Seattle Storm + Why We Wear Pink

“Sometimes medical issues can cause people to feel uncomfortable and awkward, and it’s just part of life.” – Fran Dunaway, TomboyX CEO

Last Friday, the Seattle Storm honored one of our fearless leaders—TomboyX CEO Fran Dunaway—as part of their Breast Health Awareness Night. Each year for one night only, these WNBA players sport pink jerseys with the Swedish Cancer Institute logo to show solidarity in the fight against breast cancer.

Fran sat down with Seattle Storm Guard Noelle Quinn to share her “Why We Wear Pink” survivor story for a video that ran just before the game. After joining her team in victory against the Minnesota Lynx and clinching the 2018 playoff berth, Noelle presented Fran with one of her previously worn Nike high tops that had been custom painted, complete with the TomboyX logo and the quote, “Don’t sweat the small stuff.”

Do you have a Why We Wear Pink story to share? We’d love to hear it in the comments below.
