Michelle W. - Pink Fund RecipientI found the lump on my 42nd birthday this year. Within two weeks, I was diagnosed with Stage II A Triple Negative Breast Cancer. Since my diagnosis, everything has been a whirlwind. With COVID-19, my inability to work, family, bills and more bills, I was truly overwhelmed.

The Pink Fund took a lot of stress off of me, to the point where I could concentrate more on my treatment and trying to feel better instead of stressing about finances. I am truly thankful for this. Thank you Pink Fund for being there for me when I had nowhere to turn. Thank you Pink Fund for being my support during this time.
