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.

I've had the privilege of knowing one of the founders of PWA for most of my adult life and have seen her as she went through her own cancer diagnosis and moving forward with the idea of Pink Warrior Angels. Pink Warrior Angels has touched the lives of many and gives those with a cancer diagnosis hope and a hand to hold during treatment and beyond. I'm excited for the growth and possibilities that lie ahead for PWA and those whose lives it will touch in the Texas area and beyond!

I was diagnosed on April 21, 2016, at 39 years old with Stage 2, Invasive Ductak Carcinoma. I was a single mother of a 4 year old. I was devastated. My biggest fear was my son growing up without me and not being around to see all the amazing milestones in his precious life. My son is my entires world! So I scheduled a double mastectomy as soon as my family could arrive to help after surgery. I had a double mastectomy on June 8, 2016. It was confirmed my cancer had matastised to a lymph node. I began chemo August 1, 2016 and completed October 3, 2016. My son gave me the strength to keep fighting. I have gotten married and my husband is my rock. He has helped get my son to school and played many roles assisting and making sure my son was the least affected by my illness. We are an amazing team. I've been cancer free since Feb 3, 2017. And I'm anxiously waiting for my 1 year cancer free anniversary... Pink Warrior Angels was absolutely amazing during my journey from sending mastectomy bags, pillows, activity books, head wraps, to anything I needed. They are a wealth of knowledge and support. They do amazing things for women who need the support of others who have been through this journey themselves. Having someone that's been through this and there to cry, talk or answer questions is such an amazing feeling as a warrior and going through the most challenging time of your life!

Pink Warrior Angels has touched my heart from volunteering for the nonprofit and seeing all the wonderful things that we get to do for so many woman. To learning so much about breast cancer and that it hits all ages not 40+. To be able to part of this nonprofit is truly honorable. The co founders are amazingly strong women that get to show other woman that can make it through. The are always just a call away, a chemo buddy , a smiling face for dinner or lunch date but most important always a source of knowledge, recourses and love!
