Think Pink Rocks: In 2004, at age 36, Stephanie Robin, a Boca Raton mother of two small children, was diagnosed with stage II breast cancer. She tested positive for the Breast Cancer Gene (BRCA) and underwent a double mastectomy with reconstruction, a total hysterectomy and months of chemotherapy. The cancer returned to her lungs and is stage IV; she is receiving monthly treatment at Memorial Sloan-Kettering and the tumors have decreased in size by 90%. She and her friends Elizabeth Weprin, Kathy Fleishman and Amy Seidman, working with Steve Rifkind and SRC Records/Universal, have organized Think Pink Rocks to raise awareness of breast cancer prevention and treatment and raise funds for research. All donations to THINK PINK ROCKS will benefit 501 (c) (3) charitable organizations. Beneficiaries are: Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, New York; BRCH Women's Center for Breast Care; The American Cancer Society / Making Strides Against Breast Cancer; Reach Global / Jacob International; The Florida Breast Cancer Foundation; The H.O.P.E. Project; University of Miami Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center. To learn more visit www.ThinkPinkRocks.com.
