Thinking bout my aunt Wanna today. I googled her name and to my surprise, I didnt realize the magnitude and abundance of supporters and how she affected others. Love and miss you aunt Wanna. Your favorite niece in new iberia, louisiana.

My friend, Wanna Wright offered me an opportunity to volunteer with the calendar project and let my picture be on her birth month which we shared. She was generous and I miss her. We made sure that the breast cancer survivor calendars were distributed to the community that needed them most.

Many of the calendar girls are pictured on the wall at Doctors Medical Center, San Pablo where I recently had my annual mammogram.

Wanna is one that helped many women be ""Alive to testify!" See you in heaven.

Rest in peace, Wanna. Your beautiful hats, thought-provoking poetry and inspirational songs will forever be missed. I'll always remember when you got then San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown to sing "This Little Light of Mine" at Andrea's Memorial in 2003. You could tell he was nervous to do it, but you lead him skillfully into the moment. It was a great one, and there were many others after that.

Thank you so much for your many years of dedication to the Breast Cancer Fund and for standing-up to the environmental causes of the disease.

You will be missed.

Sheila Brown

We will miss you and the light you brought to every room you entered, in your awesome, color-coordinated way. You brought so much to this organization from the very beginning. It will not be the same without you. and your dedication will never be forgotten.
