Think Pink grew out of my own experiences as a cancer patient. In September 2000 I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. The tumour was removed but the metastases in the lymphatic vessels are still there. I decided to use my strength and energy to do something for fellow cancer survivors. With the financial support of Samsung Mobile, the non-profit organisation Think Pink saw the daylight on 21 September 2007. Through the years I could develop the organisation as a positive prevention campaign with a clear message: don’t give breast cancer a chance. It is our aim to offer people support during a difficult period in their lives. I know that being ill is hard. Even when you are cured of the disease, issues related to it keep lingering in your mind. However, life with the disease and afterwards is possible. For me, that life is called Think Pink. This is my way of giving breast cancer survivors the courage they need to keep going.
