Pink Aid’s Pink Purse provides emergency assistance to underserved breast cancer patients in financial crisis who are undergoing active treatment for a breast cancer diagnosis. Funds provide emergency assistance for non-medical, household expenses with a 48 hour turn-around time once an application and all documentation has been received.

Please note that all bills will be verified prior to payment and that Pink Purse does not pay directly to individuals. Pink Aid pays up to $1,000 per twelve-month period on behalf of qualified patients.

*Active treatment is defined as the period after a positive breast cancer diagnosis has been made and during which therapies are being administered, including surgical procedures, to remove the cancer (e.g. single or bilater mastectomy, lumpectomy), chemotherapy or radiation. Active treatment does not include long-term hormonal therapies such as Tamoxifen or an Aromatase Inhibitor.

NOTE:  If you reside outside of CT or Long Island, NY and your household income is not 200% below the federal poverty level based on last year's federal tax return, unfortunately we will not be able to provide financial assistance to you at this time.
