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.

Breast Cancer Family Retreats

Little Pink provides free week long vacations for breast cancer patients and their families. The retreats are designed to empower, connect, and rejuvenate families as they are undergoing cancer treatment. Typically 11 families attend each retreat location.

Our hybrid model of retreats in 2020 and continuation of that model in March- May of 2021 explains the decrease in numbers. We have already surpassed our 2019 number in the third quarter of 2022.

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 recuperate. To help address racial and socio-economic disparities, we plan on initiating a travel scholarship program to help guarantee access to our programming.

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. Little Pink has also created a national Travel Initiative of Hope with leading business leaders to develop and implement our travel scholarship initiative.

Little Pink has successfully grown from 5 retreats per year to 22 retreats per year serving thousands of participants since its inception. Continued expansion and the addition of two new retreats in 2023 will help us serve the growing needs of our population. Additionally, we have developed an mobile app for paperless contact on our retreats.

Data

  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
Policies and processes
