PINK DOOR ~ A CHARITY FOR WOMEN CANCER SURVIVORS

I learned about the Pink Door charity from my new Associate Tiffany Sniezek.  This organization focuses on offering assistance for women who are currently recovering from the devastating effects of cancer.  Anyone who has ever been through the fight with this illness know that the recovery can be long, lonely and financially draining.

Pink door is a nationally classified 501 c 3 nonprofit organization that has been established since October 2007.  The entire focus of the organization is to assist women in getting back on their feet as quickly as possible during and after battling the ravishing disease of cancer.  The organization assists in three ways:

  1. My Pink Wish Assistance Program -

    This program enables women cancer survivors to request their “wish” to come true either during or after cancer. Through Pink Door’s “My Pink Wish” Program, women cancer survivors may apply to have their “wish” come true. Each year, one woman cancer survivor will be selected for her wish to be granted.

  2. “WOMEN IN PINK” SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

    The “Women In Pink” Scholarship Program allows the opportunity to women cancer survivors to go back to school at a nationally accredited college or university for her undergraduate or graduate degree within the continental United States.

  3. WOMEN'S CANCER RESOURCE CENTER

    Pink Door’s Women’s Cancer Resource Center provides information on job links/careers, healthy living, national and local cancer support groups/nonprofits, a doctor’s blog for the latest in medical information on cancer, as well as Survivor’s Speak – A blog for women cancer patients and survivors have received help from Pink Door.

I am excited to learn about this great organization.  As a woman who has battled through two devastating illnesses, I understand how battling through an illness completely turns your world upside down.  Organizations such as this are very needed and so important.

I will be looking for ways to get involved with this group!  I will certainly be posting up-coming events that they will be doing throughout the year!  Thank you Pink Door for what you are doing for women!

Paula,

Any group that help find a cure and care for those in need is alright with me.  We do a lot w/the Susan G, Komen Foundation in Philadelphia and we have seen the good that can be done.

Thanks Larry and Dan.  What I really like about this organization is that it helps women who are battling ALL types of cancer.  There is so much need out there and anyone who has gone through something like this knows the lonliness and the financial devastation that can happen from this.  Such a great cause.

The Pink Door sounds like a wonderful resource for women battling or recovering from this devastating disease.  I'll look forward to reading more about their events that you post in the future.

Morning Paula with all the attention going on with women's illness maybe people will wake up.  Most people have heard it on the news, read it in the paper and so on and I believe the views are changing but it will still take a little time.

Hi James, thanks for stopping by.  Isn't it great that there are these types of organizations who are looking at another side to this illness which is not just a cure?  Of course a cure is the best however, the day to day reality is that lives are devastated and those in the fight need major assistance.

Paula, This is something very close to me. My wife and mother hare both cancer survivors. I worked at Seattle's cancer center and was in the bio-tech industry for 20 years dealing with the human immune system.

Dealing with cancer can be a devasting thing not just for the the person who has it but for the family and friends.

We have come such a long ways from those early days but the road is still a very long one.
