In case you haven`t met Beverly Hendricks of San Antonio, Texas, please take a moment to learn about her mission to educate the world about the statistics of Breast Cancer. Since being diagnosed herself in December of 2003, Beverly has not only mustered up the strength to fight through her own personal battle with breast cancer, but she`s so selflessly driven "awareness" to the next level. Literally!For two years, Bev, her devoted family and several generous volunteers put their heart, sweat and tears into the re-birth of a 1960 Shasta Trailer now known as "THE PINK WINGED WARRIOR”. What is she going to do with a pink Shasta trailer you ask? Well, this is what she had in mind, before the PWW was born:“I became determined to find an old camper, fix it up, and attend camping and Breast Cancer Awareness events across the US to tell women like me about the statistics.” And so, she travels…
"People ask me all the time, "Why did you really do this?" My answer to them is simple...What else could I have done? I am not a Doctor, Chemist, or Surgeon. I know nothing about Chemo or Radiation except how it feels to receive it...I do not have millions or even hundreds of dollars to get this information to the next family it is likely to effect. So I will do it my way ...in a Little PINK Travel Trailer, and effect as many people as I can. I hope you can share in the joy of the journey with me. PINK Huggs! Beverly Hendricks"
