The Pink Lemonade Project is a 10-year-old nonprofit located in Vancouver, WA that provides support to women and men affected by breast cancer across the Vancouver-Portland Metro area. Their mission is to educate, empower and support all who have been touched by breast cancer. While the healthcare systems provide physical health support and advice, the Pink Lemonade Project works to provide practical, emotional and psychological support. The organization recognizes that those with a breast cancer diagnoses who have strong friendships and connections to the community are less likely to experience recurrence, have a lowered risk of breast cancer mortality and a lower risk of mortality in general. The Pink Lemonade Project’s programs offer support throughout treatment, recovery and beyond, and are developed in close cooperation with healthcare partners.
Pink Lemonade Project has many programs specifically designed to offer additional support to those affected by breast cancer. By providing financial assistance, individuals can focus on their recovery. The program called “Pink Peers” supplies a mentor to a patient in any stage from diagnosis to after treatment. The nonprofit has a peer support group specific to young women survivors called Zest and the “Metastatic Breast Cancer Dinner Series, serves as an intimate forum that discusses the latest research, treatment and management for those with an advanced diagnosis. The organization’s support even expands to a series of books that help families talk to their children about cancer diagnoses. Additionally, they host other monthly programs and events which include medical speakers, arts and crafts events or classes on cooking and nutrition. Pink Lemonade Project’s original program, the Revive Retreats, are three-day retreats which offer patients and survivors to recharge.
