While fighting for their lives, many breast cancer patients in active treatment lose their livelihoods. Unable to work, patients often face catastrophic financial losses. The Pink Fund, a 501(c)(3) public charity, provides individuals in active treatment with 90 days and up to $3,000 of financial assistance to cover non-medical expenses, such as health insurance premiums, housing, transportation and utilities.
Dancing With The SurvivorsSM 2014, on October 2nd, will be an evening of dancing, music, cocktails, and delicious food to celebrate a nationwide community of breast cancer survivors who thrive in their recovery, and make a difference in the lives of other cancer patients. This event will feature local breast cancer survivors paired with professional dancers from Fred Astaire Dance Studios across the country, performing ballroom style dances, while raising money for The Pink Fund’s mission.
Fred Astaire Cherry Hill will be participating in Dancing With The Surviors and we will share more information about our local event as details are finalized. In the meantime, we ask for your support in supporting The Pink Fund by donating to our cause on crowdrise.com.
If you would like to help us make this event a success, you can also call the Studio at (856) 770-4294 or contact us online.
About The Pink Fund
The mission of The Pink Fund is to provide short-term financial aid to breast cancer patients in active treatment. The Pink Fund has been formed to help women (and men) focus on healing, raising their families, and returning to the workplace. The Pink Fund will provide short term financial aid during the brief period of treatment and recovery. Literally millions of dollars are being raised for early detection, research, and programs for the medically underserved. Families facing breast cancer urgently need financial help now.
