By providing assistance with needs such as meals and housekeeping during breast cancer treatment, Pink Ribbon Girls hopes to help lighten your load while you Simply Fight!
Program recipient, Eugenia, explains what the Simply Fight! services mean to her.
I am so grateful to know that such a great resource is available to my family here in Dayton. (Joining Pink Ribbon Girls) was my first small step forward to try to locate a peer group and begin processing all that had transpired during my journey with stage four breast cancer.
I was diagnosed four days after giving birth to my son Azariyah. At that time, my daughters Kortney and Aliyah were 12 and 1. Imagine the turmoil in our home! I spent a lot of time trying to keep things together for everyone and I have to admit (ironically) that my treatment time was the only time that I had to be still, rest, and focus on me. I only made it through with the help of God. I was tremendously blessed throughout!
