Later, it may be one of life’s hurdles. Either way, as Ann Murray-Paige would often say, “Don’t worry, you got this.”

Ann Murray-Paige founded Project Pink when she was diagnosed with breast cancer nearly a decade ago. In that time, she co-created & produced the highly acclaimed documentary, “The Breast Cancer Diaries” along with two books, “Words to Live By” and “Pink Tips”. All three serve to provide hope and understanding to young women with breast cancer.
