Friends in Pink is a 501(C)(3) nonprofit group that was formed in 2009 and is committed to raising funds for those who have been diagnosed with Breast Cancer in the Roxborough Manayunk Community. Our mission is to assist with unexpected medical costs, copay’s, activities of daily living, transportation costs and other unexpected expenses that people have to deal with when coping with this diagnosis. All money raised stays in our community for those who live in 19127 and 19128.
Most of the people that we have helped have been brought to our attention by neighbors. If you know someone who you think may be qualified please download the application for them.
Sometimes it is better to get the application to a family member or friend that is able to help in making sure that the application is completed due to the emotional state of the person who has been diagnosed.
How to help
Friends In Pink is a registered 501(C)(3). Please know that your donations are appreciated and go directly to helping your neighbors. Our “overhead” is minimal as it does not include any salaried personnel. We are all volunteers.

Please come and join us on May 8th as we support the annual 5-Mile Mothers Day Walk/Run! By supprting the Mothers Day Walk/Run, created by Jackie Ashenfelter and Maureen Pownall, a portion of the proceeds will go directly to our funding to continue to help and service women in the community as they continue to defeat breast cancer.
