Provides much needed services to women or men that are going through treatment
I am proud to be a member of Pink Ribbon Girls, a local non-profit in the Cincinnati-Dayton area. The monthly Coffee Talks with other Breast Cancer survivors / fighters have been a great resource of information & support to me and we often have guest speakers come to tell us about the latest news in the fight against Breast Cancer. In addition to peer support, Pink Ribbon Girls also helps those who are going through treatment with nutritious family meals, house cleaning & patient transportation to treatments, at no cost to the recipients! Pink Ribbon Girls motto is No one travels this road alone.....I just know that I have formed friendships with some of the most caring, courageous and generous women I have ever met!
Amazing to be involved with this amazing charity - and to know the impact they are having on the daily lives of women fighting breast cancer in our community. A meal....a drive to treatment...or just someone to talk to - PRG is the BEST!
My sister was first diagnosed with breast cancer in her late twenties. She was then diagnosed with a re-occurrence of breast cancer, this time metastatic. Pink Ribbon Girls offered her their services and were a great help, both practically and emotionally, for my sister and our whole family.
My sister and her husband were the recipients of house cleaning as well as home-delivered meals, thanks to PRG. The house cleaning is such a valuable service - often as bills and appointments and stress build up, keeping up with vacuuming and dusting is the first thing to go... which leads to a cycle of being stressed anyway, then seeing your messy house and feeling more stressed! The cleaning helps to break that cycle, providing some relief in a time when it's sorely needed. Now those yummy meals... they were often shared with those of us there in the house on a given day helping to caregive, so I can attest to them being nutritious but also DELICIOUS! As my sister's condition worsened, it became harder to reliably leave the house with her, so it was so nice to know there were meals ready in the freezer at all times, so we wouldn't ever be stuck there without something to eat.
Finally, in the years before my sister died in February 2014, she felt lots of support as a YOUNG person with cancer, from the other members and the leaders at Pink Ribbon Girls. Offering companionship, resources, support and even just letting one know they are not alone... what a valuable service this group does for young women facing what is traditionally an older woman's disease. Thank you, Pink Ribbon Girls!
Pink Ribbon Girls provides much-needed services- meals,transportation, childcare and house cleaning- for young women undergoing breast cancer treatment. Their programs and events encourage awareness and have created a strong community throughout western Ohio. I'm so impressed with this group, and their committed, involved Board, staff and volunteers!
