Thriving Pink supports individuals in Yolo County impacted by breast cancer. All services and programs are offered at no cost and are planned and delivered with breast cancer survivors and other volunteers. We educate, empower and provide support from the initial time of a breast cancer diagnosis, throughout survivorship. We provide grants, workshops, support groups, peer mentorship, retreats, and fellowship. We also support families and children impacted by breast cancer, care providers, and people with a family history of breast cancer. Through our program ProspeRosa, we offer materials, mentors, and targeted programs for Spanish speakers.
Currently, we reach over 1,000 Yolo County breast cancer survivors, donors, volunteers, and community members with our work. We engage a broad cross section of the local community - small businesses, healthcare delivery systems, and individuals - in outreach, education and awareness activities.
In 2022, we opened an office and community gathering/resource space for the Yolo County breast cancer community. With 1 in 8 women diagnosed with invasive breast cancer over the course of their lifetime there is a tremendous local need for a place to connect. Also, and in light of health, social, and economic hardships imposed by COVID these past few years, the need for our services continues to grow and we are steadfast and passionate in our commitment to meet those needs.
