Join Dr. Susan Love & The Pump Station to Help Stomp Out Breast Cancer!

Greetings Breastfeeding Moms!

Congratulations on choosing to breastfeed your baby! Not only is it great for your baby, it’s also one of the few things that we know women can do to reduce their risk of getting breast cancer. Also, as a Mom—my daughter is now 20!—I know firsthand how fast kids grow, and how you will cherish forever your breastfeeding memories.

I also want to let you know how happy it makes me that The Pump Station is again a sponsor of the Annual Pacific Palisades Love Walk, and I want to personally invite you to join us at the event, which will take place on Sunday, May 17, at 9am in Pacific Palisades.

The Pacific Palisades Junior Women’s Club hosts the 5K Love Walk, and I’m in awe of all the work they put into and enthusiasm they have for this fundraiser! Last year, we had over 500 supporters join us at the event, which generated more than $50,000, and we expect even more supporters to join us this year!

All of the proceeds from the event will benefit the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation and the work that we do to move us beyond a cure to eradicating breast cancer once and for all. We must find new answers to the continuing epidemic of breast cancer, and by supporting the Foundation’s research you will be helping to move the research that will end this disease forward.

Check-in and registration will start at 8:00 am, and the Walk will begin promptly at 9am. The walk is open to men and women of all ages, and we love having kids there, too! We may even organize special stroller brigade and Baby Bjorn contingents!

You can learn more about the Foundation’s research and register for the Love Walk on our website:

Also, don’t forget to sign up and be part of the Love/Avon Army of Women, an innovative breast cancer initiative with the goal of recruiting one million healthy women nationwide to take part in breast cancer research. You can learn more about it on our website:

I look forward to meeting you and your babies at the Second Annual Love Walk!
