It is our great pleasure and honor to partner with The Pink Fund to raise money for breast cancer survivors through Crowdrise and Dancing With The Survivors℠!
Most people - or someone they know - have been affected by breast cancer. What they may not be aware of is that while fighting for their lives, many breast cancer patients in active treatment lose their livelihoods. Unable to work patients often face catastrophic financial losses.
The Pink Fund, founded in 2006 by breast cancer survivor Molly MacDonald, provides individuals in active treatment with up to 90 days of financial assistance to cover non-medical expenses, such as health insurance premiums, housing, transportation, and utilities. The Pink Fund helps to meet basic needs and decrease stress levels, assisting breast cancer patients strengthen their fight to improve survivorship outcomes and quality of life.
On October 2, 2014, Fred Astaire Dance Studios - including those in Arizona - will team up with The Pink Fund for an amazing dance party & benefit ... Dancing With The Survivors℠. Ticket sales for the event, as well as funds raised through our Crowdrise page, will go directly to The Pink Fund. All funds raised in Arizona will be distributed to Arizona breast cancer survivors by The Pink Fund.
Treatment is just the beginning of overcoming the disease, with consequences that can linger for years, including a negative body image and loss of intimacy. Dancing is joyful and healing, and plays an important role in overcoming the negative effects of the journey that is breast cancer.
Please help us support The Pink Fund's mission by donating on this page. Even the smallest amount matters!
