Pink Ribbon Society for Breast Cancer Awareness
The Pink Ribbon Society is an organization that helps promote breast cancer awareness. The Pink Ribbon Society services men and women in Lake, Porter, Jasper and Newton Counties in Northwest Indiana. It has always been important to the organization that the funds raised are dedicated to the local community supporting both individuals and other local breast cancer organizations.
When Pink Ribbon Society was first organized, a choice was made to keep all funds raised by our community, in our local community, to support the men and women of Lake, Porter, Jasper and Newton Counties whose lives have been touched by breast cancer.
We are deeply grateful for the organizations and businesses who help raise funds to support breast cancer research and we are eternally hopeful that a cure for breast cancer will be found soon. However, we are also very aware of the immediate needs of those who have been diagnosed with breast cancer right here and right now! Mammograms, prostheses, wigs and other kinds of support are immediate needs by patients that aren’t always covered by insurance.
We are very proud of the choice we have made to keep the needs of our local community close to our hearts. To date, Pink Ribbon Society has returned over $600,000 to both individuals and organizations in our community who share our mission and we will keep our promise going forward.
To Our Pink Ribbon Family and Supporters:
We are in the midst of planning two major upcoming fundraisers for the Pink Ribbon Society and do not anticipate having to cancel or postpone either of them.
We are moving forward with our plans for the 19th Annual Breast Cancer Awareness Tea on September 27th as well as our August 1, Strike Out Breast Cancer event with the Railcats.
Having said this and being a consciences community organization, we put the health and welfare of our patients, families, followers and supporters first. With that in mind, we are considering the implications of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) for our community.
As time goes on and we see the direction of this virus, we will follow the recommendations made by our local governments regarding the status of the coronavirus and possible cancellations of events and hope that by then, or sooner, this will all be behind us.
We will be sure to communicate such decisions in a timely manner via email, our Facebook page and on our website.
We are going to follow some immediate precautions and close our offices until April 1. Until then, we will stay in close contact with our voice messages and e-mails and will respond to any questions or immediate needs you might have.
Thank you for your support!
Please stay safe and healthy.
