Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Cancer, Health

Mission: PHILOSOPHY Pink Warrior Angels is focused on providing direct support to those that have been diagnosed with breast cancer. We firmly believe that no one should ever feel alone in their battles We act on what we have experienced in our own personal battles with breast cancer by providing resources, financial assistance, and most importantly emotional support to our warriors through our angel/warrior program. Pink Warrior Angels was created to fulfill needs we feel were lacking during our own personal experience with breast cancer. Both co-founders know what it feels like to go through a breast cancer diagnosis feeling alone and confused. From the moment a women is diagnosed, their entire life can take a turn and though they may not realize it at first, seeking support through those that have experienced and conquered their own battles with cancer, is something we believe can help them along their journey. No one should ever have to fight this battle feeling alone. While it may be difficult to acknowledge the need for this type of support, Pink Warrior Angels encourages our warriors to to seek that support in a more personal way by providing them with an angel to carry them through. Though our friends and family were an amazing support system, they didn’t truly understand the challenges we were facing emotionally and physically. This is not something we believe can be fully understood unless you have experienced a cancer diagnosis directly. We know what it feels like to lose our hair, to face the fears and challenges of that first chemotherapy treatment, and then to cope with the loss of our breasts. These life-long bonds that are created through our organization are so meaningful and so important for the well-being of our warriors to carry them through those tough times. We are so incredibly proud of the sisterhood that is created through Pink Warrior Angels. Watching these bonds form, knowing that we are helping our warriors through one of the hardest times in their lives, is something we pride ourselves on. It truly is something special to know that they never have to feel alone in their journey and that we are able to provide that level of comfort in their journey.
