The PINK Partners board has voted on and has started the preparation of dissolving the non-profit that we all know as PINK Partners.
It was with heavy hearts that the board came to this decision but is one that all of us think is needed. As of the end of 2018 we will no longer accept donations and it will take until about March 2019 or so for all the legal ends to be tied up.
Although the organization is dissolving, we again adopted a family that has been affected by breast cancer for the 2018 holiday season. We delivered the gifts for the whole family to the Cancer Center in time for Christmas.
We also purchased a double order of the books for the nurse navigator to get to the newly diagnosed patients at the Cancer Center.
Thank you so much for all of your help over the past 13 years. It is great to reflect on how much we helped the community and, I hope, each other. Each of our lives has been changed in some way by breast cancer and we have all moved on in our lives, I hope, because of our bonds from PINK.
Their mission is to bring women together for an annual event to raise money and awareness for breast cancer related causes.
H.O.P.E.’s mission statement is a volunteer-driven, non-profit organization founded in 1994 dedicated to providing high-quality, hands-on and heartfelt assistance and support to cancer patients and their families.
The Pink Out Women’s Cancer Fund was established in 2007 to provide financial assistance to breast cancer patients in the greater Hanover, PA area. As the fund has grown, support was expanded to women diagnosed with ovarian, endometrial (uterine) and cervical cancers.
