The Story Behind Tickled Pink
In February 2004, Carrie Kenney lost her seven-year battle with breast cancer at the age of 35. One year later, her cousin, Jodi Fyfe gathered a group of close friends and colleagues to start Tickled Pink Chicago in honor of Carrie.
Carrie Kenney and Jodi Fyfe
Carrie was a fun-loving, young woman who was diagnosed at the age of 27. After Carrie's death at the tragically young age of 35, Jodi was determined to keep her cousin’s fun-loving spirit alive. Jodi began by forming a team for a 2004 breast cancer walk but she wanted to find another way to remember the vibrant, fun-loving person who inspired her so much…and so Tickled Pink was born!
In February 2005, Tickled Pink threw its first party and raised $35,000! Every year the party and team of individuals that came together to celebrate those affected by breast cancer has grown and to date has raised more than $900,000.
Tickled Pink is a dynamic group of marketing, event and design professionals united by a drive and passion to help those affected by breast cancer.
This year, Tickled Pink is excited to announce its partnership with Bright Pink, the only national non-profit organization focusing on the prevention and early detection of breast and ovarian cancer. Bright Pink arms young women with knowledge, options and a great attitude, and offer companionship and empathy during their journey. Bright Pink empowers them to take control of their breast and ovarian health and in turn, grant them the freedom and peace of mind to live a beautiful and fulfilling life.
