The Pink Patch Project is an innovative public awareness campaign designed to bring attention to the fight against breast cancer and to support breast cancer research organizations in combating this devastating disease.
It is estimated that approximately 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. The disease can have a profound impact on the patient and her loved ones. However it is a disease that can be effectively treated with surgery, radiation therapy, hormone therapy and chemotherapy.
At the Pink Patch Project, we have the simple goal of increasing awareness about the life-saving benefits of early detection and intervention in the fight against breast cancer. In addition to our public education efforts, we have the added goal of raising funds from the sale of Pink Patches to go directly to fund the research, treatment and education needed to help find a cure.

Those are just a few of the things we did last year for the Pink Patch and will be doing them again this year so please show your support!
