Statistically, one in eight women will develop cancer in her lifetime – and Massachusetts is one of the five states with the most breast cancer diagnoses. While many fundraising initiatives raise money for treatment facilities and research, few nonprofits focus directly on the lives of women going through life after their diagnosis.

Pawsitivity 4 Pink provides direct financial support to low-income, underserved women in Massachusetts before, during and after their treatment, whether they have chosen traditional or holistic therapy. P4P recognizes that every breast cancer patient approaches their diagnosis differently and stands ready to support them according to their individual needs and preferences. The average grant for each recipient is $9,500, which is unprecedented. Pawsitively 4 Pink also rescues shelter dogs, training them as emotional support animals and then giving them away to a survivor of their choice.

“Music definitely gets the heart singing and brings people together! What an amazing and electrifying group of musicians coming together for a cause.” Power enthuses, “I’m grateful to everyone who understands the P4P mission and generously supports the community. If you missed the concert – just wait until next year!”

Founded in 2018, Pawsitively 4 Pink aims to eliminate the financial barriers women living with breast cancer face on their journey back to health and healing. The nonprofit organization provides financial support to underserved, low-income women diagnosed with breast cancer, particularly in Massachusetts and Worcester County.

Because so many patients with a breast cancer diagnosis undergo chemotherapy, surgery, radiation therapy, CT scans, and other painful and expensive disruptions to their daily lives, P4P works through partnerships and donations to cover expenses such as rent, utilities, childcare, and other expenses. out of pocket. These financial burdens can be ongoing, and P4P is currently the only organization that continues to help women up to six months after their treatment has ended.
