LOCAL & NATIONAL RESOURCES
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.

Paid Leave Washington
There are two main types of Paid Leave available:
1. Medical leave
When a serious health condition prevents you from working.
For example, you can qualify because of a major surgery, during pregnancy, to receive treatment for a chronic health condition and to receive inpatient treatment for substance abuse or mental health. The amount of paid leave you can take is determined by your medical provider (up to 12 weeks a year).
2. Family leave (includes bonding leave and military family leave)
You can take paid time off to care for a family member with a serious health condition, or if you’re bonding with a new baby or child in your family. Military family leave allows you to spend time with a family member who is about to be deployed overseas or is returning from overseas deployment.
You may use family leave to care for:
Spouses and domestic partners
Children (biological, adopted, foster or stepchild)
Parents and legal guardians (or spouse’s parents)
Grandparents (or spouse’s grandparents)
Son-in-law and daughter-in-law
Someone who has an expectation to rely on you for care—whether you live together or not.
We may require documentation about your relationship to the person or certification of their medical need.
You must have worked 820 hours in your qualifying period.
Nearly every worker can qualify for Paid Leave if they worked a minimum of 820 hours (about 16 hours a week) in Washington during their qualifying period.
Full-time, part-time, temporary and seasonal work count.
All hours you work in Washington count toward eligibility, even if you work multiple jobs or switch employers.
