Donor Spotlight | Keira

"The Pink House made my aunt feel beautiful while cancer and treatments were taking a toll on her body...I wanted to give other women the chance to feel beautiful and loved like she did."

Carolina Breast Friends was important to Kristen Gordon. Says her niece Keira, "She talked often about how wonderful this place [The Pink House] is."


Keira lost her "Aunt Kristi" to metastatic breast cancer this past summer. As a way to honor her memory and support others on their breast cancer journey, Keira enlisted the help of her soccer team at Charlotte Soccer Academy (CSA) Huntersville. During Breast Cancer Awareness month this October, they committed to having a pink week. Open to players, family and friends, everyone came together to participate in the fundraiser by wearing pink to practices and games and encouraging people to donate to the cause.

At the end of their pink week, Keira had collected $650 to donate back to CBF. Soon after, Keira and her mother, Crystal, visited The Pink House for the first time to make their donation in person.


"Getting to see the facility meant the world to Keira," says Crystal. "We both were sad when we left, but I think giving back helped to heal our hearts a little."
