ABOUT BREAST CANCER
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. With the local Komen affiliate gone, Pink Lemonade Project has graciously accepted two of their programs to support special segments of individuals with a breast cancer diagnosis: Treatment Access Program powered by Toni Mountain Fund and Metastatic Breast Cancer Dinner Series.
These new programs were added to our existing programs that help with education, financial assistance, support, and relationships/community connections.
There are many activities happening all month long. We hope you will join us!
Oct. 1 AG Plastic Surgery at 703 Broadway, Vancouver, and the Morrison Bridge in downtown Portland will be going PINK for all of October starting today.
