Celebrate Pink is a non-profit organization created in 1999 by a physician, a group of breast cancer survivors and women with an interest and passion for wanting to provide assistance and comfort to those going through breast cancer treatment. The desire of the founding members was to keep the assistance provided to those either living or receiving treatment in Laramie county in Wyoming. The outreach was later expanded to assist those living in nearby Albany county.
We give monetary grants to help with personal, non-medical needs for those breast cancer survivors undergoing treatment. Grants are awarded to applicants at the discretion of the Celebrate Pink Grant Committee.
Through our annual fundraisers Celebrate Pink has been able to provide “Quality of Life” grants to numerous recipients. In the past 19 years, we have been fortunate to provide over $100,000.00 in grants to breast cancer survivors. Over 95% of the money raised at our annual fundraisers goes toward providing grants.
Grants may be used for daily needs such as gas money, childcare, food, assistance with rent, the purchase of wigs and other prosthetics, as well as a variety of other personal needs. They may also be used to enhance a survivor's emotional or physical well being such as massages, facials, a night out with a loved one or a trip to the zoo with the family.
