About The Pink Heals Foundation
For women in their twenties, thirties and early forties, a cancer diagnosis and the journey that follows can be especially devastating. Surgery, chemotherapy and radiation treatments can strip young women of their looks, confidence and sense of self – in what would ordinarily be the prime of their lives. After months of exhaustive treatments, finding a ‘new normal’ can be difficult, especially amidst pressure to move forward and get on with life. Pink Heals is dedicated to helping young women regain their strength and beauty with fun, confidence building programming and events. For more information, please visit www.pinkheals.org.
