“After losing my beloved brother to cancer at 58, my life’s work became centered on understanding and addressing the needs of those living with the disease by listening to the experts – the patients themselves. Pink Fund plays a crucial role in this mission by helping patients and families tackle the financial struggles that so often accompany a cancer diagnosis. As part of the Pink Fund, I can honor my brother’s legacy by ensuring financial hurdles do not impede the vital care and support patients and their families desperately need.”

“Breast cancer continues to affect many women around the world, and despite multiple advances in the treatment of the disease, many families suffer a financial toxicity that can last a lifetime. No one should fight alone. I am honored to be part of The Pink Fund and be able to help and advocate for those in need.”

“There are great enough struggles for individuals diagnosed with breast cancer; the worry of finances shouldn’t be one of them. The Pink Fund makes it possible to provide breast cancer patients and their families financial assistance. As a community health advocate and a daughter who is familiar with the struggles breast cancer patients face, I was immediately on board and humbled to be a part of such an amazing organization with such a noble cause. “
