Pink Aid’s Survivor Network
Part of Pink Aid’s mission is “to empower breast cancer survivors to heal by helping and inspiring others.” Pink Aid’s Warrior Connection is open to all breast cancer survivors, or “warriors” as we call them, who want to join the Pink Aid family to get involved and “pay it forward.”
Through the Warrior Connection, you will meet fellow breast cancer survivors and share information, stories and a community of support.
Each spring, the Warrior Connection hosts a large educational event to keep Warriors up-to-date on all current topics and new developments in breast health in an intimate forum.
This year's lecture “Lifestyle, Early Detection, Genetics & Prevention" took place on June 9th via Livestream.
