“Never did I imagine a breast cancer diagnosis would lead me to see and try to help fill a niche in services for breast cancer patients and their families. What we do is truly an act of love. It is a privilege to be able to serve so many and act on behalf of our generous donors, without whom, our mission would not be possible.”

“I have been active with many organizations similar to The Pink Fund over the years who work to help patients in need. What sets The Pink Fund apart is truly the simplicity and directness of its Mission, to provide short-term financial aid. I believe the targeted scope of this Mission allows The Pink Fund a much larger chance of success in meeting this Mission.”

“Too often, the trauma of being diagnosed with breast cancer is compounded by having to worry about paying bills while struggling to maintain a job and comply with treatment regimens. The Pink Fund’s mission, pure and simple, is to ease that worry by providing vital financial support to those in need. I am delighted to serve an organization that focuses so directly and practically on helping others.”
