I had never heard of “Pink Up the Pace” and began to cry uncontrollably from relief and emotions that had been building for the past four months. I thought I was going to die from breast cancer as my insurance did not cover cancer testing nor treatment. “Pink Up the Pace” did in fact pay for all of the very expensive initial tests that were used to determine the best course of treatment for my particular kind of breast cancer. Finding out you have cancer is overwhelming – emotionally, mentally, physically and many times financially. I am grateful to “Pink Up the Pace.” They are truly life savers.
Thanks to the Pink Up the Pace organization I was able to attack my cancer a lot sooner than I would have been able to do on my own. Financially, I was not prepared for the unexpected news of having breast cancer. PUTP helped me with several of the initial tests that needed to be done right away. Without their help I do not know what I would have done. I am forever grateful for the financial support that this organization has given me.
I would like to thank Pink Up The Pace for the financial help, from my mammogram to all that followed until my breast surgery. Could not have done it without them. My surgery was a success and I am cancer free. Thank you again.
I was thrilled to learn Pink up the Pace was able to help me with my mammogram. Not having insurance and starting a new career at this stage in my life it sure made things easier for me. As a 3x cancer survivor, I am very grateful! I plan on volunteering to give back to this wonderful organization. Thank you!
In April 2015 I experienced symptoms in my left breast that required diagnostic testing. At that time I didn't have health insurance and had no idea what I'd be facing in terms of treatment costs. Dr Jago's nurse, Mickey, told me about Pink Up The Pace, and through her efforts, PUTP paid for my MRI, which led to the diagnosis of breast cancer. I am extremely grateful that this fund was available to help me when I needed it most. Breast cancer is scary, but with the help and support of organizations like Pink Up The Pace it helps provide peace of mind - not only the financial aspect, but to know that you're not in it alone - that there are survivors out there living their lives and continuing to contribute to help combat this awful disease. From the bottom of my heart - thank you.
