Motivational and inspirational speaker, Nikki Thomas-Freeman, has a story to tell and she wants to share her story with you. After seeing her mother and aunt pass away from breast cancer and having another aunt diagnosed at a young age and then getting the news of her own sister's diagnosis a few years ago, she knew something had to be done about promoting awareness and educating young women about this haunting disease. It was not until her own battle with breast cancer in September 2008,that she decided that the time was now!
Most of her life, breast cancer has been a vital part of her being. However, she has not and will not let this disease control her life. She wants to share with you how this battle has made her stronger, motivated, and passionate about reaching out to others, especially young women who think they are too young to get mammograms or too young to even get the disease.
If you want hear Nikki's story or would like her speak at an event, please call, 832-792-1709 or email firstname.lastname@example.org She's ready to make a difference.

PASS THE PILLOW PROJECT
The Pass the Pillow Project is a project created to bring joy, comfort and peace to breast cancer patients by providing them with a set of pillows to use during recovery.
How Did the Pass the Pillow Project Get Started?
While recuperating from a bilateral mastectomy, Nikki Thomas-Freeman was given a special set of pillows shaped like a purse by her cousin. Our family hadn’t seen anything like it. The pillows provided comfort from the scars, wounds and discomfort of her surgery. Nikki used the pillows while riding in the car, walking around, and even as she lied down to rest. As a result of seeing how much comfort and joy the pillows provided her, her Second Mom, LaTonya “Toni” Thomas, decided to take a pillow to a co-worker to see if it could be duplicated. It was from there that the Pass a Pillow Project was born. Toni took her first set of pillows to Nikki’s breast surgeon’s office in June 2008. These pillows provided peace and comfort to other ailing patients experiencing what sisters Nikki and Andrea had been through. The pillows brought immediate smiles and lots of joy to the patients, doctor and office staff. To date, Toni has delivered more than 100 sets of pillows to breast cancer patients in the Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) area. Through donations provided to The I W.A.N.T. Foundation the Pass a Pillow Project will continue to provide comforting pillows to many patients in Dallas Fort Worth area and hopefully all over the world.
The I W.A.N.T. Foundation has named the Pass a Pillow Project in memory of Susan “Nonnie” McCarthy. Susan was the original seamstress for the Pass a Pillow Project. Susan worked tirelessly for the project sewing and stuffing pillows for breast cancer patients. Susan passed away, July 30, 2009 from lung cancer. In honor of her life and support of the foundation, the Pass a Pillow Project has been renamed to the Susan McCarthy Pass a Pillow Project.
