Supporting Breast Cancer Patients in West Michigan

Facing breast cancer is a tough journey, but no one should bear it alone. In addition to the medical challenges, patients and their families grapple with everyday burdens, from transportation to treatment centers to preparing supper to maintaining a clean home.

Pinkn’ Patch’s mission is to lighten those loads, enabling them to focus on the most important thing — healing.
