A Local Mentoring Program

When a someone is newly diagnosed, they can experience a huge array of emotions and challenges. It is often difficult to know where or who to turn to for resources and unconditional understanding. Thriving Pink is dedicated to providing a network of support for the local breast cancer community.

PINK PEERS

We connect newly diagnosed individuals with Pink Peers to guide them through the challenges of breast cancer with emotional and practical support.  A Pink Buddies program also recently started with teens helping other teens/kids through a parent’s diagnosis.  Breast cancer affects the entire family and can be a very challenging time for everyone.  Visit our Event Calendar page on this website for opportunities to connect with others in a supportive environment.  You can also email info@thrivingpink.org for a Pink Peer Mentor or to attend a Pink Peer Group.

RENEWAL RETREAT

Every year, we host a Renewal Retreat led by a professional facilitator.  There is no cost to attend this special retreat which provides a respite from the stresses of daily life, a support group setting, and a unique opportunity to create close bonds with other survivors/thrivers.

PEER CONNECTIONS & PINK SPEAKER SERIES

A series of open monthly workshops designed for anyone diagnosed with breast cancer and those who support them. All workshops are professionally facilitated in a supportive environment, and usually held on Monday evenings.

Pink Peer Connection Workshops are based on themes of goal setting, milestones, and connection in a support group setting.

The Pink Speaker Series invites health professionals, including oncologists, to give presentations on treatment options and advances in research.

Visit the Events Calendar page for details to connect with and be part of our Thriving Pink community!
