Nicole Pomponio and Kathleen Zampirri have built a special friendship because of what they have in common. They’re both teachers trying to navigate online learning for the Neshaminy School District and they both have had a family member suffer from breast cancer.
“In 2016, my mom was diagnosed with stage III breast cancer,” said Pomponio. “Kathleen’s grandmom had just had breast cancer when Kathleen was very young. She, unfortunately, did not beat the cancer. When she was diagnosed our whole world was flipped upside down.
They wanted to ease that feeling for others. Since it’s October, and Breast Cancer Awareness Month, they had t-shirts made, and then sold to raise money to make care packages, that will go directly to breast cancer
