Since 1985, October has been designated as a month to focus on breast cancer, from reminding women to get mammograms to highlighting breakthroughs in research and medicine to celebrating survivors. It is a time to call attention to this devastating disease that 1 in 8 women are diagnosed with every year. But there’s another part of this fight that many are unaware of: the devastating and largely unknown financial burden that breast cancer can have on some patients.
To call attention to this, we’re declaring October as Breast Cancer UnAwareness Month. Join us in support by donating now and turning your pink ribbon upside down to symbolize the other part of the fight.

No one undergoing breast cancer treatment should ever have to choose between getting medical care or paying their household bills. Sadly, treatment costs, coupled with income loss, force them into hard decisions. The financial side can be just as devastating as the medical side. That's why there's the Pink Fund.
We are the ones with Real Help for the Other Part of the Fight.
I have hope and a better financial window because of you and I don't feel the weight on my shoulders or fear of being homeless and hungry
Nothing however prepared me for the financial disability I would face while undergoing treatment.
Without The Pink Fund's help we would still be juggling expenses to see what we could pay or not pay so I could continue my treatments.
It is truly life changing, we can focus on treatment and healing without having the cloud of financial doom over us.
The Pink Fund has been another wonderful blessing. Thank you is not enough for the financial assistance that you have provided...
