Pink Angels

The Pink Angels was started by a group of women, many of them breast cancer survivors, with the mission of offering women in our community the latest in education and awareness on the benefits of leading a healthy lifestyle and ensuring that our resources are available to them.

The Pink Angels support the programs of the breast services areas from diagnosis to recovery.  Memorial Foundation through the Pink Angels Fund provides financial assistance to cancer patients for items and services that would not otherwise be available to them. These items include wigs, prosthetics, nail and hair care and integrative therapies.
