Help Provide Support So Those with Breast Cancer Can Heal
Cancer is a diagnosis that no one wants to hear. Many of us have lost family members and dear friends to this hideous disease. Every 14 seconds, somewhere in the world, a case of breast cancer is diagnosed – a sobering statistic. Paint Pink is a non-profit created by Kim Keene, a breast cancer survivor, and her supporters. As a cancer survivor, Kim knows all too well that insurance does not cover many patients’ needs.
The average cancer patient loses over $92,000 due to treatment-related costs.
Paint Pink Inc. aims to support cancer patients with goods and services not covered by insurance: payment of bills, legal fees, personal care items, house cleaning, meal delivery and more.
Covering the costs of services that insurance doesn’t cover is a common concern associated with cancer treatment that people often forget, adding more unnecessary stress for patients. This is the reality for many who are affected by cancer.

Stories of Hope
“Being a survivor now, I realized I was not educated or aware about what breast cancer actually was and how it impacted and affected people.”
Breast Cancer Survivor & Caridad Supporter
Caring for certain pets might increase your risk of getting an infection. Not all pets pose the same risks, and not all cancer treatments do, either. If you have pets, tell your cancer care team about them and your routines for caring for them.
A cancer diagnosis can affect the emotional health of patients, families, and caregivers. Common feelings during this life-changing experience include anxiety, distress, and depression.
