Remembering our founder, Barbra Watson-Riley

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

With honesty, heart and humor, this powerful story is told from the real-life accounts of survivors and their caregivers, examining life after diagnosis and what happens when these women are thrown head first into “the Cancer Lane.” Whether it’s the side effects of chemo or the loss of hair and friends, the play examines the twists, turns and bumps in the road along the breast cancer journey.

The Pinkwellchick Foundation, Inc. Board is proud to announce its $3,000 donation to the American Cancer Society’s Road to Recovery in Phoenix, Arizona.

Road to Recovery

Every day thousands of cancer patients need a ride to treatment, but some may not have a way to get there.

The American Cancer Society Road To Recovery program provides transportation to and from treatment for people with cancer who do not have a ride or are unable to drive themselves.

Volunteer drivers donate their time and the use of their cars so that patients can receive the life-saving treatments they need. If you or your loved one needs a ride to treatment, call the American Cancer Society at 1-800-227-2345 to be matched with a volunteer, or enter your zip code below to check for programs in your area.
