Providing Practical Help and Support to Breast Cancer Patients and their Families
Pretty 'n' Pink Support Fund
Cancer can place huge finaincial strains upon patients and their families, and everyday practicalities that we may take for granted when we are healthy can be more difficult for those going through cancer.
Since Pretty 'n' Pink was founded, the charity has been supporting breast cancer patients and their families across Northern Ireland in a financial capacity through small grants dispersed from the Pretty 'n' Pink Support Fund.
In the past Pretty 'n' Pink funds have been used in an number of ways such as:
Help with travel costs to and from hospital appointments
Help to purchase post-surgery underwear / swimwear
Help with home heating and / or utility bills
Help toward mortgage payments or rent arrears.
Many other families have benefitted from respite breaks, cookery courses, funds for a social evening, and help out of financial difficulty.
As a charity we have the freedom to be creative with the money raised and we can help patients in the best way we can. We have the ability to create memories and happy times, and to take a patient's mind of their diagnosis even if it is only for a few hours. We do our best to help and assist breast cancer patients throughout Northern Ireland. If you need help and support please get in contact with us now, please click here for details.
"Appropriate financial help at the right time can lift burdens for patients and their families. The freedom to be creative in the use of the money will allow me to offer services throughout Northern Ireland"
