I'm so blessed my eldest daughter told me about this wonderful organization. I reached out to the organization and was put in contact with the most wonderful lady named Desiree. She was there at every email I sent; she helped guide me through paperwork and helped when I felt I wouldn't be able to get through the tough times. Desiree was so kind and sweet, she really made me feel that there were people out there who cared enough to help during my biggest time of need. Pink Warriors Angels Hill Country are truly heaven-sent. They helped me enormously when I felt most alone. The financial and emotional support they provided went above and beyond what I could have imagined. They were so kind! They listened to my worries about missing work and understood my concern for all the bills I had to struggle to pay. They were always just there for me, when I needed them most. There are not enough words to describe how grateful I am for their help. I whole-heartedly encourage cancer patients needing any kind of assistance or support to look into the Pink Warriors organization. They are a God-send for us breast cancer patients. Thank you again Pink Warrior Angel Hills Country, and God bless!

Thank you so much for my Chemo care kit! I was so excited to see what was inside! All the essentials! I think it’s amazing to have such a great organization that really dedicates the time to help and support women in the community during the most difficult time in our lives. I really could feel the love and unconditional support as I opened my kit. Right down to the personal note, Y’all are amazing! I can’t thank you enough! Xo Allura

I am not a breast cancer survivor but my mom is, and the music teacher at my school is. PWA sent her a mastectomy care package when she was going through her surgery. I follow this charity closely and love the work they are doing so that no woman fights alone. Getting cancer diagnosis is just about the worst thing ever. Many of my family members have been affected by it and we have been fortunate enough to be able to have the means to pay for medical care or not worry about missed work. I can NOT imagine what it is like for those with those worries, especially to have to be able to provide for your children as well WHILE you're sick. I can't say enough good things about PWA. They are honoring wishes for those with stage 4 and helping others along the way. Keep up the good work ladies!

I have seen first hand how much PWA has helped the Texas Hill Country since its inception and I fully support this wonderful non profit. 100% of the funds raised go towards breast cancer survivors to help aid in every aspect from wigs, car payments, groceries... you name it! Jen is an absolute blessing to everyone that crosses her path and I am SO thankful that breast cancer survivors can turn to her & PWA when they are in need.

I can’t say enough great things about PWAHC. They do amazing things for so many people. I was lucky enough to attend one of their gala’s a few years ago and it was amazing.

My sister Jen Reynolds was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2013 at age 33. Not long after her experience of going through chemo and having a double mastectomy, she decided that other women going through this impossible time of life should have the support of others who have had experience going through this traumatic life change.

It was then that Pink Warrior Angels was started. Jen started a blog detailing her journey, where others could take solace in reading about her experience, ask questions and share in their path. This mentoring grew into an organization that provides chemo care kits, mastectomy kits and financial aid for those going through treatments.

Earlier this year, I was fortunate enough to attend their main fundraiser "Breast in Show Gala." Over 400 attendees raised over $100,000 . But that was not that most impressive part. I have attended and helped organize many non-profit events over the past 15 years and none of them were as well attended, organized, and emotional as this one. Every detail was carefully thought out and the stories from women who have benefited from this organization and created lifelong friendships by joining in a cause they care so deeply about, was simply amazing.

This year, they started a program called Metawish to help woman who are now stage IV fulfill a dream of theirs and they made their first dream come true sending a woman and her family to Hawaii.

Jen was recently diagnosed with stage IV herself, making this event even more meaningful for all of those her organization supports and those who support them back. It was awe inspiring to see the bonds these people have all made and the effect of how a little help from a lot of people can go a long way.

I have to admit I am very proud of my sister for taking the biggest lemon she could have been dealt and turning it into something that has helped so many other women. I would urge anyone who has the time, energy, or means to assist this organization in any way possible.

My daughter Jen Reynolds was diagnosed in 2013. It was a lonely path going thru chemo and a mastectomy at 33 and once thru it she decided that there had to be a program where women could help each other. What started as a mentoring program, has grown into a place where woman can come and get chemo care kits, mastectomy kits and financial aid.
Recently we started a program called Metawish to help woman who are now stage IV fulfill a dream of theirs.
It is such an amazing feeling to see the bonds of friendship that are formed and the effect of what some financial assistance can do to lift someone spirits when they feel they have no place to turn for help. I am blessed to be part of this organization.

The words I have to say about PWA wouldn’t even cover the impact this organization has had on women in my life. Truly a fantastic group and I would recommend getting involved to any woman or man going through treatment.

Absolutely wholeheartedly believe this organization has positively changed many people’s lives. Helping diagnosed patients, along with their families, is just one of the many big things they do for the community. They also give back on a personal level, offering emotional and physical assistance during their time of need. There are just so many wonderful programs within- Metawish (making dreams come true to metastatic patients), Financial Assistance Program, Care Package Program, and even a wonderful Volunteer Program. Pink Warrior Angels Hill Country is built from love, sharing and hope and I recommend this to anyone looking for help after a diagnoses or wanting to give back through donations and volunteering!

PWAHC has been a great blessing to my family and I. They've helped me financially and emotionally. They have helped pay my rent and utilities when I couldn't and they granted my dream vacation through their new MetaWish program for metastatic Breast Cancer patients like myself, a cancer that has no cure. That's why we need to do more for stage IV, and I believe that PWAHC will be able to do that if they have your support. 100% goes back towards their purpose including their survivors to help aid in every aspect that cancer affects us!

PWAHC is such an amazing organization dedicated to helping women with breast cancer. This small local organization has had a BIG impact on many women and their families. If you have ever had a devastating health diagnosis then you can relate to the overwhelming anguish you feel only to be hit again with a financial blow. PWAHC helps alleviate both of these blows by offering emotional and financial support. I know of many woman who have been impacted in a very positive way by this organization.

When I first got involved with PWA Hill Country, I had no idea HOW MUCH impact this organization has. It wasn’t until I actually met the women and families who have been helped and lifted up by Pink Warrior Angels Hill Country, and I am so proud to be involved.

Whether it be helping someone pay their bills, providing emotional support at 3:00 in the morning, sending someone a chemo care kit, or granting a Metavivor’s lifelong wish, I know that Pink Warrior Angels Hill Country is making the world a better place one life at a time.

I am so very blessed to have found the Pink Warriors organization. They blessed me at a time when I needed it the most. I am a cancer survivor and it has been a struggle daily to make ends meet sometimes. I am thankful for the journey although I wasn't prepared. Blessings to the Pink Warriors for their generosity and caring spirit to reach out and help others. I am so appreciative.
