There is a passion behind everything we do at Wings of Karen. This passion is shaped not only by the personal battles with breast cancer by our founder, Kristi Blair, but also by the unyielding desire to reach out to all those affected by breast cancer in a positive, uplifting way, and in the process funding the research that will find a cure. It is a race to save lives, and every day brings a new opportunity to make a connection, energize a survivor, empower a new generation, and raise the crucial funds needed. In the three years since Wings of Karen was founded, we have granted over a half million dollars to some of the most promising research in the world, including a cancer vaccine study, genetic sequencing, and new methods of early detection. It is the passion and intimate understanding of what it means to face breast cancer that will drive these results, benefitting men and women around the world.
