JUST DIAGNOSED?

Under certain situations after a breast cancer diagnosis, patients have the opportunity to consider total removal of a breast (mastectomy) or breast-conserving surgery (lumpectomy).  

Local breast cancer patients and survivors meet twice monthly to share feelings and concerns and receive emotional support through small group discussion.  These meetings are facilitated by two breast cancer survivors who consider it an honor to share in each person’s journey.

Pink Alliance distributes pink folders to surgeon’s offices and cancer treatment clinics for newly-diagnosed breast cancer patients.   

Working with local health care providers, Pink Alliance assists breast cancer patients and survivors with limited means by providing financial assistance for screening and diagnostic tests, insurance deductibles and medical payments.
