I Am More Than Pink

Anyone can be affected by breast cancer. Whether you know someone who has suffered with the awful disease, someone who has lost a loved one, or you are fighting your own battle, there is always someone to offer encouragement. Pioneer FCU employees have shared their stories of why they are committed to supporting the Susan G. Komen Foundation to help find a cure. If you'd like to us raise $5,000, click here to donate now. Together, we are more than pink!

"I am Pioneer's VP of Marketing & Development, Elizabeth Thomas. My sister-in-law, Cassie, a wife and mother of two young children, was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 28. After a hard fight for three years, she lost her battle to this terrible disease. I am committed to donating to the Susan G. Komen Foundation to help find a cure so other children do not have to grow up without their mom, and so other women don't have to suffer through the horrible effects of breast cancer."

I am Pioneer's Marketing Manager, Lyndsey Brown. My friend, Kara, a mother of two and military wife, was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 28. I am committed to donating to the Susan G. Komen Foundation every year to give back to cancer research in hopes that Kara can be a part of her children's lives for many years to come.

"I am a Financial Solutions Specialist at Pioneer, Abi Bennett-Schweizer. My beautiful aunt was diagnosed just over seven years ago, and it was the scariest time of our lives. She went through the whole treatment and stayed strong through it all. About two years later, her cancer had returned and she was back in chemotherapy. Being a doctor, she was very scared, but she overcame her fears and fought through both times. I am thankful every day that she's still here with us, living her life to the fullest. She has found positivity in her battle, and I find that truly remarkable. I am committed to donating to the Susan G. Komen Foundation in hopes that one day we will find a cure for this disease, and we can conquer it head on."

"I am Pioneer's Computer Operations Specialist, Angie Ley. My mom was 56 when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She went through three rounds of chemotherapy and one round of radiation before the cancer spread to her brain. Unfortunately, the cancer in her brain was too much and she died at age 61.

I show my support by walking in the Race for the Cure and raising money to help beat breast cancer. I sponsor other friends and family members who participate in fun runs to raise money as well.

I am a huge advocate for mammograms and encourage all women to get one. My mom's cancer was found by a mammogram when it was too small of a lump to feel. If she hadn't gotten the mammogram when she did, her fight would have been worse, and we wouldn't have had as much time with her as we did."
