Pretty In Pink Foundation serves North Carolinians diagnosed with breast cancer who are under-insured or uninsured. When breast cancer is present and medical insurance is not enough, care can be delayed or simply not ever received because of cost barriers. Once diagnosed with breast cancer, often times individuals are choosing between breast cancer treatment and quality of life needs like shelter and food.
The process of managing breast cancer treatment includes the careful coordination of medical professionals, surgeons, hospitals, oncologists and radiation oncologists. Once diagnosed, people with breast cancer are immediately thrust into a process unlike anything they have ever experienced. To make managing breast cancer a little easier, Pretty In Pink Foundation helps ensure that quality, life-saving medical treatment (surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy) is available to breast cancer patients residing in North Carolina.
