The October 2011 issue of Bay State Parent featured Donna Wadden, the 2011 winner of the Miss Pink pageant. She is a 59-year-old mother of sons ages 27 and 30 and a breast cancer survivor.

The Miss Pink Pageant was started by newlyweds Ashley and Nick Shultz shortly after their graduation from Gordon College in Massachusetts. From her own experience as Miss Teen Maine 2006 and Miss Massachusetts International 2009, Ashley wanted to give breast cancer survivors the chance to tell their stories of survival and courage while having the chance to boost their femininity and confidence. 

The article by Carrie Wattu begins, “Strong warrior is not the typical description of a beauty pageant winner, but perhaps it’s time to rethink your definition of beauty. Introducing Miss Pink.”

You can learn more at The organization’s home page notes: The Miss Pink Pageant is a benefit event that celebrates the life of breast cancer survivors and their true beauty, courage and hope that they each possess. All of the proceeds goes towards helping end the fight of breast cancer through research and charity organizations, such as the Susan G Komen for the Cure and Breast Friends, a local non-profit on the North Shore.

The 2012 Miss Pink Pageant will be held on March 17. Perhaps you know someone who would be a great candidate! (I know someone.)
