Board of Directors
Executive Director and Founder
I am a native of Northern Kentucky, raised in Crestview Hills, KY. At age 40, a newlywed and mother of 4, a breast cancer diagnosis brought sorrow, tears, painful uncertainty and emotional tension. It shined a light on reality and the true lack of control we possess over our own mortality.
However, time brings clarity and the realization that breast cancer blessed me with gifts of patience, humility, wisdom and above all, understanding and compassion.
The diagnosis clearly revealed to me my mission, vision and path on this earth. In 2002, I proudly founded I Have Wings Breast Cancer Foundation. Since then, thousands of families have reached out to us for a helping hand, a compassionate ear and the promise of better days ahead. Our services bring relief to survivors allowing them to thrive, fight and overcome the financial and emotional stress of a breast cancer diagnosis.
As the IHW Executive Director, most of my time is spent running the foundation. However, my evenings are with my husband, Brittney spaniel, and enjoying our twelve grand children! Life is good and I relish every minute of every day!

Connie Flynn is a breast cancer survivor since May of 2012. Just 6 months after her diagnosis, her husband, David, passed away from a 12-year cancer battle. Undergoing chemotherapy simultaneously, followed by David’s unexpected death, Connie was presented with life’s greatest challenges. While adjusting to new circumstances, she continued to work full-time at Remke Markets, and care for their 2 children. Though she would never wish cancer on anyone, but she has received unbelievable blessings because of this journey.
Connie now works for Erigo Employer Solutions, and finds tremendous pleasure in spending her ‘retirement’ time babysitting her grandson and helping nonprofits. Connie has always enjoyed volunteering for numerous nonprofits.
Having the opportunity to serve on the board of directors for I Have Wings, has provided Connie great fulfillment as she continues to assist other cancer survivors. Cancer affects the whole family circle, and Connie’s life is enriched by sharing in their journey.
