LEMONS TO LEMONADE:
IT’S WHAT PINK LEMONADE PROJECT DOES!
Whether you or a family member is recently diagnosed, in treatment, recovery, survivorship, or facing an advanced diagnosis, Pink Lemonade Project has thought about you.
Research shows that patients with a breast cancer diagnosis who have strong friendships and community connections have a lower risk of a recurrence, lower risk of a breast cancer-specific mortality, and a lower risk of total mortality. In fact, our programs were developed with close cooperation of our healthcare partners and are designed to support you during your treatment and recovery. We want to offer a community and help you live a vibrant life.
