The Pink Pamper – Helping Women in Pittsburgh PA
The Pink Pamper is Pittsburgh’s preeminent cancer-related non-profit. Since 2008 our mission, which is to improve the lives and well-being of women impacted by the devastating and life-altering effects of a cancer diagnosis, has been at the forefront of our focus. All of the proceeds raised each year are distributed to women who reside in the greater Pittsburgh area.
How it all got started
With the intention of having an evening of good wine, good girlfriends and good laughs evolved into one of the most meaningful moments in our lives. A heart-felt discussion revealed our mutual desire to make a difference for others, specifically women who had been diagnosed with cancer. Our path became clear to design a non-profit for that very purpose. Soon after that night back in 2008, The Pink Pamper was born and became a 501(C)(3).
The top priority was to support women with cancer. Women who desperately needed extra encouragement during the most difficult time in their lives. Women who needed help paying for things like prescription copays, healthy organic foods, gas for their cars and natural-looking prosthetic wigs. It is a medical myth that insurance covers everything when it comes to cancer. IT DOES NOT. So as the need for assistance for other things like groceries, organic foods, co-pays, deductibles and more grows, so does the support from The Pink Pamper.

Why We Do What We Do
Each year thousands of people confront cancer. Regardless of what type of cancer our patients face, the pain and distress can leave a person feeling alone, confused and unable to resume an active life. While the healing process is slightly different for each person, the goal of The Pink Pamper remains constant; to improve the lives and well-being of women impacted by the devastating and life-altering effects of a cancer diagnosis. We want women with cancer to feel empowered with the added benefit of feeling beautiful about themselves by providing prosthetic wigs and other tangible beauty items that will benefit the integrity of beauty from the inside out.
To meet our growing and evolving needs, we must increase our capacity in order to provide wigs, food, transportation, money for co-pays and any other financial support our patients may request. Many individuals are considered high risk due to the COVID 19 virus and their compromised auto immune system. These individuals often struggle with depression, isolation, and other barriers in their healing process.
