Belle Vernon Mom and Breast Cancer Survivor Recognized with National Award

Belle Vernon Mom and Breast Cancer Survivor Recognized with National Award 

Kate Crawford is one of eight women named as a 2014 Pink Power Mom



ATLANTA, (Oct.1, 2014) – The Kids II Foundation’s Pink Power Mom network has named

Kate Crawford as a 2014 Pink Power Mom. Joining seven other moms and breast cancer

survivors from the United States and Canada, Crawford was selected for persevering through her

battle with breast cancer and for her efforts to help others in their fights. All eight Pink Power

Mom honorees have worked to positively impact their local communities by using their breast

cancer fight as a catalyst to make a difference.

Crawford lost her first daughter when she was only three days old. This prompted her to start a

non-profit to help grieving parents. Following that heartache, she had twins (now five) and a son

(now four).  In 2013, Crawford was diagnosed with breast cancer and was only given a 30

percent chance of survival. Since then, she has poured her energy into raising funds for her

cancer center, fighting her disease and completing her “mommy bucket list.” Her blog, The

Chronicles of Cancer, is read and respected in the worldwide cancer community.

“Kate was selected because of her insight and immediate outreach to address a community need,

while just beginning her own journey with breast cancer,” said Heidi Floyd, Pink Power Mom

Executive Director. “The network’s pay-it-forward award will empower Kate to continue her

wonderful mission.”

The Pink Power Mom award includes a $5000 donation to the winner’s charity of choice. Kate’s

donation will benefit the Women’s Cancer Research Center at Magee-Womens Research

Institute and the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute. The Women’s Cancer Research

Program is dedicated to reducing the incidence and death from women’s cancers across the

world. This mission is achieved through the development and fostering of vibrant basic,

translational and clinical research aimed at translating novel discoveries into improved patient

care.

"I am honored to be chosen as part of an elite group of women dedicated to breast cancer

research and support. I may have cancer, but it will never stop me from feverishly working on

raising funds to find a cure,” Kate Crawford said.

Crawford will be honored with all eight of the 2014 Pink Power Moms during the Pink &

Powerful weekend celebration in Atlanta, Ga., hosted by Kids II, in February of 2015.

Nominations to join the Pink Power Mom network begin on Mother’s Day every year. Selected

moms are announced every October, during Breast Cancer Awareness month. For more

    Your family is facing some difficult challenges.

    Help is here……

    Rev. Johnson / “Revyve” Spiritual Tea's has proven the ability to stabilize cancer and other deadly diseases.

    “Revyve” Spiritual Tea

    Rev. Johnson is a licensed Ordained Minister / Healer. She’s a phenomenal Spiritualist & courageous pioneer with a new approach to fighting deadly viruses and diseases with her Spiritual Practices and Spiritual Tea’s. Rev. Johnson has battled inoperable and terminal cancers.

    Cancer is a terrifying deadly disease many cancers are chemo and radiation resistant and many people don't even live long after receiving radiation or chemo.

    While scientists are still working to find a cure for cancer there are many who are dying. Cancer does not discriminate between adults and children. Cancer has only one mission and that is to kill! The cancer industry does not want a cure to be found while billions of dollars are being invested into cancer research and not one has discovered a cure yet. The statistics on how many people actually survive cancer while being treated by conventional medicine are slim to none.

    Rev. Johnson's has offered her services to many people. Those who have ignored her non-conventional methods, unfortunately are now deceased or are still struggling to live.

    “Revyve” Spiritual Tea’s PROVEN ability to stabilize Cancer as well as heighten the survival rates. “Revyve” Spiritual Tea’s also strengthens the immune system, reduces malaise, inflammation and pain, kills bacteria/fungus and parasites, detoxifies poisons from the blood, liver and body, restores organs and excretes tumors.

    This is a very powerful Spiritual Regiment.“Revyve” Spiritual Tea’s are blessed and prayed upon. Spiritual Treatment is Voluntary! Upon Agreement Of Spiritual Treatment You Acknowledge That The Results Will Vary And Assume Sole Responsibility Of Any Adverse Affects It May Have. We have the right to be selective. All information shared with Rev. Johnson is strictly confidential!

    My advice to everyone is to utilize any opportunity to preserve yourself or your love one's life even if it seems hard to believe. Never limit yourself exhaust all options and opportunities. Miracles happen everyday. By ignoring an opportunity you'll never know if it worked. And death is forever!
