Pink Posse Supports Patients with Cancer

Pink Aid was founded in 2011 by four individuals, all of whom were touched by breast cancer in a different way.  They all saw a void in providing compassionate resources to vulnerable, financially insecure patients battling breast cancer. The very essence of its mission is to help underserved individuals get through treatment with compassion, dignity and their households intact, while also serving to empower survivors of every socioeconomic level to heal by helping and inspiring others.

Caspin is a local volunteer who works out of Gorilla Commerce and he and his team put together comfort bags for our patients.  Each bag contained a gift card to stop and shop, blanket, soap, tea, botanical hand cream, tom's toothpaste and toothbrush, socks and sweet card from a child.  He presented them to Sue Crawford and Tina Harrison, colleagues in the Karl J. Krapek, Sr. Comprehensive Women's Health Center.
