A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.Cynthia’s Journey — The Founding of EmPOWERment In PINK
— John 13:34 (NIV)
Cynthia Sanders-Simpson, two time breast cancer survivor, founded EmPOWERment In PINK in October, 2014 as a way to encourage and emPOWER cancer patients, survivors and their families. The acts of kindness and support from Dr. Bebb, MD, FACS (WSA), and Dr. Kays, DMD, MD, FACS (NHRMC) and their medical staff is what pulled Cynthia through her cancer not once, but twice. She saw how her battles not only affected her, but her family and friends who sacrificed so much to support her during these trying times. Being able to share her testimony and seeing how it impacted people, it became her mission to give back to as many people, what was given to her when she needed it the most.
EmPOWERment In PINK foundation, realizes that cancer does not discriminate. On any given day, your life and those around you can change with a cancer diagnosis. Having someone to embrace and care for you while sharing their own first-hand experience with a patient, their family and friends is priceless.
Cynthia represents the true meaning of survivor. She has embraced and accepted that she has overcome more than most people will ever go through in a lifetime. She knows she has a purpose to fulfill and she is determined to do so with the vision from The Most High God.
