A VISION TO PROVIDE ALL BREAST CANCER PATIENTS WITH SUPPORT & DIGNITY.
In 2011, Pink Aid was founded by four individuals, all of whom are very active in the organization today. Each Founder was touched by breast cancer in a different way, but all saw a void in providing compassionate resources to vulnerable, financially insecure patients battling breast cancer. Other organizations exist to fund the important research needed to eradicate breast cancer, but Pink Aid is unique.
The very essence of its mission is to help underserved individuals get through treatment with compassion, dignity and their households intact, while also serving to empower survivors of every socioeconomic level to heal by helping and inspiring others.
