The Pink Pamper – Helping Women in Pittsburgh, PA
Since its inception in 2008, the Pink Pamper has been driven by its mission: To improve the lives and well-being of women impacted by the devastating and life-altering effects of a cancer diagnosis.
How it all got started
An evening that began with the intention of some girlfriends getting together to share good wine and some laughs, evolved into one of the most meaningful moments in our lives. A heartfelt discussion revealed our mutual desire to make a difference in the lives of others, specifically women who had been diagnosed with cancer. Our path became clear – to design a non-profit organization for that very purpose. Soon after that night in 2008, The Pink Pamper was born.
It is a myth that insurance covers everything when it comes to cancer, so this group of like-minded girlfriends decided that their organization’s top priority would be to support women with cancer by assisting them with things that are not covered by insurance – prescription copays, deductibles, healthy organic foods, gas for their cars, natural-looking prosthetic wigs, etc. As this list has grown, so has the support from The Pink Pamper.
Why We Do What We Do
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 in the Pittsburgh area who are impacted by the devastating effects of a cancer diagnosis. It is our belief that being able to retain dignity and a positive self-image is essential to healing and facing the challenges of cancer treatments. We want women with cancer to remain confident, in themselves and their looks, and feel beautiful inside and out. By providing prosthetic wigs and other tangible beauty items, The Pink Pamper helps women feel empowered to keep fighting through their battle with cancer.
