TO HELP YOU ALONG YOUR JOURNEY
pink Lemonade Project and its programs serves all 36 counties in Oregon and six in SW Washington (Clark, Cowlitz, Klickitat, Pacific, Skamania and Wahkiakum). Each of our programs have different eligibility criteria, and sometimes a specific grant or donation allows us to expand services for a period of time, so please refer to our programs page (Ways We Can Help – Pink Lemonade Project) for more information for each program.
We want you to know that there is a community of care for those affected by breast cancer. Therefore, we have compiled a list of additional resources to help you through your breast cancer treatment and recovery.
Compiled below is a list of local and national breast cancer organizations, medical centers, community partners, local businesses and more who are here to help you along your breast cancer journey. You can click on ‘Select a Category’ to search by several pre-selected categories or type words/phrases, etc. into the ‘Search’ box.
Please note that we continue to add resources to this page and that we make every effort to ensure that the information provided is current.
Resources have also been compiled into a PDF document thanks to an OHSU Knight Cancer Institute Community Partnership Program grant. Click on the image at left or here to download the PDF now.
If you are aware of other local or national resources that could be added to this list, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A cancer diagnosis changes everything. As a woman of color, where do you go or who do you turn to when you’re in the midst of the fight of your life? You search online for stories and images of women who’ve gone through treatment and look like you, but you find little to nothing. Maybe you scroll down your timeline on social media, hoping to see a glimmer of hope in the face of other fighters and survivors, but you still yearn for something more.
That’s where “For the Breast of Us” comes in. Our mission is to empower women of color affected by breast cancer to make the rest of their lives the best of their lives through education, advocacy and community.
