Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation
Winter 2012 – Women
When Nancy Block-Zenna’s insurance company refused to fund one of the courses of chemotherapy required to fight the triple-negative breast cancer the 35-year-old mom was battling, her friend, Robyn Littman, took action. Together with her husband, Jason, Robyn designed and marketed beach towels featuring a peace sign, a heart, and a pink ribbon, raising $9,000 to help their friend. When the insurance company eventually came through with payment for the treatment, Nancy insisted that the money be spent to help others facing a similar diagnosis.
