She’s also hoping to spur conversation about the program by offering book clubs the opportunity to enter for a chance to win ten copies of the Read Pink edition of TEN BEACH ROAD for their group and a visit with Wendy at an upcoming meeting via Skype or by phone.
Commenting upon her participation in Read Pink, Wendy says “Breast cancer never touches just one life. It touches family and friends and even strangers, and its ripples extend through time regardless of the outcome. The amazing strides in treatment and the many who have overcome this disease are welcomed reasons for celebration, but we can’t forget there is still no cure. I am proud to be part of Read Pink and the effort to raise awareness of the need to keep the research and the hope going strong. I’ll be Reading Pink in October. I hope you’ll join me.”
