Knott's Goes Pink For The Cure: Raising Funds for Susan G. Komen

The opinions in this article are my own. I do not work for, or with, any brand mentioned in this article, nor do I have any official relationship with them. I have a relationship with GigaSavvy, for whom I create original editorial content.

I don't often discuss health or other serious issues here on the blog.  I try to keep it light and fun mainly blogging about fashion, makeup and other fun lifestyle things.  Today I want share about a serious topic and health matter, but tackling it in a fun way.  OK so Breast Cancer is not something I usually discuss and you may be thinking how the heck am I going to make it sound fun!  Yeah, this post has not been something easy for me to write about.  Breast Cancer is one of those illnesses that has affected us all in some way, we probably all know some who has it.  I personally have had a 2nd cousin die from breast cancer many years ago and a friend from high school as well a few years ago.  This is such a tragic and destructive type of cancer, but I have learned from a few woman that its about how you react and live with the cancer that makes a difference.

Enjoying a fun day at Knott's for the Cure, love the beautiful flowers.
One person I have met that is a great example of this is Jaime Jenkins, a blogger I met from Orange County.  Last year she announced on her blog she was diagnosed with breast cancer, she has been going through her struggle with a smile and positive attitude.  She's always had that smile and perky personality, since the day I met her a few years ago before her diagnosis.  Every time I see her she has a smile and a big hug for everyone.  That is very admirable in my eyes, having a positive attitude and smile regardless of what she may be going through.  So where does the fun come in?  The fun comes from celebrating life and enjoying a laugh with family and friends.

For the second year Knott's Berry Farm has collaborated with the Susan G. Komen Foundation offering a special “Pink Ticket”, with a portion of proceeds benefiting Susan G. Komen Orange County. Also limited edition, specially designed “pink merchandise” is also available for sale at select locations in the park. These proceeds help fund breast health services and research and also help promote breast health awareness. You can participate from now until March 31, 2015.  What better way to show support, donate to a great cause and have a fun day with your family and friends.  Help Snoopy and the Peanuts gang beat their record from 2014, they raised almost $100,000 and hope to beat that in 2015. Here is what the money will go to and help women in need.
  • 75% of the funds raised for Susan G. Komen are used to provide local services throughout Orange County:
  • Breast cancer detection and treatment education
  • Information and support for breast cancer survivors and families
  • Funding for free mammograms for uninsured and underserved women
  • 25% of the funds raised for Susan G. Komen support national research to discover the cure for breast cancer.

I was invited to the media day and heard Jamie and other breast cancer survivors tell their stories during a breakfast at Knott's.  After the breakfast all the ladies headed to the roller coast Jaguar and took a ride together.  It was very emotional and inspiring to see them on the roller coaster smiling, laughing and riding with their hands flying in the air.  What a beautiful sight it was to see them enjoy life with their family and friends.
