When a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer, she needs a lot more than medical help. She needs rides to and from treatments, babysitting, grocery delivery, medical navigation, wigs, recovery garments and so much more.
With a staggeringly high rate of occurrence, there are countless women that cannot afford to go through treatment with the proper care and dignity. Many also need free mammograms to help with early detection.
There are several organizations that compassionately assist women in need that are diagnosed with breast cancer… but of course, they are in great need of funding.
While it is critical that we all continue to contribute to breast cancer research initiatives, Pink Aid is a grant-based organization that funds the efforts of organizations that provide this type of compassionate care… currently locally and ultimately beyond.
Pink Aid offers a welcome opportunity to join together to make a real difference in the lives of many women and their families, within and around our communities.
Founded in 2010, Pink Aid was granted 501C3 status in 2015. All donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
With support from a strong team of talented volunteers Pink Aid Long Island raises funds through customized events that offer a welcome opportunity for area men and women to join together to make a real difference in the lives of Long Island families. The Pink Aid Fashion Show which will take place on October 19th, 2016 at Mitchell's on Main Street in Huntington is the highlight of the year.
Throughout the month of May, Pink Aid Long Island will present Sweat 4 Pink, a spring wellness and exercise event. Participating area yoga studios, gyms and fitness centers will donate proceeds from select classes while those who take the classes will receive a limited edition Tank T-Shirt.
