and loving mommy to cancer on July 11, 2020 and just a couple weeks ago, on September 29, 2022 her sister and my Aunt passed away after fighting gallbladder cancer for nearly one year.
I am asking anyone who stops on ANN MARIE Homepage and reads my note to take time, reflect and never give up. If you do not buy anything ANN MARIE, please consider making a donation to your local Pink Ribbon Foundation, now across the United States. We have a LOT of work to do and without each one of you, none of our hard work would have happened nor can continue to occur.
In loving memory of Mary K. Clark and Molly Clemons
Ann Marie Clark
