Non-Mastectomy Kits: Because of the generosity of so many that have supported Pinked Perspective, we have been able to start sending non-Mastectomy kits as well on a limited basis. Depending on the resources available, a non-Mastectomy kit may be provided for those that may not necessarily be undergoing a Mastectomy surgery but perhaps a Lumpectomy or are beginning treatment with chemotherapy and radiation first.
Sponsor a Kit: If you know of someone in need of a kit, please provide a name, a size for pajamas and a mailing address for the recipient via the form below. If you would like to sponsor a kit, donations may be made through PayPal (see below) or sending a check made payable to Pinked Perspective to P.O. Box 63, Arnold, MD 21012. The approximate cost to cover the expenses of a Breast Cancer Kit is $50 but any amount is appreciated.

What Kit Recipients are saying:
“A thank you note will never be sufficient to tell you how much it meant to me to receive a kit. I was so touched. It was like Christmas morning! And a surprise like that lifted my spirits to soaring.”
~Mastectomy Kit Recipient, Alabaster, Alabama
“I did not want another day to go by without thanking you for the wonderful “package” you left me at my hospital bedside. I have used the book Jesus Calling, every single day (and many times during the day) Your beautiful letter meant so much to me to hear your experiences, as well. I cannot thank you enough and feel like I know you already.”
~Mastectomy Kit Recipient, Annapolis, MD
“Today the wonderful package you sent me arrived. I stayed in bed today, just laying there until 1pm. I opened my mailbox and this surprise was there. I am overcome with gratitude. I could feel the love and care as I unwrapped each item. The pj’s are so lovely and now I have 3 sets so I should be okay. The Jesus Calling book is exactly what I need right now, and every day.”
~Mastectomy Kit Recipient, Ontario, Canada
The comments above are just a few of the responses that I have heard from women who were facing breast cancer surgery and were able to receive one of our Mastectomy Kits because a loved one contacted us and requested it for them. These comments are the reason I am passionate about Pinked Perspective and being able to continue to provide these kits for those being affected by breast cancer.
