Why We Do This
Billions of dollars have been invested by nonprofit and for-profit organizations to find the cure to breast cancer. While the Pink Lotus Foundation supports every one of these critical efforts, it is unclear if and when the cure may ever be found.
Helpless women without insurance or with insufficient coverage face lack of care, delayed care, uncertainty, anxiety, fear, and sadly, death from breast cancer on a daily basis. The Pink Lotus Foundation’s mission is to reduce these senseless deaths and speed up necessary medical treatment by enabling underprivileged women to receive free care to screen for, diagnose, and treat any type of breast related illnesses today – because for a woman with breast cancer who is unable to receive treatment, today is all that matters. For her, the cure to cancer will never come fast enough.
