The star of the ceremony was Mae Trexler, a 96 year-old woman who faced cancer 18 years ago, and beat it.
All funds raised by Pink Heals, which is 100% volunteer and 100% nonprofit, stays in the local community. "We are about serving women, not serving causes," insisted Andress..
He presented a $1,745.97 check to Paula Sue Ream, Executive Director of the LV Cancer Support Community. Her group offers a wide variety of programs and services to people battling cancer, all at no charge. .
Rev. Peter Bredlau, Pastor at St. Mark's Lutheran Church in Bethlehem Township, called Sally a "beacon of hope for all people - patients, survivors and families." He also joked that he hopes he looks as good as Sally does when he's 53. That's largely due to Bethlehem Area Vo-Tech students, who turned a rusting and decommissioned firetruck into a pink lady.
