A recent recipient had this to say about Pawsitively 4 Pink: 

“At a time when I really needed help, Positively 4 Pink showed up in my Facebook feed. I contacted Michelle Power the next day, got a letter from my oncologist confirming my breast cancer, sent Michelle a bill I needed paid and within days it was paid! This was the easiest process I have ever experienced and Michelle’s warmth felt like a friend. It truly felt like a miracle. I am a true believer that there are no accidents. I am beyond grateful that Pawsitively 4 Pink and Michelle showed up in my feed and I sincerely hope more people will get the help that they need. Thank you so much! In gratitude, Babs.”

The costs of breast cancer treatment and follow-up care can be a financial strain for a number of people and their families, even with health insurance.

Besides the cost of the treatment itself, you also may be facing extra expenses for travelling to and from a treatment center, child care while you’re having treatment, or lower income because you had to take time off from work. Then there is the cost of treating and/or managing long-term side effects, such as lymphedema or peripheral neuropathy. The cumulative costs of being diagnosed with breast cancer can also include: copayments for doctor visits, physical and occupational therapy visits, complementary and integrative therapy visits, emergency department visits, hospitalizations, lab workups, X-rays and other tests, all lymphedema-specific healthcare needs for any part of the body (compression garments, bandages, etc.), medicines or other health-related products, health insurance premiums, if paid out of pocket.

Michelle has always drawn inspiration from What Dr. King called life’s most persistent and urgent question: “What are you doing for others?” Let’s honor his legacy by standing up for what is right in our communities and taking steps to make a positive impact on the world.
