Martina had this to say about October 14th and this event:
“October 14th will be a very special day to send a collective message of hope to breast cancer patients, survivors and their supporters as we turn one of the world’s most popular landmarks pink. The first time I heard ‘I’m Gonna Love You Through It’ I got chills from my head to my toes. To be able to sing this from such an iconic place as the Empire State Building among breast cancer survivors and their supporters will be an incredibly special and meaningful experience for me. I am excited that the team from STANFORD will be there with me. It is a perfect fit.”
