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 the Pink Ribbon Society was first organized, a determination was made that we would keep all of the funds we raise 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.
Of course, we’re grateful for the organizations and businesses who help raise funds to support breast cancer research. We are eternally hopeful that a cure for breast cancer will be found any day.
However, we are very aware of the immediate needs of those who have been diagnosed with breast cancer right here in our own back yards. Mammograms, prosthesis, wigs and support of many other kinds are needed today!
We are very proud of the choice we have made to keep the needs of our local community close to our hearts and we promise that this will be the direction we will continue to take.
Funds help to underwrite a variety of Pink Ribbon projects including the wig reimbursement program, Indiana Women In Need, the State of Indiana’s Breast and Cervical Cancer Program, Methodist Hospital Foundation, Bundles of Hope and educational programs.
