Paint Georgia Pink's proceeds are distributed to local hospital foundations specifically set up to provide direct assistance to patients battling breast cancer who may find they come up short in other financial areas.
Many of these worthy recipients may be hourly workers who have to take time off from their job for surgery, recovery, and follow up treatment. This sometimes puts them in a circumstance where not enough income is there to cover their monthly obligations.
The hospital cancer centers have staff specifically designated to screen these patients and find the greatest need, then work with the entities to get these bills paid before the patient loses their housing, utilities or something as simple as missing a doctor's appointment because they didn't have enough gas in their car.
We believe breast cancer patients fighting for their lives against this disease do not need the added stress of worrying about financial obligations they were able to meet before breast cancer struck!
