A group of volunteers put together special care kits to serve patients fighting breast cancer and in need of extra help.
Pink Posse is an arm of the nonprofit Pink Aid, which provides financial and emotional support to women in the fight against breast cancer.
Sharon Finkel, co-chair of Pink Posse, says the goal is to bring some light to patients who can’t afford basic items.
“The trauma of breast cancer is so pervasive that having the additional trauma of not having the financial means to afford what you need when going through treatment is a different level of financial toxicity that we try to address,” said Finkel.
Each kit comes with essentials like toothpaste, toothbrush, soap, and other self-care items.
Organizers said the kits have been delivered to hospitals in the area, finding their way into hands of women who need it most in hopes to let them know they are not alone.
Pink Aid and Pink Posse are funded through donations.
