Donee Spotlight: Coalition of Blacks Against Breast Cancer

10 Jun

Your donations at work!

The Pinkwellchick Foundation, Inc., Board is proud to announce its $1,000 sponsor donation to the Coalition of Blacks Against Breast Cancer. Our founder, Barbra Watson-Riley, was a founding Board Member of CBBC.

“Learn. Share. Support. Survivor Stories.”

The Coalition of Blacks Against Breast Cancer (CBBC) mission is to provide high quality, reliable information and support to Black breast cancer patients within the Phoenix metropolitan area, and to educate the community about breast cancer prevention, diagnosis, and screening. The CBBC is the only group within Metro Phoenix that provides information or resources specifically for Black women and men with breast cancer. The CBBC is an initiative of The Phoenix Chapter of the Links, Incorporated, Sigma Pi Phi Gamma Mu Boule, and Mayo Clinic.

Every person of African descent who is a breast cancer survivor in the Phoenix Metropolitan area will have access to high quality information, and support, and resources to assist in their breast cancer journey. Furthermore, as a result of the survivor efforts, the black population within the Phoenix Metropolitan area will become more educated about breast cancer prevention, screening, and treatment.

YOU are the change we seek on #givingTuesday

Looking for ways to GIVE today and through the holidays?

GT_Churchill_Quote-150x150Pinkwellchick Foundation, Inc. has joined the #GivingTuesday movement, a first of its kind effort that harnesses the collective power of a unique blend of partners—charities, families, businesses and individuals—to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season.

Coinciding with the Thanksgiving Holiday and the kickoff of the holiday shopping season, #GivingTuesday is aimed to inspire people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they support and help create a better world.

“#GivingTuesday is a counter narrative to Black Friday and Cyber Monday because it reminds us that the spirit of the holiday giving season should be about community and not just consumerism,” said Kathy Calvin, CEO of the UN Foundation. “The most meaningful gift we can give our children, loved ones, friends and neighbors is the commitment to work together to help build a better world.”

We believe #GivingTuesday will create an enduring and essential national moment around the holidays dedicated to giving, similar to how Black Friday and Cyber Monday have become days that are, today, synonymous with holiday shopping. And not a moment too soon. Because what the world needs now is love and what charitable organizations like Pinkwellchick Foundation, Inc. need … is YOU!

In the words of our founder, Barbra Watson-Riley: “DO SOMETHING”. You are the change we all seek!

The Facts About Breast Cancer: What, How, Why & What to Do

Cells in the body normally divide (reproduce) only when new cells are needed. Sometimes, cells in a part of the body grow and divide out of control, which creates a mass of tissue called a tumor. If the cells that are growing out of control are normal cells, the tumor is called benign (not cancerous). If however, the cells that are growing out of control are abnormal and don’t function like the body’s normal cells, the tumor is called malignant (cancerous).

Cancers are typically named after the part of the body from which they originate. Breast cancer originates in the breast tissue. Like other cancers, breast cancer can invade and grow into the tissue surrounding the breast. It can also travel to other parts of the body and form new tumors, a process called metastasis.
