50 SHADES OF
Dr. Jacqueline Walters, a 2x breast cancer survivor.
In 2004, Dr. Jacqueline Walters found herself in a patient role instead of the doctor role, when she received her first breast cancer diagnosis. After receiving her second diagnosis in 2008, she underwent a double mastectomy.
She knew, as a physician, how a positive attitude impacts how well you respond to treatment. Many of the women she met during treatment did not share the same philosophy. She was heartbroken to see their hope and spirit so low.
This discovery motivated her to share her story, time, and resources to help individuals going through the breast cancer fight. Dr. Walters quickly started counseling, sending care packages, and providing spiritual support for women in need. In 2013 she formally launched her 50 Shades of Pink Foundation to provide support for the mind, body, and spirit of the breast cancer WARRIOR.
50 Shades of Pink Foundation is a 501(c) (3), national non-profit organization. It was established in 2013 by Dr. Jacqueline Walters, a 2x breast cancer survivor who believes if you look good, you feel good, and ultimately “You Do Good”.
Our mission is to treat the inner and outer beauty of breast cancer warriors by nurturing their physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. In addition to continuing to meet the needs of the breast cancer warrior, we have a strong attention to building a strong and positive support system. (Community Outreach).
50 Shades of Pink Foundation recognizes the entire family is affected and should be equipped to fight the battle.
"Perfect Imperfections" showcases women who are survivors, caregivers, and breast friends. Each page is a vision of resilience, courage, and strength as these women boldly bare their breast, scars, and soul.
After beating breast cancer twice, I decided to establish the 50 Shades of Pink Foundation, to treat the inner and outer beauty of breast cancer patients and survivors. Our foundation focuses on taking care of women and men who are diagnosed and treated with Breast Cancer. Breast Cancer is covered by so many other wonderful organizations, but what sets us apart is that we nurture the person with this disease. I would like to see all Breast Cancer survivors get through this process and start feeling and looking like a champion!
