Thriving Pink creates comfort bags for breast cancer patients


Sep 22, 2022

Thriving Pink, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping those in Yolo County impacted by breast cancer, recently held their annual volunteer day to create comfort bags for patients.

Founded in 2016, Thriving Pink is a volunteer driven organization that focuses on supporting patients and survivors by providing a network of support and resources. The organization hosts a mentorship program, workshops and renewals retreats and also awards financial grants to support those going through treatment.

Last week, over 100 volunteers gathered in Davis to put together comfort bags to distribute to newly diagnosed patients and local hospitals. Comfort bags included useful items as one begins their breast cancer treatment such as handmade cards, special notes and heart pillows to help after breast surgery.

According to Joni Rubin, board chair, the organization is always open to more volunteers as they look to further expand their reach.

“Our goal is to reach all of Yolo County,” Rubin said. “Our services are open to everyone in the county.”
