Remembering Barbra Watson-Riley

Memorial PhotoAfter a courageous and vibrant life “in the cancer lane”, the journey of our Pinkwellchick®, aka Barbra Watson-Riley, ended on November 7, 2013. She gave an amazingly valiant and dignified fight and triumphs over death by leaving the world the legacy of her play highlighting survivor stories, Life in the Cancer Lane. It was truly a miracle for her to witness her life’s work come to life on stage just weeks before she transitioned.

We will always remember her life and, through the Pinkwellchick Foundation, Inc., Barb’s Bag® and LIFE in the CANCER LANE©, her legacy of service, strength, and commitment to the health and well-being of women; especially those living with breast cancer and heart disease and their caregivers.

Reflecting on Barbra’s journey … in her own words
