Breast cancer can wreak financial havoc on its victims. According to 2017 survey, 36% of breast cancer patients lost their job or were unable to continue working. And 47% of resorted to tapping into their retirement accounts to pay for out of pocket expenses. For some, the total financial impact of breast cancer can reach as high as $300,000.
Ultimately this burden can mean that even a few hundred dollars out-of-pocket to complete the last step of areola restoration isn't financially possible. Leaving them with only the scars, no areolas, and not allowing them to feel whole again.
Pink Ink Foundation is a non-profit organization that was created by Shannon Housley, an 3D areola tattoo artist, as a result of seeing how many women were unable to cover the costs of areola restoration.
We focus on positively increasing the number of lives we're able to change with areola tattooing. We strive to give as many breast cancer survivors the opportunity to take the last step in their journey and start feeling whole again.
Your support and contributions will enable us to provide grants for breast cancer survivors to complete the final step of their breast cancer journey. Your generous donation will help us change the lives of more women.
