Did you make it to the PINK PARTY?

What a blast! We laughed. We cried. We played. We announced!

And we honored, educated and celebrated strong fire wives giving cancer a big fight!

  • A special thank you to all of our sponsors! MN8FoxFire, Mia at Foreignchic.com, and PhoenixOutfitters.com
  • And a big warm thank you to Cindy El from Fire Fighter Cancer Foundation for sharing a video with us here.

Sharing Their Stories

From the bottom of our hearts, the biggest thank you goes to those survivors and everyone who did interviews from our Sisterhood. Putting a voice to these stories certainly is touching lives. We already have news of wives making appointments with their doctors for check ups. Way to go ladies for sharing and changing lives! More hugs and love could not have been shown when our very own fire fighter wives, who either had or are battling cancer right now, shared their stories in person, LIVE!

Here are a couple of their interviews done earlier in the week on our blog. Operation Keep Them Bouncing, and Surviving Breast-Cancer-Choosing-To-Be-Proactive  written by Ashley Testerman and Jennifer Edwards.

  • All the videos we shared from survivors like Wife Cancer Fighter Christine Pabst, plus, are here at WifeOnFire’s Channel.

Ever heard of Angelina Jolie’s brave choice in preventing breast cancer? Now there is this, very highly controversial, very courageous way. Expect an email and links coming in the Sisterhood for a very moving video on preventative elective mastectomy coming in a couple weeks, as we walk 3 of our very own Fire Wives through this process.

You Can See The Heart Of This Group Right On Their Faces!
