Background: While working as a disability case manager she began to see an influx in the number of cancer cases that were diagnosed at later stages. During that time, she also experienced the death (due to cancer) of several family members as well as a sorority sister who lost her battle to breast cancer. Feeling powerless, she began to think of ways in which she could make an impact in the fight against cancer. It was during this time that her purpose was revealed, and the groundwork for Empowered by Pink began.
Priscilla has vowed to live a life of philanthropy and to dedicate her life to raising awareness and educating the community on ways to prevent cancer. "Everyone deserves to live a full, sustaining life without cancer. No one should have their life cut short due to not being able to receive quality healthcare. If it means that I am only able to save one life, I am willing to start with that, but I will continue the fight, until my mission is complete".
