About 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 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 $1,000,000.
