So could anyone have guessed this one might be included in 31 Days? It is only because of those that have so generously supported this idea that it can happen. The 2nd Annual Think Pink event far exceeded any of my expectations and gets me super excited about where God is leading this ministry. For those that don’t know, aside from the blog which was my initial outlet to all that was happening to me, Pinked Perspective was established for the purpose of sending hope to women facing mastectomy surgery in the form of a kit or care package full of information and items that would assist in their recovery process. The ideas for what would be included in the kit came about through the advice and information that was provided to me as I was about to go through it.
The items in a Mastectomy Kit include:
- A letter of support and helpful hints from my own experience
- Button down pajamas
- Jesus Calling Devotional by Sarah Young
- Journal and Pink Pen for recording medications and drainage
- Pink Flannel for something soft on the incisions sites
- Pink Sack for holding drains when bathing
- Bar of clear, white Dial soap
- Thank You notes designed and printed by a friend and breast cancer sister, Elizabeth of Little Bit Heart
I have an addition that I would like to make to the Mastectomy Kits this year but you will have to stay tuned to hear more details.
Since so many went above and beyond in their giving to Pinked Perspective this October with other pink items that aren’t included in the original kit, we been able to start sending non-Mastectomy kits. This is for those that may not necessarily be undergoing a Mastectomy surgery but perhaps a Lumpectomy or are beginning treatment with chemotherapy and radiation first. I just know that I want all women diagnosed to feel the love and support of Pinked Perspective.
This ministry will not continue without others. If you know of someone that is in need of a kit, please email me at [email protected] with a name, size for button down pj’s/t-shirts and a mailing address. It is not required but if you would like to sponsor a kit, donations may be made through PayPal (see Donate button in sidebar) or sending a check made payable to Pinked Perspective to P.O. Box 63, Arnold, MD 21012. All Donations to Pinked Perspective are tax-deductible.
