Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

There are so many organizations that focus on funding for a cure for cancer. We are in full support of those organizations, but realize that there is a critical need for the patients who are currently undergoing treatment and figuring out how to survive in the storm of their lives being turned upside down. Breast cancer can be physically, emotionally, and financially exhausting. Roles within the family unit change with treatment schedules and the demands placed upon family members. It is our belief that when one family member is diagnosed, it affects the entire family, and that is who our programming serves.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goals are to:
Provide week long retreats where familes can relax and reconnect to gain strength as a family unit.
Provide multiple families (typically 11) to attend the same week to help create support networks that last long after the retreat week.
Provide all programs, activities, meals and housing at no cost to the participant to provide a financial relief while medical bills are piling up.
Provide opportunities for local communities to engage in our retreat model and create a sustainable program that relies on the gifts and talents of the community.

By creating a week that is focused on breast cancer patients and their families, participants are able to normalize their cancer experience which allows for the ability to truly relax and

Poised with a strong network of national volunteers, Little Pink is able to leverage the compassion of local community stakeholders as they become leaders in our programming. With over 20 locations nationwide, Little Pink can serve breast cancer patients from all over the country.

How we listen

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

  • What significant change resulted from feedback?

    Feedback was given on the timing of survivor activity during the week just for the patient and the desire for that to be earlier in the process so that less time passed during the week before this sharing opportunity. We reviewed the feedback and made the change.
