Happy April! We are looking forward to Passion Week next week.
Not sure about anyone else but March was an absolute blur. It was exciting in that March 10th marked my last day of taking hormone therapy, Tamoxifen after being on it for ten years. It is definitely a milestone on my journey. It hasn’t felt much different without it, except the hot flashes that I thought would magically disappear have not. Hormones are a truly funny thing.
This weekend my husband and I attended the Bosom Buddies Charities Ball. It is our third time attending, but it had been 2 years since they were able to have the event due to the pandemic. It is always such a special evening out for us. We feel so blessed to have had the honor of locking arms with Bosom Buddies to carry out our similar missions of supporting those affected by a breast cancer diagnosis. Their grant to Pinked Perspective allows us to provide 30 additional Mastectomy and/or Non-mastectomy kits to those facing breast cancer treatment in Maryland in 2022. So much thanks to Bosom Buddies Charities for all they do for the advancement of breast cancer treatment in our area and for their support of our local Pink Warriors. We feel very blessed to have been able to partner with Bosom Buddies over the years to provide 30 additional kits for Marylanders each year!
The requests for kits continue to be steadily coming in. We appreciate the word being spread about the support we provide. We have 3 kit assemblies on the calendar for April!
We want to highlight our thankfulness to those that provide recurring monthly donations to Pinked. This is possible through PayPal, as well as many employers that provide payroll deductions for charity and sometimes offer matches to that monthly giving which is so incredibly generous! If you would consider giving this way, we would appreciate it so much.
Head to our SUPPORT page to sign up for monthly giving to Pinked!
