$250K In Financial Assistance Available For Michigan Breast Cancer Patients
In 2019, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services estimated that over 9,000 Michigan women would be diagnosed with breast cancer over the course of the year.
The Pink Fund, founded by breast cancer survivor Molly MacDonald, is a local nonprofit that provides between $60,000 and $85,000 in financial assistance to breast cancer patients each month.
MacDonald was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2005 and found herself facing financial burdens due to her cancer treatments.
“It was from my own personal experience with breast cancer that I realized how badly an organization like this was needed,” said Molly MacDonald, founder of The Pink Fund. “I’ve met so many incredible women over the years who suffer from financial hardship while undergoing treatment. Not only are these women fighting to stay alive, but they are fighting to stay afloat.”
