Pink Aid’s mission is to help underserved women in our communities survive breast cancer treatment with support and dignity and to empower breast cancer survivors to heal and inspire others.

Our grants support programs that provide services including free mammograms, diagnostic testing, wigs, recovery garments, meals, childcare, transportation to treatment and help covering personal expenses for patients undergoing treatment.

Some of the programs we support are established hospital foundations and national non-profits, while others are smaller grass roots organizations. Large or small, they share our goal to help local women survive breast cancer with compassion.
